Today I saw an unusual posting on CL looking for bands. It seems over the top to me in terms of working requirements and obligations. Maybe I'm ill informed? Maybe there's a big pay day in this type of venue (for musicians)? Does this sound like a real opportunity or something else? remarkable opportunity for a new bands! New upstart Gentlemens club in Old Bridge New Jersey seeks live bands. we would prefer pop or rock bands to play mostly top 40 in between our dancers sets. must be able to handle virtually any request. you'll be paid a flat fee of $75 plus any tips the patrons give you. you will be encouraged to tip the Soundman generously. we have just installed a like new Pyle audio sound system with a 10 channel Yamaha board with onboard effects. must be able to work Sundays through Wednesdays and bring a crowd between the hours of 8 PM and 3:30 AM. absolutely no one in the band should be under 21. anyone in the band caught consuming alcohol or smoking on the premises will be terminated immediately. there is to be absolutely no fraternizing with the female dancers, failure to comply will result in prosecution to the fullest extent of the law. ideally I would like a 4 to 6 piece band, we have a generous 11 feet wide by 6 foot deep stage fully capable of fitting all of your equipment. bands may be required to sell tickets on certain nights of the week to bring in more of a crowd. our parking lot is small and therefore our employees are not permitted to park on the property. A shuttle bus will pick you up from an off-site parking facility and drop you and your equipment off in front of the building. you are responsible for paying your own way at our offsite parking facility tickets will not be validated. ideal candidates will work with our legal team to sign a mutually acceptable contract guaranteeing what you can bring to the table. this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a strong following and get massive exposure by some real power players that will be coming to this club Sunday through Wednesday nights. I am also throwing around the idea of having only male dancers Sundays through Wednesdays, so you would have to be OK with this. bands may be required to agree to random drug screening on nights they are working. 20% of your tips go back to the house, no questions asked. please send me YouTube videos of your band with head shots and resumes of each band member including a letter of intent. top 20 applicants lucky enough to be chosen will have to agree to a battle of the bands contest in which bands will sell tickets to bring the biggest crowd possible. The top five bands to sell the most tickets combined with a large sum of money spent at the bar will win a spot in the rotation at our club. must be willing to wear a suit paid for by you. any tip total in excess of $200 Will go back to the house for each dollar over 200. do not pass up this fantastic opportunity as they do not come around very often just take a look at the other craigslist ads.
