  • I got a gig today by simply liking a Facebook post.

    I noticed that a small shop near my house was being converted into a bistro. Sort of a wine bar/coffee house deal. I looked them up on Facebook, liked, then sent them a message asking about gigs. Because it's a small place I made sure to stress I am small footprint and lower volume. Owner texted me back saying they would think about it.
    Today, I'm wasting time on Facebook and I see they've posted a picture of the construction. I like the post and 5 minutes later I get a text asking me to play the grand opening party.
    If I play this right I could get a semi regular gig 5minutes from home!

    Awesome - congrats! Good luck - I hope the grand opening turns into a semi-regular gig for you!

    Please let us know how it goes.

        I've made some worthwhile connections on facebook over the years. Good luck or skill?
