How far will you travel for a show?


Recommended Posts

The majority of shows for me are local because I live in a Valley. I have done shows as far as 4+ hrs away but the sales were the same or less. There are other factors in doing far away shows so unless I know that it is a big money maker for me I tend to stay local. So I'd say most of them are anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hrs driving time. But 2 hrs driving time is 4 hrs round trip. Thats a lot of gas if its a 2-3 day show.

I have done out of state shows and stayed at a motel and it was a loss for me. So again, unless I know with a lot of certainty that its going to make me some money traveling to far away is just too expensive.

This would all be moot if the economy picked up. I used to make 3-4 times what I make now.

I really do not like to do over 1 hour away but the furthest I have done is 2 hours away! It was one where we had to get up at 2:00 in the morning to be there in time to set up! It was 2 weekends in a row and I always did well but it was just so exhausting! Soooo I will just do 1 hour max from now on! May hat is off to those that travel far though!
