"You are overlooking  another successful type... the hustler.  An example...
during one recent  visit to the French Quarter I saw, in one day, the same
musician play for tips  at Cafe Du Monde during the day, play for the dinner
crowd at The Palm Court,  and then play the night away at Preservation Hall. Good
musicians... especially  hustling musicians... earn a living in NOLA."

THREE gigs in one day?   I have done that to death!  No  more....  I wanna
enjoy life too!
Two is more than enough.  How old was that guy?  Hell five gigs a  week is
enough for me!  I'm not greedy -- I just wanna make a living -- and  I do, but
that's just too hard.  Music should be fun, not a grind.
