(obviously I have some time on my hands during work hrs to post)
I've had a couple of auditions recently that could require me to go on tour nationally/international. I have a day job and with our nations economy sooooo bad right now I have to seriously consider what happens when I come back from a tour and may not be able to find another job or tour again quickly. I do share rent and have a small savings but that can go real fast in Los Angeles county in a year or less. I can see from craigslist ads that most musicians try to teach (which I already do) and just try to get any gig/job they can. It seems really hard out there!
First: How long were you on tour?
Was the pay per day ok or less than you expected?
If you had a day job before you left were you able to return to that job? If no...
Any major problems? Did you really enjoy the band/artist you worked with?
Did you drive or fly to your destinations?
Any other info you'd like to share. Thx ladies.
