So i have spent about 11 months trying to set up a wedding band (about 6 hours average of work per week getting everything set up) and it was a great success. Got the place packed all night (give or take a few bum notes) and the guy gave us a tip so i ended up with £1k! Some people might see it as selling out but im jamming with my prog metal band tomorrow so i dont give a ****..better than working in mcdonalds!

Im so hyper i cant sleep..had about 6 pepsis

holy crap dude is it normal for a wedding band to make that much? I'm a singer/songwriter acoustic dude, i wonder if a wedding couple would dig just one dude playing acoustically...prob not...i wonder what kind of job i could get just playing for people


PS Congrats

What are you talking about? It's daytime here. And you can sleep when you're dead.

Congrats though.

maybe for drinks reception man get in touch with a lot of agents and they will get you work..demo, photos and biog you need. They will only pay about $500. I run a 5 piece band and its made up of foreign musicians and my pupils i teach so they dont get a equal share (well 1 years work for a 27 year old should be $30000 at least so its payback time).
