Subject: RE: Tom Bliss - So long and thanks
Deciding which floor singer one includes on a guest night is a judgement. I can only assume that when I started out I was probably dreadful (and some may say, still dreadful). But I was given a chance. And I think I have improved.

I admit I try to choose wisely at the Sunray as to which singer to include in the running order. And yes, some singers can be dreadful and risk turning off your hard-earned audience. But it is useful for people striving to improve and get somewhere to face a reasonably sized audience.

And it is up to the audience to tolerate such support singers. Blimey, at the Sunray there is no door charge- and they still complain!!!

Actually, 99.99% of our audience love the club and continue to support us. And it's a hard-earned audience, as I have said- they don't come easily.
