I'd like to take this opportunity to tell the "we only play originals so if you play covers don't waste our time" bands to take heed. I can do a three-hour show with proven original material and get checks in the mail twice a year. I love playing other stuff. I like it and have respect for good work and obviously so does the general public. And don't give me the "it ain't about the money,,, it's art" bullshit. If your music never produces any money then your ART ain't very smART. Get off the couch and do what you have to in order to be seen and heard,,,,THEN,,, you can give them what you want them to hear. I'll shut up now.

Amen.
(you and I discussed this friday Colonel)
Any band that plays out should be able to do a solo 4 hour show.
Get them originals out with stuff everybody can sing, and dance to.
Its not about how good you are, its about how many asses are in the seats, dancing on the dance floor, paying a cover when they come in, and above everything else...how many drinks they buy.
You do that everywhere you go...
Then whats next, up your price, then start doing out of town venues crawling little by little away from your home base.
Then you might get picked up by a major label...and for what?
How many drinks you sell on a regional level.

3DD did covers.
Metalica did covers.
If you never did covers how did you ever learn how to play?
I'll call you a lie and 7/8ths

Tell em Spert, SO BE IT plays mostly covers with a few originals. We have played 4 even 5 hour shows without repeating a song and best of all. WE GET PAID for it unlike most all original bands that have to have 3 bands to complete a night.
