31 May Nothing ventured nothing gained!
It’s not often that I mention venues but on this occasion I feel I must. The hardest thing to do these days is sell a ticket? I was lucky enough to be booked at a great little venue called the windmill in Buckley North Wales last night, the first time they booked me the gig was cancelled because they couldn’t sell it, so I was apprehensive when the manager Rebecca asked me to do it again. The Windmill, is a cafe bar with a function room above, yet during the day it doubles as a day centre for the elderly, they like everyone else are struggling to fill their venue, yet last night they sold it out. They charged £15 a ticket which included one of the finest buffets I’ve had the pleasure of tasting haha, I never normally eat before a gig but I couldn’t help myself last night, the food was lovely! And to go with that, the people were a great audience and we all had a great time! What I’m getting at though is that we need more people like Rebecca, who are not put off by small set backs, that are struggling like everyone else but are still looking to take a chance and put on top class entertainment for it’s customers! Nothing ventured nothing gained, and when it comes off, then we are all winners because I now have another venue who will use me in the future!
