All of us musicians in a band KNOW we're not getting paid what we are worth, right? So instead of kissing the asses of the bar and club owners of Texas, we need to BE our own venue!! That way WE control everything, location, lineup and PAY! My idea is to have a Woodstock-styled festival in south Texas but with a lot of control of the money side for maximum fun. It's no fun playing a shit can gig for pennies when OUR talent demand maximum pay. WE are professionals. The catch is to have an anchor band, like The Doobie Brothers or a solid tribue band like CCR Revisited to be the headliner. Then you and I and OUR bands fill in throughout the day. The bands make a percentage of the food and drink and get paid what we are worth, $125.00 to $300.00 per hour per man for a 4 pc. band with the food and drink cut. I've crunched the numbers and it will work. I have a huge farm south of San Antonio, Texas to pull it off and I know the Sheriff, too!! If you are interested in helping put this thing together, Then call me at show contact info
and let's get this party started. I'm a 67 year old drummer with 53 years in the BUSINESS side of music as well as on stage with some fine bands. It can work and make the club owners stand up to know they don't run the show, WE DO!!! As June Carter Cash sang? "Time's A Wasting"!!! Thanks!
