Jon Topper Dinner Report: Why Not A Gas Fee?

OCCASIONAL MUSINGS FROM A BAND MANAGER

Mussesls_3This summer is going to really suck for bands on the road with buses and trucks.  Especially for the smaller bands on that end of the spectrum who play for a small ticket price.  Promoters always hit artists and fans with fees they cannot touch.  Maybe it is time for the artist to do the same thing.  A gas fee.  $.50 a ticket that goes right into the artists' pockets to cover travel costs. Neither promoters nor Agents would be able to touch this fee.  It would help cover exactly what it says.  After all, there is no show if the artist cannot get there.

For Dinner tonight I had small mixed green salad a cup of vegetable beef soup and scallops, mussels, tomatoes and  spinach in an asiago cream sauce tossed with penne.

Enjoy Your Dinner
