I'm toying with the idea of approaching a few of the better local bands to offer my services as a live engineer. Some light background: only one local venue has installed sound, so everyone has their own rig for the other places no one is paid very well The plan is to use my mixer, but their speakers, monitors, etc. Without even getting into what to charge because I'll decide what I can accept, then biggest issue I can see is, "But our fans already love how we sound. Why should we hire you?" I can't even figure out a good reply for that.
