I’m talkin to this musician, he’s a buddy of mine, he plays in a cover band. What’s cool is, they’re a cover band, and karaoke. You’re at the bar, you open up the book of songs, you put one down with your name, hour later, your name is called, you sing Paradise City with the band. He says to me, yeah, I’m almost making a living off it.
Musicians. Band members. This is what you have to do if you want to make any kind of money playing music. Start a cover band. Would I judge you? Hell no, nobody can. It’s a great idea. You learn the songs, you play the gig, people love it, you make a ton of money. A lot of people want to go out on a Saturday night, get some drinks with friends, see a band, and sing along to tunes they know. Fact. And again, you can make a ton of money on it. Just come up with some kind of shtick, like live karaoke, and I guarantee you, people will come out and see you, and you’ll make money. What’s wrong with that?
