You're quite welcome Alice.

Another reality check for the un-initiated just occurred to me - that being what constitutes a good band or good act, in a club owners' mind.

And that is the band's/performer's ability to draw a crowd and.............SELL BOOZE. Period.

Club owners don't give a rat's ass how good or how talented the act or performer is. If the act generates lots of revenue for the club from liquor sales, then it is a GREAT ACT! If it doesn't, it's shit.

Ask any dues-paying musician if I'm wrong about this.
