This is often a question I ask myself and like to relay it to the forum. I understand that being a new band, not many clubs/promoters will want take a gamble with you. Hell, in my situation, being an original metal band makes me a leper among theives. So I understand that the first couple of shows will have to be freebies if offered. While my band, which formed this last March, did a few shows which won us some fans. Now, I'm wanting to know when is the exact time to tell bookers/clubs/promoters that we like to have some pay for it now.
No announcement yet.
