Bounty Hound Guest Nights on the way out (78* d) RE: Guest Nights on the way out 30 Sep 14


Mo, don't get me wrong, I was not knocking the enjoyment of participating, sessions, singarounds etc, whether they be round to room or all join in are great, and in my experience, those that go to that sort of event are generally modest types and not looking for self promotion. And of course participation in that type of evening is not about performance.

But the original question was whether guest nights are dying, so we are talking here about a more 'formal' concert situation, and there is (certainly in this part of the world, and I'm sure the same all over) a large group of people who are looking purely to perform and to promote themselves. My frustration is born out of those who want to put on their CV and proudly boast 'I've played The (insert name of your local club)' but never come and support that club on other occasions.
