This quote is from a personal experience, and may be funny or interesting only to me, but here goes:
Several years ago I went into a local drinking establishment (which featured live music on weekends) and inquired as to whether they would be interested in having me come in with my acoustic guitar some "weekday" around 5:30 or so, just to play instrumental selections for an hour or so, totally unplugged, for the people who stopped by after work to have a drink. I offered to do the first appearance without compensation, just to see how it went. I emphasized that there would be no vocals, no amp, no P.A., just me and my guitar and perhaps a chair, all tucked unobtrusively into a corner. The manager said he'd give it some thought; so, a few days later, one of his bartenders called me and said that the manager wanted to let me know that he appreciated my inquiry, but that................. "We're not set up for that."
