Typical Call

Filed under: Business,Disclosure,Music — jasony @ 11:53 am

Just had this conversation with a Major Client:

“Hi, we’ve got a great job we want you to do. It’s for a major national venue with huge public exposure (2.5 million+ people). 20 minutes of music. It’ll be performed every hour on the hour, 10 hours per day. Multiple live singers. Runs for 6 weeks. Sponsored by Coke!

We can pay you $400. Maybe $500 if we stretch the budget. Oh, and we need the music this week.”

I mean, how can a guy with two decades’ experience say no?

Believe it or not, this is typical of the kinds of calls working musicians field on a regular basis. A very regular basis.

Sigh.
