theres quite a few people here whose opinoon i respect so i thought id run this by you all..
my duo, we need to increase our ratio of "callbacks".. so. we are doing gigs and theyre seeming to go down well. people in the crowd seem into it and we get compliments after etc.. the sound would match and IMO woudl genuinely think it is better than the sound of many other 2 pieces around here these days. you can judge for yourself.. on youtube
downsides i freely admit our set isnt wide ranging enough we cant cope with all crowds all situations.
our interaction with the audience - i would say its average. not terrible i have seen others a lot less communicative.
i think places think. yeah they were good,. nice stuff well dione.. but we dont take them that extra mile where they say. yes that was great. now how do i get those guys back here...
were trying to find ways where bar staff will come to us at the end with their diaries looking for dates.. and im not sure where to start!!!
anyone else languishing in this "good but cant get enough gigs" place??
there are also other factors beyond our control which have made it harder. we gigged every week last year. not this year - so the recession is biting here big time. but there are 2 pieces out there that are still doing it every week , and IMO i cant see what they got over us... on the contrary i think some of them arent great.. and of course some are..
any opinions weelcome.. and no need to hold back on any aspect. we're big boys we can take it.. if it could make a difference im all ears !
