Well done Richard. Sometimes you get lucky! where I live, There just isn't anywhere nearby to play....Can't afford the petrol on a speculation.
An example, when I was with Patterson Jordan Dipper, we were offered a gig in South Shields.
After working out the travel costs (about 1200 miles between us, and 3 days out of our lives!) two play for an hour and a half the fee of 150 and two nights on a floor didn't really seem worth it! Don't get me wrong, the organisers were lovely, but 1500 would have been nearer the mark!
