Recording Artist Advocate: Christmas and the parties that go with it...

Again this year I hope you booked some well paying Christmas gigs.

Christmas and New Years! Great times for booking your band at the best prices.

Same advice as always: Schedule your end time so that people who want to stay later pay you extra for the privelage. (They'll take up a collection if they want you bad enough) Try to get extras - food or hotel acomodations. And don't let some alcoholic in the crowd get you too drunk to finish your set. You don't have to do shots just because they're free.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays - all of em'.

When you get back to a regular schedule, whatever that is, schedule some time in the studio and tell me about the great show you did.
