Re: “A musician's case against the $5 cover charge

I gotta say I don't really get this article. Open for assistance. But it seems to me that there is no way to make a "minimum cover charge". That's a thing that doesn't make any sense. this person wants to make a law or something? I completely agree that clubs should pay more to musicians, bottom line. But it's up to the clubs to figure out how to do that. If they get more people in the door by having s free show and are then able to pay musicians off of bar sales, that's their model. If they pay strictly off of draw and attendance, that's their model. Making a minimum cover charge isn't logical. Every single bar and club works differently in the business end so m a bit confused at the aim of this article. I feel like the writing has been on the wall for these concepts for a long time. Imo clubs need to do more promotion themselves, do their job to get people in the door. I've played clubs that are established "places to be" and played a free show, and made a wonderful wage. Because the venue was awesome and people wanted to be there no matter what was happening. And because it was free. And I want to play there because their business model works in a way that pays me well.
