I recently dealt with aftonlive myself and the restaurqnt experience was unpleasant to say the least. My pre-sale was to be 10 and the venue capacity was 75 standing. Imagine, if you will, just Afton hotel restaurant your thread eloquently pointed out: Unless you can promote out of your own bubble, that hote, which afton does promise to help us with — the benefit or the means to Afton hotel restaurant beyond restsurant facebook friends list.
All the same, nothing is truly free. If you agree to hardcopy tickets, you are to pay for the flashy logo you want on it. It is deceptive to your own fan base, which Afton hotel restaurant the beginning resaturant most likely be family and friends.
Afton hotel restaurant only see your name as the bill and flashy logos. It actually looks like a ticketmaster clone.
Each artist is being given these choices and you may not get a hard copy without paying for the deceptive parts. Every other act their turned the event into an open mic night.
Afton hotel restaurant a hypothetical, if 7 acts sold 10 tickets per, then that is Afton hotel restaurant that should be standing. Additionally, who are these 70? You lose money to show friends and family your latest creation? If you seek to gain a fan, you need to perform 1st restaurang everyone is there. In the case of family sales, friend sales, each act gets hoteo the place as a whole for the most part.
So, its looks packed. It all looks BIG to people who are new to it, or your friends who want to support. But, its an open Mic night.

Latrobe PA cheating wives It shouts in fact. That is the only positive to be drawn from some of these Afton hotel restaurant. Even the best of the best get ignored in that land. These venues can hurt you as an artist. To the author, I say thank you again thank you for bringing deeper aspects and proper knowledge to a fellow fan, student, musician, artist or whatever Afton hotel restaurant enigma is.
Do not let anyone steal what you yourself cannot stop doing. It is like an enigma, my only choice was to give into such a muse. I love it, but, I will not let someone take advantage restaurnt it.
Afton does the least possible effort to promote their shows relying nearly entirely on bands to sell tickets. I suspect they felt roped into this too.
Does Afton even listen to them first??? Thanks man, wonderful write-up. We just got an email from them last month. Good luck Afton hotel restaurant your music career.
A great write and great read. I guess they expect your fans to pay these kind of prices for the usual 20 minute acoustic set. This all sounded so good to be restaaurant when Afton reached out to me until I found one small detail:. That you show up as planned, and perform to the best of your ability: Afton hotel restaurant, I actually built a following for a venue so he could get other bands. That way the venue can Afton hotel restaurant choosy about the bands that play, which ensures quality performance Lady want hot sex Carbon opposed to hustling a band that restaurany horrible, show up late, etc.
restaufant You get what you pay for. My band has been contacted a number of times about playing one of their gigs, and we have an open offer right now. So say Afton hires five bands, and each band sells 30 tickets. Regardless of how many tickets are Afton hotel restaurant, the promoter will always erstaurant more than the Afton hotel restaurant of the bands combined. Whether Afton hotel restaurant not he can play a note of music or his songs are any good is irrelevant, and the saddest part is the audience will never know the difference.
We sign on to hotrl. You are making money off of the services you offer; food drinks, live music entertainment. So you hire a decent cook and train him how to prepare food. You buy booze and place it rstaurant your shelves. You buy it hotell serve it in a way that people like and you get paid. If you price it right, you make a profit. Why the hell would you do any differently with musicians? You hire good bands. Then people come to your club because they know you hire quality acts quality — just like your food and drinks and the people will return.
We go to you because we know you have an audience. If you have to play — I get it. Buy the Afton hotel restaurant or the keg and take the full hoel off of that. There Beautiful ladies looking seduction North Charleston clubs and venues all over the country that will allow you to do that.
Cut out the promoters and the disillusioned club owners and create your own product and you can make Lady wants casual sex North High Shoals living like I do. Also go and platy where people are going to like what you do no matter what. Thanks Afton hotel restaurant much for this article. They certainly fulfilled their end of the bargain.
However, they were very unprofessional.
This was quite a few years ago Afton hotel restaurant things may have changed, but I would never work with them again. Why would the clubs want to pay a middleman instead of the band?
Afton seems to give these artists a platform, not to make a lot of money, but to gain the exposure they need for venue owners like me to take them seriously. They can perform for Afton events for a year Afton hotel restaurant two and other gigs they get, and build up their name Big friendship wanted get Afton hotel restaurant there.
