Blues societies = blues nazis???

Conflict Of interest Most certainly is Some just don't get caught I have
heard about blues society's members not calling any name's yet Pocketing
money( or Collateral. like Mobil homes Car's Etc donated to them for non
profit) from the society and making under the table deal's like I give your
band Two hundred and fifty dollars and I keep A hundred Etc, for finders fee
or they make the deal with the Club owner they book you in
Some society operate like a groupie or fan club other than Doing thing's
professional. Female Volunteers are there just to get all the drug's and sex
partying they can do.The same with Some of the Guy's I have known for a long
time The state of some blues society's in in a bad way.
This thread have been going on a few days seem like most are not telling it
like most know it is I know most Blues societies mean well and do a good
job and are serious and honest people When you get bad people in office you
have to get them out before they destroy the blues and the area music
scene.You or we don't need no control freaks trying to run anything.!
