Re: “Cover bands — making money off those with talent

Yep! I agree with all of this.

The worst thing is the audience or the fans who associate the stolen song with the performer.

It gets complicated too... Some artists are not cover artists yet they sing songs written by others.

If a cover version is an improvement, then it's difficult to criticise.

Re: “Singer/songwriter Rick Spreitzer Wants to Know Where the Scene Lives

Its so hard to engage audiences that dont have the manners to shut up, put down their phones and listen. Its also disheartening for the musicians. No one is taught to do that anymore. Everybody thinks musicians are at a venue as background music - many times because local music is presented that way by the room and out of habit and has become a local practice by the musicians themselves. Some people listen and enjoy. Most dont. Many times the only people listening are fellow musicians that came out to support their friend. Their is some great musicianship happening all around Charlotte and people are ignoring it. There is money to be made if some venues would figure out that people will come out for an evening of great songwriting and performances- if it is presented as a listing experience. A concert. Not just these folks are here playing while you eat and drink. I would love to see venues turn off the TVs during the music, and teach the audience to have manners, shut up, put down the phone, and listen. Its working for Summit Coffee and OTPH.

Re: “Singer/songwriter Rick Spreitzer Wants to Know Where the Scene Lives

Nicely said Rick! Yes- we need more support from groups like the Folk Society and NSAI etc.. Catawba Coffee in Mt. Holly is a small template for what could be- and should be possible in Charlotte. Id also like to give a shout out to the small- but growing scene at Summit Coffee in Davidson and Old Town Public House (OTPH) in Cornelius.

Re: “Nightlife profile: Shawn Shrader

Shawn - received a coupon in the mail for a haircut for first time client. I made an appointment at your Mooresville location for 3:30pm on 8/1/18
The haircut I received was not at all acceptable. Your stylist was not outgoing or friendly. Very disappointed and would like to hair from you regarding this. Reply to this comment with a way to get a hold of you. Thanks

They say music has a spiritual connection to a higher source that's universal and once you have that foundation all things are possible. Stay true to who you are, you are created in the image of Ancient of Days.Loyal Love is his greatest Quality!
