FINALLY! I get to make a living again.
Well that's not quite true. If I ever make a living in this business it would be a welcomed change!
However, this January has been among the S-L-O-W-E-S-T I have had in years. Ridiculously slow. Like three damned bookings all month slow.
Thankfully I've had some money from 2006 gigs coming in, so I haven't starved. It HAS put a huge delay on the marketing push and some other things I'd intended to do.
Well, today I get to start really working again. Two shows in Oak Lawn today, four hours of strolling at the university of Illinois at Chicago tomorrow, gigs the 7th, 8th, & 9th as well as the 11th...It gets much better this month. Not GREAT, but certainly better.
Here's hoping I can really make some headway and get on a roll here. LOTS of things I need to buy for the business, money for a vacation, and cash for an apartment move are all on the agenda.
