Shaneo Paying to have open mike session (64* d) Paying to have open mike session 11 Sep 07


The fallowing was copy and pasted from my web site's guestbook.
I find it hard to believe that The Preforming Rights Society would look for money from a publican for having an open mike session,
Is this true ?


hi love this site so much, i send it to everyone. i run the smallest
pub in rugby, England. we have an acoustic/open mike night. all our boys n girls get a beer for their troubles but we have to pay a fee to the performing rights society which far outweighs any profit we might make. its sad when musicians want to protect their music so much..at the end of the day, they should remember their roots. we all picked up a guitar and played someone else's song!!!music is the only free entity left on this earth, keep it, enjoy it but most importantly...share it with others
