Thread Name: Fees (concert admission prices)
Subject: RE: Fees (concert admission prices)
We are talking about a small "folk club" run by amateurs. We've had Martin Carthy, Wizz Jones, Show Of Hands, Dave Swarbrick perform none of which asked for a fixed high ticket price - and they all got paid well above their contracted minimum fee by receiving a % of the tickets, which were usually in the range of 4 - 7. Then this character, who as far as I am concerned is not in the same league as those I've just mentioned, demands a minimum of 10 per ticket! Well I suppose he wants to keep his music amongst the middle classes - as I along with the people in the area who are unemployed and on income support or grafting for minimum wages won't be attending.
