Pay to Play?

Dear HRM bar owners, some of us have years of experience and a following. Some of us have spent countless hours honing our craft. Of course you'd rather pay nothing to have live music in your bar—it's a profit thing, we get it. But most of us expect to make at least enough cash to pay our bar tab when we share our music and bring people to your establishment to hear us play. Please don't offer me the equivalent of minimum wage for the "privilege" of playing in your bar when I can back up my talent with significantly more money in your coffers. It's insulting. —Frustrated Musician
