Thread Name: Fees (concert admission prices)
Subject: RE: Fees
There is a pub between Guisborough and Whitby that I was in when I was playing in a blues/rock band a while back and was tentatively asking about gigs. I got chatting to the landlord about bookings and he was talking about the risk he took booking people. There were two acts that were exceptions and he was always safe with - one being Vin Garbutt and the other being the Blueflies.

Both always packed the place - people will pay for an evening that they know they will be entertained by and Vin delivers. Presumably people would not fill the place and believe they get value for money continually unless it was.
