    Hi Richard -- on Mar 19 2011 at 22:37, you wrote:

    A lady called the Los Angeles musicians union to inquire about the
    cost of booking a five piece band with a singer for a wedding... The
    AFM rep says "Off the top of my head, roughly two thousand
    She says "WHAT ? FOR MUSIC ?"...
    The rep responds "Ma'am... I'll tell you what. Call the plumbers'
    union and ask for six plumbers to work from six to twelve o'clock on
    a Saturday night. Whatever they charge you, I'll work for half of
    that." She called back and said "I get your point".

    Wonderful -- so true!! I can't tell you how many times I've had a similar conversation with folks wanting to hire my band! :-)

    Cheers... Dallas
