My two cents...
With bars its a funny thing...all they care about is how much they can sell. If the night is good they call you back. I had a gig a few weeks ago and its funny how I got the gig. I told the manager I could sell drinks...he did not listen to my CD or my press pack. I got the gig, funny as hell.
By the way I cannot go 500 feet within a Karaoke.
