Hey, the best clubs need somebody who draws. A bar we (used to)
have featured acoustic music for frat boys on the weekend. It was
always packed. That made enough money to pay allow the club to
have a blues jam, another weekly blues night and bring in national
acts like Little Charlie, James Harman, Carey Bell, Musselwhite,
John Hammond, etc.

This was a tiny little place, and smart booking helped them bring
in the acts they wanted to (of course they closed after forging their
liquor license, but that's another story).
