  1. That’s my entire point of my trolling..
  2. Good. Stay inside for the few years you have left you old {censored}...I’m just down the street from you in Jupiter. Maybe I’ll come and breathe on you!! 😂😂😂😂🖕🏿💀🖕🏿
  3. Notes those figures are BS bro...Of course people are turning out to test positive for it because they are finally getting tested! However the deaths are going down so it doesn’t jive. Also you’ve got 50 to 90% false positives in these crappy tests and they can only test for a coronavirus not the specific one. Don’t believe everything you hear there aren’t bodies stacked at Hospitals and in the streets. Seriously guys. How long have you all been on the planet? Did the world ever completely shut down when they were years like every year when millions of people die around the world from tubercul
  4. You old men as so funny...😂😂😂 There has NEVER been a successful coronavirus vaccine on humans and there likely never will. Also, 99.97% of the population haven’t died of Corona yet you have no problem altering your existences forever and you’re fine with 50 million unemployed and the probability of this destroying our country completely. Ok...fine. Stay in your caves and rot. Your attitudes are anti-civilizational, irrational and have zero basis in observable reality, science fact or history.
  5. Sup peeps. I’m a bit south of Notes these day’s in Jupiter FL. Had my last gig on March 15th and was locked out of work until I played on the 29th of May and again this past evening. I had 21-26 gigs a month booked and lost about $20K worth of work. My steady Weekend stuff may start back up after July 4th I’m told and my Wed thing starts back up on the 24th. I was having my best 2 Gigging years financially before the shutdown. In fact my family and I were getting ready to take off for 3 months RVin around the west then come back to FL, live in the RV, work the season and next May hea
  6. Yea. Then you know burnout is a thing. I’m working my plan. 2019 was the last Year doing 240 dates. In 5 years we should be at about 50-60 making 2X the $$ between corporate, Tributes and weddings. That’s all I wanna do. We could easily get more. Life is short believe me I know man!!
  7. This is an old thread that somehow got dredged back up. I don’t give a {censored} what anybody else does. This is all I’ve done for a living since I was a teenager for the vast majority of my life. So naturally I’ll be coming from a different place than you. The shine of being on stage wore off 4 thousand gigs ago for me. I think if you love what you do and you made seven grand for three bookings was sitting on your tractor that’s awesome that’s what I wish for everyone. I made about $8000 in the last month killing myself so I’m trying to get to the point that you’re!!! no I absolu
  8. No I get it. I’m actually in a much better position than I was back when I originally posed this question. These days I have more gigs that I can physically do I’m starting to have some hand related issues playing so much as a result of age and overuse. So plans are in place to reduce the workload over the next couple years. Starting this year in which I will have three months off over the summer traveling. Thanks!
  9. I did 240 gigs in 2019 but made more money. It’s not that I’m burnt out it’s that I’m starting to have some hand arm issues from playing so much and I’m getting older. I’ll be 49 in March and between gigs and practicing I’m probably playing guitar 50 to 80 hours a week so I really need to lighten my load of acoustic gigs. We are trying to get these bands to play more as time goes on.
  10. Why do I do it? Because this is my vocation and this is what I do and this is what I’ve spent tens of thousands of hours becoming proficient at. I can’t simply stop. This is what I make 60 grand a year doing this is all I have. I am segue into being able to do it less however.
  11. 250 gigs. Almost all solo acoustic..drove 40k miles in my truck doing so. Almost $10k In tips...killed myself though. For whatever reason my corporate band hasn’t really gotten any work we wanted to take, Orlando event planners are so fickle and I’m over banging my head against the wall in frustration. Focusing now on building a wedding business up and we have an absolutely mind blowing journey tribute band it’s the best one I’ve seen out there (singer is amazing!) that we’re about to launch. Anyone wants to see some rough life rehearsal videos PM me. I definitely can’t keep this pace
  12. All of us know some all in musicians who went at it but never had the success they had hoped for. Somewhere around the late 50's to about 60 is where I have seen musicians who had previously toured and gigged a lot, start losing opportunities and begin to have less gigs available to them. Most of them have also never saved, had no retirement, etc. In fact the only ones that I know who are doing well either had some success when they were younger and invested but i'm not talking about them. In the group I'm referring to, the only older musicians that I know that have a pot to piss in really hav
