I'm not trying to sound greedy or anything at all, I just wish for some more people.
So my questions to you are, how do you get crowds at your gigs? Am I doing something wrong? Am I not doing enough? What are your advertising methods?
Do you have any tunes to listen to? Maybe, dare I say it, your music doesn't appeal to a lot of people, the music business is tough, most bands don't appeal to a large audience. More than likely you'll eventually find a day job and become a weekend warrior, it happens to most of us, but don't sweat it, as long as you have your passion for drums and music you'll be successful.
