Picked up another event to do in Hoboken, NJ this past Saturday. I will be there playing outdoors in a very nice neighborhood that's full of upper middle class people. A Studio apartment over there might be $2,500. Other apartments might be $4,000 or more. Just a note here. This area is more then a 1 mile radius from where I live. I rarely get excited about doing an event. I'm excited about this one.

Tunes here's the latest. The one for Highlands, NJ I haven't heard anything yet. I assume they aren't interested since it been a few days since I got a response. The one in Pa. I was told may not happen because of money issues. That's as much as I know. Now I don't control a clients budget. All we can do is quote a price and see what happens. They both got a price quote and that's it. If they decide not to book us, then we just got to keep it moving. We have other events to do besides those 2. So no biggie. Of course like any one of us we wish everybody who contacts us would book us. That's not the reality for anybody on here. Just part of the business.

Did you ever get your van fixed Adrian? If so, what was the problem with it?

The REAL question is....
Why does his partner need HIM?
(a rhetorical question)
Mixy has the equipment & transportation. The partner doesn't"t drive.

I got a call yesterday from a promoter who was looking for me to possibly do an event for him on June 18th. He said he would call me in 2 weeks to let me know if he's sold enough tickets to do the show. Not very promising to me. Either you're going to do it or you're not.

We have 2 events this weekend. Friday I will be doing all the playing and Saturday we both will be playing. Saturday is a one year old birthday celebration. The girls name is Harmony and her birthday is on Friday. I will be using some lights with the light stand. Sunday I plan a day of rest and watching Backlash. Saturday is funny to me. I believe this is the second one we've ever done. This is not about a one year old. This is about the adults showing off and having a good time.

So, he called you on May 2nd to say there MAY be an event on June 18th, one of the busiest months for events. He'll call you within a month of the event to let you know that its on and you are booked. Not very promising is the understatement of the year.

When you let people know you are available for such an arrangement, you are broadcasting that not only aren't you booked, but there is little to no possibility of you getting booked by anyone else. Make yourself at least appear a little more in demand.

I'm getting work. I don't sweat things like this. If I don't do that event another one is coming around the corner.