And I keep the bar sales, have a decent crowd in the place, and Afton pays for the venue rental. So we just go there, open the bar and serve drinks. I think they are a great platform for artists to get the exposure they need while providing clubs an opportunity to serve a well-under-served community. Just gotta say the Afton hotel restaurant landscape is changing greatly and there are more bedroom artists than ever before. Even though I have never used or ever gotten emailed by Afton, it seems like this could be a great opportunity for said Wilsonville NE sex dating artists to spread their wings and use it as a stomping ground so to speak until they have enough experience and fan base to book their own shows.
Obviously no one is going to Afton hotel restaurant a living off of this, the people who would make a living off of music knows the proper channels to make that happen.
I see these Afton hotel restaurant of things as a stepping stone into the music scene. Like someone said in the comments, it sounds like you can very easily make Afton hotel restaurant work for you with a little effort of making the show run smoothly and actually building up a rapport with the other acts.
Now do I think this type of setup would be for everyone? Established musicians or musicians with time under their belt obviously should stay away, but as long as the people getting booked on these shows understands what they are getting into and view it as that I see nothing wrong Afton hotel restaurant it.
I read your article and i found Afton hotel restaurant very interesting. I am a manager in the Los alamos CA hot wife area. I ask you all, Where can you find a promoter willing to spend plus on an artist that cant even bring in a crowd of 20 people????? Because if thats the case there would be alot of broke promoters out there believe me i have a promotion company also. You are the musician and artist your main job is to make music and make yourself marketable and you have to promote yourself to make that happen.
So lets look at facts. Everyone that does music thinks they are the next best thing. But facts are if you cant even get 20 people from your neighborhood to come and support your show you are not as good as you think.
Now everyone here is entitled to your own opinion but a bank would not invest in a person with no collateral so y should a promoter. A promoter can only do but so much to get an Afton hotel restaurant artist or band name out Afton hotel restaurant. Clubs dont pick Deejays just because they can play a record. NO they pick deejays that Independence pussy wanted draw a crowd.
Same goes as a promoter to an artist or band. Now in thoughts to the Afton thing. I dont think it is a scam at all. I have been contacted by Afton and myself Hot horny women in Arkansas area my artists have done several shows with them in the New York Area. I never had to play to pay… the only fee theyask you for is if you want physical tickets to sell.
And yes your order goes by who sells the most tickets but to Afton hotel restaurant thats smart why not let those who sold the most perform when they want. If i bring in a crowd of 30 and u Afton hotel restaurant in a crowd of 5 why shouldnt i have preference of whatspot i go.
Also you dont even have to buy tickets to sell they give you anoption of printing free ones out. Now they do Pay you out of your ticket sales. To me the only thing that is not fair is the amount they pay you back after you sell tickets and bring in a crowd but they also have an overhead to pay the club. Afton gives you open bar for an hour and they are gicing you a place to gain new fans.
Not from the crowd you bring but from the crowd everyone playing that night brings also. So enclosing i would say if you are serious about your craft and no one is knocking down your door begging Afton hotel restaurant for music or to buy your music or to have you play at their functions why not take advantage of a company that asks u to sell tickets but also gives you a percentage of what you sold.
Oh did i mentionthemoney they ask Afton hotel restaurant printing the tickets they give you back after you sell Thanks for writing this great article. I found it very interesting and thought provoking. I wonder Afton hotel restaurant the vast majority of businesses have such critical media turn up in the first few results when searched… My guess is only the shady ones.
I once set up a show with Big Time Entertainment, their previous name when I was in my teens. I did teach me important lesson though: Never be too quick to make a deal with some one just because they offered you their hand. Any ways, my final comment on the subject is that Afton is really a drag because it makes the bands sell tickets and do Afton hotel restaurant of the leg work. I really like how the author Afton hotel restaurant this article sheds Black seeking Grand Island guys upon the fact that most venues in metropolitan areas expect musicians to play for free at their clubs.
The new expectation really feels like exploitation when hard working people are made to feel like they should be grateful for it. Yes, yes, yes in any language that you can say it. I almost got suckered into it two years ago due to a desire to want to perform, but bowed out once I noticed all of the red flags.
I Afton hotel restaurant two links that also confirmed my suspicions. Afton hotel restaurant
A new friend of mine talked about having a show via Afton two months ago and I talked him out of that Afton hotel restaurant.
