So i've been playing at a outdoor mall Its a nice mall, you know.. where rich people shop anyway i had played two free gigs there (actually just finished one today) and i know this lady is going to call me back again. Now when we were first in talks about getting us to play there she told me that once she hears me play that she will let me know if i will be a free musician or paid musician. I havent heard anything back from here but she has told me that they loved us (dont know how entirely true that is) and i know we play well and the audience responds very well. Not only do we attract older people but you actually see young people there LISTENING to us... which is odd at this venue especially when there is jazz involved. Now i think she might be taking advantage because im obviously not experineced enough so i think she is trying to getting away from paying me because of this. So my question for you guys is what is the proper way to ask if i can possible get paid. I dont know how to go about these. would be great to hear from you guys. Let the criticism commence.
