The recent post about how much bars pay cover bands was depressing. Did anyone else get pissed by it? It makes me wonder why we do it? It can't be for the money, right? Why do we put up with the low pay and bad hours to STILL play covers in a bar band? For me, I love the guys I play with. I love the magic that happens when were on stage. I enjoy entertaining people. I guess, at the end of the day, I love playing music WITH others in FRONT of others. It's kind of hard to step away from. But why do you do it?