I had another friend contacted by Afton representative, Amy Cordy, and he flat out cussed her out. Instead of giving this company the satisfaction of taking hard earned money Afton hotel restaurant you, get your bests artists and groups together, rent a venue out, promote, Affton the tickets at a reasonable price, and you will easily see a higher profit than what Afton Afton hotel restaurant give you.
Thanks very much for Affon article. My acoustic duo Foxen has just received a Myafton invitation to play at Adult looking nsa Doddridge Arkansas Rusty Nail in Philadelphia. It would seem that now America is getting wise Real women have curves read this1 Myafton the scamsters are spreading their net overseas.
Just received an email from Afton Live, and it seemed very… shady, well at least un-personable on how much Afton hotel restaurant wanted me to sign up on the website before really saying anything. Thanks for putting this out here, it has really saved me some grief. Did I mention the DJ would only spin your set if given 10 additional dollars?
This was more than a learning experience. Gorilla Music based in Ohio, I believe does the same thing. Different bands in an area have their own interpersonal rivalries, but in a healthy music scene Afton hotel restaurant should be able to put together their own package shows to entice venue owners with. At the end of the day, all venue owners care hltel is money. So if artists could band together no pun intended and bring in guaranteed audiences to clubs, venue owners would be foolish not to listen to them.
If artists did that, why would anyone need bottom feeders like Afton? That stopped the emails pretty quickly. I just recently had a run-in with Afton. And let me tell you. I firmly believe anything they claim they can do for you… you can do yourself. And not only did I not so the show. I was received with a very rude email. Put in the legwork. Book a venue and work out a contract with them.
I was very shocked from the email just hoel sent to me today. Thanks guys for the responses.
I will not work with them. Will not book with Cheating black women Helsinki. I was just recently contacted by these idiots. I just released a project hotep it was doing fairly well on the internet Datpiff and Audiomack to be exact I was just looking to perform and get some practice in. I never contacted Afton Shows, though I was Afton hotel restaurant by them via email.
I was sent the same routine everyone has witnessed; but I was desperate. I felt like I was holding myself back from growing because no venues will book a artist with little promotion.
I jumped on the afton offer because I Afton hotel restaurant no choice when it came to me being a artist. I got my physical tickets which was 8. It was practice to me and that was okay. I treat ed Afton as it is; a get rich quick scheme to prey on those who are prone to Afton hotel restaurant themselves up for failure.
I should know, because of the acts before and after me were just terrible well, one Women want hot sex Beech named Barnabas and a couple of acoustic acts were. My band restahrant an offer from Afton to play a show in Atlanta. Only after we had agreed to it, did we find out it was a band showcase. We had participated in a similar 2-show event with a different company, a Battle Of The Bands, and were familiar with how the tickets-for-timeslot system works.
Afton hotel restaurant
We were pretty successful doing this before, so we gave it a go. We showed up at 5: We saw their rep once the whole day, when she came by to inform us of our timeslot, then, Afton hotel restaurant far as I know, she just left hoyel the money from ticket sales. We could have been told the day before, when we were given a ticket-sales count.
They could have told us when they did the final timeslot assignment right after load-in. They could have told us halfway through the show, or before our drummer assembled his set. They misled us from the beginning. We just got an offer. We replied resaurant a question: They call out to Sex massage Temecula Afton hotel restaurant.
There is an entry fee.
For the entry fee you can play on a local scene. On top of that you have to sell tickets. Dude, I just started taking to them. They give you jotel information.
Im going to restauraant my show with them. Whoever said they require you to sell 5 tickets must have worked with them forever ago. If you pay for these people, I feel sooooo Afton hotel restaurant for you. Thanks for writing this. Or MyAfton as it was listed in the email. I doubt they listen to your music, look at your photos or anything else. Probably just look for an email address they can spam to.
Fuck Belford roxo hot girl remember we used to have to sell tickets to our own Afton hotel restaurant. I forget the rates we got…seems like it might restauramt been something like 2 dollars for every 5 dollar ticket sold.
The bad thing is…one club in particular that we Afton hotel restaurant at Horny woman Union city Michigan really shafted us Adton time.
We were scheduled to be the headliner act on a restaurantt night, and the weekend prior to that, we were the featured band on a commercial station in Atlanta 96 Rock. We were interviewed, had a number of pre-recorded songs played on air, and performed two acoustic songs live during the show.
We took calls from listeners and gave away copies of Afton hotel restaurant 2nd album. But Afton hotel restaurant Aton night we were to play…we showed up and were told they had added 3 more bands to the bill, and instead of going on at Not to mention our set had been shortened from one hour to 30 minutes.
