RE: [BucksMusic] Showcase! Any takers?

From: Bob D.

SO,
 
At the risk of getting flamed, here is my 2 cents.
 
While I must admidt, this open mic is amoung one of the best in the area, if not the best. It is acoustic focued, and collaboration usually spawns from it. I like playing there because I see my friends (Chris V, John H, Skip, Esty, D Mun, just to name a few) play and learn new tunes, and people who I dont interact as much ( Rob, Tom S, Leo, etc) and help me appreciate different types of Music ( Jody King-old time country, Bluegrass, etc.).
 
That being said, as far a "negotiatiing from a position of leverage" , understand there are open mics EVERYWHERE. There are people who would be more than happy to take over the open mic from this group. While yes, we are a weekly event, but there is an agreed upon monetary amount that both sided discussed in good faith. To go back and ask for more money, gives them an out to get someone else in for the venue. It is not negotiating on good faith.
 
I also agree wiht Serge, the showcase if it goes through should not be paid. I play out in a band, but I do not come here to get paid. It is a meetup group, after all. This is not the idea I believe this group got together, if I remember why I was interested in this in the first place.
 
Also, If a showcase goes through, I think a first come first serve idea is not a good idea. I liked what Serge did about approaching people and asking if they would be interested. Then you can post the schedule  on the meetup site. 
 
 However, I am one of those people who stay the first part of  the night (because Im old, LOL). I have to get up early for work, so I need to hit the hay earlier. If this delays the start of the Open Mic, as well as screws upmnthe time and stuff, I may not come as often, due to the fact I have to work and I olike ti eat lol.
 
Hope this helps shed light. If not sorry if I offended...
 
Bob

Let's not undervalue the contribution our meetup makes to the venue; upon looking at Brady's upcoming events for the entire summer, our open mic night comprises 80% of their events: http://www.bradys-pub.com/events/

It seems as though we're really the only regular attraction this place has going for it. Perhaps there is some leverage there for negotiation? :P

I'll settle any questions about money. None, zero, zilch!  We tried that with the Showcase at Katie O's and it didn't work

Thanks,
