What style of gigs do you play?
Roadhouses -You know you have to move the pool table to set up. lol. Mostly no pa except for vox....a dude in back yelling "Freebird" all night and being very serious about it....."Mustang Sally' may get played twice on these nights. lol
Bars - A step up from roadhouses, but youre still essentially a jukebox Most things get mic'd but maybe not...One 'Mustang Sally" a night, only if needed?
Clubs - Where people come specifically to see live music. These all have stages and everything gets micd...Big pa and lights..lol...."Mustang Sally" by choice.
Weddings - You know the deal. You're there completely for them. Whatever they want you give them. It's their day. Respect it.
I am also curious as to roughly how many gigs do you do a year? .....and of which styles?
* Disclaimer - I really enjoy playing 'Mustang Sally' not so much for me musically but because I enjoy watching people enjoy it and watching them dance to it. It's just an example and I am half-joking. It's just a refence.
I look forward to reading your response.
