Either way it is a hard sell. There are a half a dozen blues clubs around me within 20mi or so. They expect you to play it all night. The only problem is that there are around 200 blues bands trying to get booked in these places. To me it is better to play the situation. Of course that insight comes with around 55 years of playing out. I wish I could bring myself to quit. I did last year. Just when I think I'm out .... they drag me back in.
