Ok, from now on we'll lump "rich old drunk people" in with the "old people response".
Not for me. Though I don't like the rich, cocktail party set, that can be folks in their thirties. No, old folks love the old tunes, and if you play them, you'll know their appreciation. They can be the best audiences, really.

Well yeah, if you're getting paid what you want for it, any gig is great. Still, some audiences just have no appreciation. Like the society lady who comes up on the band stand in the middle of a number to stop the band to make an announcement that could have easily waited another chorus. Tough to enjoy what you're doing when stuff like that happens.

A year ago we played a formal function at a country club and I just felt we didn't get any response from the audience. Then we get hired again for the same event this year; for more money even. Go figure.
