PAYMENT: $150 or more if we sell out the venue!

CHARTS: Please write out your own charts... we're playing the arrangements pretty much on par with the recordings... We will rehearse possible additions to the arrangements as well as segues.

The goal  of this gig is to be an on-going gig that we could tour in the future.  Also thinking of professionally recording Aretha's biggest songs one day and then pressing them on CD to generate more cash at the gig (we'll take care of royalty payment etc to the writers of the songs).
