and what is the pay . . .?
My jazz band came up with a scheme to get gigs by dividing the boroughs up between our members, each member being responsible for getting gigs in his area. Today a gig breaker was, "how much does this gig pay?" It's interesting to weed through the BS and the no nonsense, the guys who want to talk for twenty minutes before they negotiate and the guys that tell you the bottom line, and the guys who have five things going or are always going to get back to you. I was wondering, techniques, ideas or approaches that people have used to get well paid gigs and what works and what doesn't.
