I think most cities offer all that plus as well. In a town of less than 50K, drinking is probably a main activity.

WRONG!!!!!!! Going to Jail is..Salina is the DUI capital of the world


"Visit Salina where you go for vacation but leave on probation"

Now can we please get back on topic
DUI Capital?? Um, i'm no scholar but I believe that the main cause of that is......DRINKING! Which kind of confirms drinking is probably a main activity!

I THINK THE WEIGHT LIFTING "THING" IS MORE ABOUT CHIPPINDALE TYPES SHOWING OFF THEIR BODIES IN GEMINI'S FAVORITE BARS.

To each their own. My bar owners recognize this; In this town there is a moratorium on Drinking and Driving.
A Prohibition of sorts. So that means first they should not be counting on me to bring a following. I would have a following if I had a show just down the street at their competition's bar on a different night. Bands do not have followings across town anymore either, unless you count their girlfriends, boyfriends, or family.

So neighborhood bars are just that again. Neighborhood folks in attendance. The owner knows his neighborhood best and how to bring them in. Karaoke is going to late hours and when people are drinking they want to be close to home knowing all the back ways out during that witching hour.

Salina, KS is not the size of the Denver Metroplex and your cops may be different than our many different suburban area cops one would have to navigate through to get home from a show.

Also, Karaoke enhances his business not mine. The philosophy is you bring them in and I will keep them here and ensure that they come back. That has already been satisfied at my shows, though I have had that conversation with the managers and owners prior. My singers don't even go down the street on the differing night for karaoke because they can't stand the mix even though the host has more tracks. Hosts are not doing their bar anymore on the same nights I do a show down the street because they can not compete. So, if you have a great show word of mouth travels.

Actually, I do have a few that may follow my show on any given night. Just do not count on a sizable portion and not always either.

Once you've had a DUI you learn. Even if your close friend gets one you pay a part of their price by trying to help them out with transportation to everywhere. Classes, Court, Work, Case Manager visits, Groceries, any errand.

I have not had to do any grunt work to be successful in this piss-ant industry. If I ever have to I'm outta here.

You can footwork all you want.

My signature used to read "My job is: (A) to keep them here and coming back.... and NOT, (B) leaving and NEVER coming back"

I agree that the majority of the responsibility to bring in customers should be on the venue. However, what is is even better is if you BOTH work on it.


There is nothing wrong with trying to build up a group of people who will come to your show through such things as social media, email etc.

just my two cents.