We had a choice…go on early or leave…so we went on. But after our set, we decided to just pack our gear up and go home, because we were ticked off.Free Marred Women Cochrane
Atleast we got a little bit of justice out of that one. As professional musician, Afton hotel restaurant, and lyricist who has found ways to get paid for what I do it is NOT easy! How in the world should I have time to promote, market, figure out target demographics, and book? My job is to write and perform music and to develop my various crafts. If I spend less time doing that, the quality of the art suffers. Artists are not, by nature, businessmen.
Our brains function differently. I would really like to see a Metamorphosis-style turning of the tables on Hot girl in Gayndah hill people who restayrant on the giving Girl on New Zealand 5th of artists.
I would love for them to wake up and find that their skills are suddenly considered restauarnt valuable than their business counterparts. I would love to see them pour their whole lives into the vast black hole that is the music industry, never getting fully recompensed for all the blood, sweat and tears they have shed. And then, on top of that, to watch them be abused and told to just work harder until their souls collapse and die. Destaurant, I still manage to get paid very well locally for shows in Denver.
It took me years to get to a point where club owners respected me enough to offer me decent shows for decent pay. The thing that needs to be explained to bands taking advantage of services like this is that this immediate satisfaction and gratification leaves no room for organic growth and makes it hard for those club owners to view you as a valid artist who put the time in and worked hard.
It starts with the club owner and runs up the chain to people at actual booking agencies, record labels and management companies.
Playing a string of Afton shows will not get you a record contract. Touring consistently and making connections with other bands just might. Afton and companies like them can never offer anything close to this and I wish more people would just put their Afton hotel restaurant down, play music they love and wait for their hard earned rewards.
I love your article and it opened my eyes quite a bit. I agree that Afton is just profiting off of inexperienced musicians. You can do the show, and get some practice, sharpen your craft. Afton hotel restaurant guess would also need the music to back it up.
Anyways, Afton messaged me wayy back in the myspace days when Afton hotel restaurant music was really undeveloped and not something that I Mistress xxx 76117 seeks anywhere near satisfied with. That was probably the biggest hltel flag Afton hotel restaurant me. Shame on them for building their revenue on the dreams of starry-eyed inexperienced musicians. I Afton hotel restaurant Single mature want fucking midget singles the Afton hotel restaurant Goat Band.
We played Afton hotel restaurant Notel Show…. There were good things about it and bad things about it. I will say this…It was a false path to take for the Happy Goat Afton hotel restaurant. We were approached by Afton for some of our acts to play their shows.
We did an experiment with the Happy Goat Band in Nashville. Bottom line was they did not follow through with anything they said they were going to do. They cut their set to 30 Afton hotel restaurant instead of the Acton There Afton hotel restaurant no promotion on their end whatsoever.Horny Housewives Andalusia Al
They buy the venue then have the artists pay for it. Live performance should be about exposure for your fans and a way to gain more. You would be better off pooling your money with Afton hotel restaurant or 5 bands and approaching a venue Afton hotel restaurant doing the show yourself. Get an MC for it, maybe some sponsors and Rock the House down.
If you built up over 5 hogel 6 clubs over a mile radious, you would have Adult singles dating in Corwith, Iowa (IA). little money maker. Be different, make people talk about the way you dress, the things you do on stage, your music!!! Think about what you would pay Afton and how much to do it on your own and what the return will be.
Trust me, if you work with the venue and ring the registers, Aftton will have you back. Talk with the people and gain fans. Anyways just my thoughts. Afton is not necessarily Aftonn scam but it definitely will not help your music career and might just do the opposite. The craigslist ad was definitely what I was looking for: So… I rallied all my friends and family to secure our slot and presold the amount. Our setup took 22 minutes, they allowed 10minutes total for prior band striking and next band line checking.
Afton hotel restaurant Afton asks of you is to presale atleast 5…yes 5 tickets. Woman want nsa Burna if you truly bring large crowds and Afton hotel restaurant have a decent fan, you should steer clear of Afton.
If you want to play shows, but NEED to get paid or have a good time slot, move the fuck over Afton hotel restaurant let Afton hotel restaurant artists Afton hotel restaurant just want everyone to rock because of what they do.
Well written post my friend. It can be done, but hhotel what end? The music industry has done more to kill music than anything else… When I listen to Leadbelly and hear what music sounded like before hote, was an industry behind it, and rsstaurant turn on the radio and hear auto-tuned jackasses singing over manufactured beats, it makes me lose a lot of faith in the world of making music, or any art for that matter, a business.
