Wow that would be something. Where I live it's the cover bands that make the most money. No one really comes out to see original bands of any genre. It's really sad but it is what the people are doing.
Cover bands that are any good here will make $400-$500 a night. Of course I live where the economy dropping is hitting the worst. People don't have much money and it really shows when at a venue.
