Re: Klezical Tradition in Springfield, MA April 19


When I was a young man there was a rule at the Sunday dinner table to restrict 
topics to those
"of general interest". Is the difficulty of one group of musicians finding a 
gig in one venue in New York
a topic of "general interest"?

  Presumably I'm "speaking" with the guy in charge for now: Steve Lurie. Not 
  I send a packet and the first thing that comes back is "Do YOU think you can 
get 50 people there?"  Almost like a dare. You send a CD, full of good reviews 
in the envelope and a decent bio and that's what he says first thing?? They 
needn't approach people that way. After all, you're not getting a king's 
ransom; it's called "da door!"   I' would think there more pleasant ways to get 
a dialogue going.  And it continued downhill from there. Did you hear, Rukhl, 
from this "horse" Steve or do you think it was someone else?