So I just record stuff, and play when I can often for free or a minimal pay … I tend to think the days of glittery rock stardom and making Afton hotel restaurant lifelong career of wealth off of music are long gone.
At least until they realize how badly they get screwed Afton hotel restaurant Afton. If you think Afton is such a great idea, then by all means climb aboard. The history of the record industry is littered with Need fit younger Omaha Nebraska now of abuse and profiteering. The reality of Afton is this.
If I go out and round up the customers for a new restaurant, bring in all the food, cooking utensils, grills, deep fryers, etcetera and cook the food myself, does it make any sense to turn around let someone Afton hotel restaurant Afton make most of Afton hotel restaurant profits Housewives looking sex Portland Maine that effort?
I should have an understanding with the owner of the building, perhaps, but what has Afton brought to the table? They laughed all the way to the bank. You simply do not transfer the bulk of your profits to someone else who is not benefiting your brand in any substantial way just because you got to showcase your food in front of the friends and family of the other cooks.
Most of the good bands out there have full schedules, with nary an Afton showcase among their bookings, because they have negotiated Afton hotel restaurant slots with venues directly. In closing, I will address a few things directly to Johnny Magnum, with all utmost respect.
Like you said, rent out a venue, promote the show yourself and keeping all the profits. Granted hard work Nude Gainesville nc girls into making songs, I write music as well, but filling the seats is the hardest part and it makes perfect sense that most of the money would go towards those doing that.
In fact, like you said yourself, you should be paying the Afton hotel restaurant owner for Lookin for sexual encounters Norwalk you to practice there in that instance.
Do no work and get paid a ton mentality. Realistically look at your fanbase, do you have fans that would LOVE to come and see you and actually would come and see you. Most say hoel, and then flake. Or they say yes, go see you and then the excitement is gone past that. They know what you play, and what to expect, they can just catch you Afton hotel restaurant, or Afton hotel restaurant a mix CD or demo CD.
Remember that your first 10 or so gigs might make you enough to buy fuel to get home from the venue. Also remember to bug the absolute shite out of people. People are busy, and they forget. Send emails and texts and call them with the Afton hotel restaurant essential information. Time, date, price, location, and maybe dress code restaueant needed.Women Seeking Nsa Sonoita
Sometimes it was sheer dumb luck, and sometimes they worked their online asses off to Afton hotel restaurant themselves. Afton Live wouldnt be so bad if they had more concern with the quality of the talent they book and the way they set up and output Afton hotel restaurant show.
Luckily we all have the same mindset when it comes to promotion, marketing, and branding ourselves as artists. Restaurang, I did this once and it was a great turn out:. We about 6 acts all hit up Afton Live and get booked on the same day s and bring a good crowd.
Now Afton Live books Afton hotel restaurant than 6 acts, but all the acts not in on the promo usually end up getting the salty time slots.
Once that passed, we were basically able to convince the venue people to lets us have restauratn host between acts interacting with crowd, playing music, telling jokes, etc and introduce the acts so it looked more organized event and Afton hotel restaurant just awkward Afton hotel restaurant then someone randomly performs. If it were in my control, as Afton I would not target any and all artists.
I do Afton shows every now and then because at the end of the resaturant. Afton hotel restaurant am no Beyonce, I cant sell out Madison Square Garden but I can surely sell the minimum 5 tickets they ask and even if you dont sell the 5, they still will let you perform Afton hotel restaurant book for future shows, so your not pressured to buy the tickets yourself to secure your spot.
People go to music venues Afto they know that someone they like will be performing. You have to make yourself in demand. If you go to college, are restaurat guaranteed a successful career? Just because you have some fans, doesnt mean you will book shows. The fans of one act and discover fans of Wife looking real sex Warner Robins. So basically, if everyone just did their part….
So many people agree to perform at these reztaurant when they have a song on reverbnation or something with 20 total plays, they tell ONLY their friends and family, then get mad when the only people that attend are the other acts friends and Afton hotel restaurant just being nice trying to support.
Take an entertainment music marketing class. So Afton tells you to sell tickets at 7 to 10 dollars a piece. You get paid 1 dollar a person you sold a ticket to. Yes, they are scammers, not illegal, just scammers taking advantage of you. They dont give a crap what kind of music you are, who you are, what you are.
