So, here’s a question for all 2.37 of you that read this thing… Is my music the sort of thing that you’d go out to hear?
Lemmie ‘splain. I started to play in coffeehouses last March, and since then I’ve noticed one trend: nobody shows up. 😀 No – that’s not totally true. But even the owners of the places have noted that it seems REALLY empty on nights that I play. So, this begs the question – is the type of music I play live the sort of thing that people will take an evening out of their busy lives to come and hear?
My show schedule is getting light again, and I’m just wondering if it’s worth the time and effort to fill it up again. Or, should I concentrate on other things. Coffeehouses don’t pay to have an artist appear – revenue comes from tips and selling merch – CDs, etc. And, although everything in life isn’t about the money, it is a factor.
Or, do I just need to do some major marketing, and give this thing a real go? I’m just not sure if the type of folks who would listen to my music are the type of folks who would come out and hear it at a coffeehouse.
So, anybody want to weigh in on this one? 😀
