Gigging at restaurants...

Views: 509
Comments: 9
I think out of all possible places to gig, restaurants have GOT to be my favorite. After a night of show playing, I've come to change my mind about the whole "Large venues are better."  I mean, who could pass up a little bit of free food??  You come in, play a little bit of music, eat a complimentery dinner, take breaks, get paid a great deal of cash, and leave both your wallet and belly full.  If you're feeling extra over the top, you might as well order a coffee and dessert, too! Its always fun to screw with the waiters.

Anyone else with me on this? Or am I just going crazy?
I mean, where do you like to play and why??

I actually prefer the larger venues.

I've only played at a few bigger venues/outdoor gigs. But for me it's just so much better. Having a wall of sound behind you while you play for a fuck load of people as just fantastic.

i like playing at parties myself. Wether it's a big party or just 20 or 30 ppl there's just so much energy to thrive on!

Yeah, parties are better, you're not on a stage, so you're close to people and prettymuch everybody's hammered and the energy is great.

if it's got an audience and a bar i'm happy to play there, but free food is an added bonus

I don't know how many restaurants would allow me to play my particular brand of hard rock. Certainly not Italian ones, considering my song Sexy Lasagna...

I doubt restaurants would let my band play, with all T3H M3TALZ and all. But I would love to play a club, playing more chilled out music.
