Thread Name: Question for UK Folk Club organisers.
Subject: RE: Question for UK Folk Club organisers.
to anonymous guest.
it is not nonsense that people gravitate to packed venues and avoid empty ones, neither is it nonsense to say that the more bar takings and more people are in the club the happier the publican is., neither is it nonsense to say that folk clubs are there at the good will of the pub management.
it is a mistake to have a hard and fast rule that is not flexible, most important is that it is all sorted before a contract is signed or agreed to.
HAS ANYONE EVER EXPERIENCED A BOOKED BAND WANTING TO ALLOW IN 14 PEOPLE?I have never heard of it and i have been involved in folk music since 1966.
as i said, if the band were playing for door takings, if they insist on it they are cutting off their nose to spite their face.
