    Default Well it's official...

    ....back in Aug. my night at the club I play at had the highest grossing bar sales ever since it opened in Feb. :eek:

    Last night, I had lowest grossing bar sales ever since the club opened. :eek:

    This club has a max capacity of 600 ppl. Last night if we broke 75 ppl, I would've been surprised. Holy cow man, that was a beating. The last hour, there was only 5 people left a couple and a group of 3 chicks plus the bar manager and a bartender. I ended up just dancing around with the 3 chicks the rest of the night. I did not even bother mixing the last 2 hrs. I was just fading in/out songs that people requested. Played a couple of songs twice even.

    I wouldn't wish a night like to any DJ. Got paid though, so that was good.

    Yea, happened to me twice this year...First time there was some big concert in my town, so almost all clubs were empty that night. Had like 10 people and and another group of 15 people which were club owner's guests, since he got son born that day. Well, at least I was drinking whiskey on owners tab all night!

    I played a gig in October that had a total of 15 people by the time I was done. My set was from 9 to 10. I opened.

    The event was really poorly promoted.

    Are you in the US? Thanksgiving weekends are often deader than usual because everyone's home with their families and shit.

    Playing for an empty room sucks but its just part of the game. Try and learn from the experience any way you can.
