At the same time I see posts on Facebook and Twitter all the time dealing with the lack of support you very talented people get.
I am now financing a documentary film to support Indie artists in New York City. My goal, to show the world what it takes to survive in the music industry. The rejection, the hard work, the education needed, the rehearsal time, the venue owners who take advantage of you and especially the ones who do not!
I have heard over and over from most of you, how difficult it is to get people out. I have written articles on this twice in the past. Some of the reasons given are the high unemployment, the price of gas, the recession in general.
Yes I agree the above are factors, but there are other issues I see, that come from the performers.
So I'm issuing a challenge to any and all of you, especially if I have written about you or posted your gigs, time and place and urged people to get out and see you!
I'll be in New York City on April 26th. As I always do, I will get to see as many of you as I can.
...and I want to see you guys out there helping me...come out show support, join me, I can't do it alone, I as always will bring people with me, you do the same...
Last time I came to New York I invited 50 people to come to Pianos to see Kalen, 45 said they were coming...6 showed up, and I brought 3 of the 6 with me.
