  • Fantastic podcast. I really enjoyed it and love your enthusiasm for restaurant work, Christopher!

    Zivi, per your request on paid marketing: Every gig we do is marketing for more of what we do. One specific thing I like to do is cross promote. When I’m at a library gig, I’ll promote my school shows. When I’m at a private party, I’ll promote my library shows because they’re all free to the public. Etc. Etc.

    • Thanks for the comment Annie. The book is yours!

    Great info from Christopher! I’m in UK and restaurant work isn’t as popular but I have one regular pub/restaurant I do once a month and love it!

    • Kim I wonder – is it a paid gig or only for tips?
      Here in Israel there are no restaurant gigs usually but I am considering to change that.

      • kim osullivan

        I do it as a paid gig (but cheaper than my normal rate) people don’t really tip here, although I do get the odd one that tips. I use it really as a marketing tool and to gain party bookings.
