Topics / Gear Talk / 5 bands a night too many?

    Do you think bars/clubs who do a 5+ bands a night gig, are putting on too many bands in one night for the bands to get a fair play?

    No one really gets a chance to warm up when you have too many bands playing in one night...

    5 is bullshit 2bands . maybe solo act and band.. all the bar is trying to do is keep costs down and we all need to hold tight and work towards having a collective agreement on cost so we get a decent return for our works 5 mean you will be playing for free basically

    I understand the pubs have to make a return on their outlay, but bands should all band [no pun intended] together with a collective bargaining set up so that we can all get a fairly decent nights pay for our time.

    The trouble I see here is that the weekend warrior bands don't really depend on this work as their main income and therefore can afford to play for less as where full time pro. musicians are trying to keep the pricing at a reasonable level.

    We have this situation in the UK, but it's getting better.
