I love living here in Summit,NY I have acheived the American Dream own 4 businesses and a home that I've actually rejected a $350,000 offer for.So what's the problem you ask? Well I'm an r&b performer who has toured the U.S,Germany,Austria and Canada over the past 20 years or so. It really amazes me that I have only been able to book one paid gig in Schoharie County.It really burns me up espescially because as soon as they see me I'm treated like a second class citizen!I wish I could say "maybe I'm not good enough" but very rarely can I get the owners to even listen. Proof of this is my guitar player went out to have a cigarette at one of the places I dropped a demo to.Now mind you I have an internationally released c.d.out and that is what I use for a demo,photo and all!Well he couldn't help but to notice My demo was next to the dempster on the ground fully shrink wrapped still!When I meet with these owners they are fully aware that they are getting a hot show that absolutely nobody in this area would have the" *!lls " to even attempt.Lights,Chick dancers,smoke,animated video usually covering the entire ceiling or dance floor and I even do a live levitation "totally" impromptu on stage.The music is all original commercial"fly 92" type stuff.The few gigs we have had up here have been very successful to the point where after we were done 1 time and broke and loaded all the equipment up the crowd took up a 175.00 collection for us just to play another hour! I guess the point I'm trying to make here is when I visit my hometown in Schenectady I spend half the day defending the generally good people up here in Schoharie,however the Bar owners have really p'd me off.I've even offered to play free" Something I never did in my 20 years of touring.But this is why we have a forum in Schoharie right?So therefore I go on record to say "hey owners! Your customers deserve a hot show once in a while after all they spend hundreds if not thousands a week to hear bands butcher such classic hits as" mustang sally" I feel they deserve more!
