One of our members pointed out the following ad on craigslist:
Need Musicians/Bands to PLAY!!! (McDonald’s at 200 16th St. Denver)
I am looking for musicians or bands to play on our stage at the McDonald’s at 200 16th St. This is a newly built restaurant on the 16th St. Mall in Denver. VERY HIGH profile. I am looking for 11:30-1:30pm M-F and Fri/Sat. evenings from 5-7pm. Compensation is free food and your ability to sell any merch or CD’s. http://denver.craigslist.org/muc/1574621014.html
And a response (apologies for our first post, this is NOT a DMA member):
We work most of our lives in the basement to get out and play we’ve played some great places like Red rocks, Smokin’ Joes, Mr luckys, The draft house and the peoples fair and now you want us to play Mc Donalds for food PLEASE get real is this a joke? just how many hamburgers can you afford to give out cause I can eat a bunch just myself alone…Lol…The million dollar franchise paying in food come on you’ve got the money give it up!!! you’re not going to get anybody but basement bands who couldn’t play if they wanted to! Mc Donalds I’m wondering if I ever want to eat there again? this is one of the worst adds I’ve ever seen and how down grading for you to expect us as pro musicians to get up on your stage to play for food get a grip and pay some of that millions you’ve made over the years!!! We don’t play for food we play for money THAT“S WHY WE DO THIS!!! FOOLS!!! I know we don’t make much money but every little bit counts! PLEASE GET A GRIP!!! http://denver.craigslist.org/muc/1576464477.html
