Small Shows

Find small bars or clubs that don’t have a constant flow or large amount of customers.

Work out a deal with the club, bar or restaurant.
You should keep most of if not all the money made at the door.
Tell the owner they can keep the bar and food sales.
You get what's made at the door.

Explain to them this is a discount, you usually charge no less than whatever amount you think sounds right a show.
It’s a win win for both, explain to them if you don’t bring guest than you don’t make any money.
