Business The Four-Band Bill
posted by June 19 at 10:53 AMon
Is it too much?
Are four bands in one night at one club too much?
With that fourth band, yes, itís one more band bringing people out. And venues need to make money. More bands, more draw.
But dealing with three set changes and four drum sets? Epic hassle, in a dark, crowded club. The key is sharing drums. But does that happen much?
Having an acoustic opener or a DJ is different too. Sometimes, though, acoustic bands and DJs donít match well with certain bills.
With four bands, it seems on some occasions, more time is spent on set changes than on the bands actually playing. And on the four-band bill, that first band has to start at what, 9:00 pm?
As a club owner, Iíd be for the four-band bill. As a soundman or a musician, Iím not for it. As a show goer, Iím indifferent somewhat.
