Its a pretty good feeling when you look at your band calendar and say... whoa! The summer's almost totally booked up. Some people in my area are bitching on a local music FB group about no work to be had but it's there, just just have to look harder. We do bust our asses to get some gigs, I follow up as much as I can- (hopefully I am not too annoying) We try and practice when we can to keep our set fresh and a bit different. Upgrade our equipment as much as we can too. We offer a decent band IMO and a decent rate and we have steady gigs from now until the middle of September... Plus October is filled too.
