I've seen it happen time and again in the months I've been working there. For a club that's only open 9-2 most nights (and for bartenders who have only a couple of good nights a week at most), that's a serious financial hamstring.
The KC really needs a house DJ. Someone there every night there are bands to play before the bands, in-between, and after the bands. I bet you could find someone you could pay $50 a night for 5 hours work. The other night of the nervous system show, as you know, all it tooks was a kick ass dance mix to keep people dancing till it was time to kick people out. The question then would be where to pull the moneu to pay the DJ: the door, or the bar? But, ideally, every night would be 3 bands and a DJ.
on a totally different note, Bob, can you drop me a line with a current email? got some art stuff to talk to you about. firstname.lastname@example.org
