Pay Here, Said The Angel Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Just came up with this one (I am a compulsive thinker; wheels always turning). I remember when DA and The Dogs came to my semi-local venue the door charge was like $5.00 or $10.00. I marveled that anyone would tour like all over the America for what must have been a paltry sum at the end of it all. (I remember Denni Doogerman commented at one of the Dogs dates that they needed money to get to Kentucky. I don't think he was kidding.*)

What we need (I'm on board for this) is for, say, six "Angels" to drop just a monster sum into the plate, or at the door, to keep the tours worthwhile, and pay the guys we love to make the music we love; in short, to make music profitable and not so much a labor of love. I'm not rich by any means, but I think this would be a good investment. At one of the Dogs dates I did my best to empty the merch table. We can continue to do that, plus the Angel thing. I could do $300. I could do that a couple of times. ** If several Angels did that, then one gig at, say Joe's Java could net $2,000 for the guys. Twelve stops on a tour and that's $25,000!!! The rest of the folks not in the know could just pay $5.00 or whatever.

This could help our guys tour more often and enrich them. I say this because it looks like for cult bands like our guys record sales don't help much.

Cool or not? Modifications? Suggestions?

all in favor of thinking how we can expand their exposure and income, maybe some event(s) in conjunction with a release of the DHSTA video still to come out.

As much as I love them I think we're looking at a limited demo. So Christian males age 45+?
