NOW LETS TOUCH ON SOME AREAS ON WHY THE VENUES HIRE THE SAME GROUP TO PERFORM 2 TO 3 TIMES A MONTH. THE BOOKING PROCESS, CURRENTLY THE WORST ASPECT OF THIS WHOLE ROCK-N-ROLL SCENE, I'LL CALL THE ELECTRIC CIRCUS. AT LEAST THAT'S MY FEELING ON IT. ONCE A GROUP IS READY IT MAY TAKE A FEW MORE MONTHS TO LINE UP JOBS. AFTER ALL IT IS A JOB, SOMEBODY IS PAYING YOU TO PERFORM A SERVICE. DON'T TAKE ME WRONG, I ENJOY PERFORMING NIGHT AFTER NIGHT OTHERWISE I WOULDN'T BE DOING IT. THE WHOLE TIME YOU ARE GETTING READY TO PERFORM, VENUES ARE BOOKING OTHER ACTS. MANY OF THESE ACTS ARE NOT THE HIGH QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT YOU DESERVE TO SEE. THESE ACTS GO TO THE NIGHTCLUBS AND UNDERCUT TOP ENTERTAINERS GIVING THEM THE GIG BECAUSE THEY WILL PLAY FOR WHAT THE MANAGER SAYS THE GOING RATE IS. MOST OF THEM SAY $250.00, WHERE CAN YOU FIND QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT FOR THAT PRICE. SORRY FOLKS, NOT AT MY HOUSE AND NOT AT OTHER ENTERTAINERS HOUSES EITHER. AT LEAST THAT IS MY EXPERIENCE. DO YOU THINK MY FRIEND'S GROUP THE RHYTHM SCORCHERS PLAY FOR CHICKEN SCRATCH ? (HEY ACTION JACKSON, WHAT'S SHAKIN') I'LL TELL YOU THE ANSWER, NO !!! WHERE DO THESE NIGHTCLUB MANAGERS GET THESE NUMBERS FROM. MAINLY THEY TRY TO PAY AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE TO END UP WITH A BETTER REVENUE INTAKE AT NIGHT'S END. WHICH CUTS TOP ENTERTAINERS FROM THE PICTURE BECAUSE YOU HUNG AROUND ALL NIGHT SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY LISTENING TO A LOW QUALITY BAND. WHEN YOU SHOULD OF TOLD THE NIGHTCLUB'S MANAGER YOU AND ALL YOUR FRIENDS WERE LEAVING BECAUSE THE LOW QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT THAT THEY HIRED SUCKS, AND YOU ARE GOING WHERE THE COMPETITORS CARED ENOUGH TO DISH OUT DECENT PAY FOR TOP QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT. WE WILL DIG DEEPER INTO THE UGLY TRUTH OF WHY THERE IS LOW QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT ON THE CIRCUIT ON THE FOLLOWING PAGE SO READ ON INTO THE FINAL INSTALLMENT OF THIS ARTICLE...
