    Are You Earning as Much Per Gig as You Were "Then"?

    anywhere from 150 per person to 1K+ per person, depends on venue. On the low end, Im making about the same as I did in the 80s. On the high end, obviously, things are much better than they were - and usually much nicer (non bar) venues with food/drinks/green rooms/security, etc. F
