NYC's Station pulls into Port Jeffersons LuLus
Station did not disappoint. These guys came to rock and rock they did. Its a shame they were the only band to play tonight. Being a band from NYC and traveling to eastern Long Island. You couldn't expect them to bring a crowd with them. And there sure wasn't a large crowd at LuLus. Which is a shame because this band put on a great show with some killer tunes. It would have been nice to have a local hometown band with a following to help fill the club.
Since LuLu's doesn't seem to have a built in crowd. I have opinions on why that is. Maybe I'll write a 101 book on the basics of building a clientele. I hear quite a few complaints from bar owners. Most of them expect bands to fill their establishment. And they themselves don't look at what they could do to build a clientele. I'll give all these club owners on Long Island and elsewhere a free tip. There's more to it than selling drinks. I wonder how many of them have a business plan written out on paper?
Ok back to the band. I hope to hear more from them in the future. And I wish them well. As they will be opening for Vince Neil (Motley Crue) on January 19 at the Ridgefield Playhouse in CT. I'm betting there will be a good turnout for that show.
