I saw an ad today on the ol' Craigslist looking for solo duo acts.
Typical three hour bar gig, but they are demanding a first set of AT LEAST 2 hours, then one 15 minute break, then the final 45-min set.
Now, I'm a performer that typically only takes one break during a three hour gig. Usually somewhere around halfway. Sometimes toward the 2 hour mark. Sometimes the break is only a few minutes. Other times (if a lot of friends are there), it can be long. On occasion I'll play three hours straight through with no breaks.
That being said, I've never heard of someone demanding that. Most performers take two breaks during a 3 hour show. How in the hell can you guarantee that you won't need to take a leak for at least two hours??
