I just bought another mic for my sound system to do shows out on the streets.
I think if I keep practicing I can have a show that generates enough money each month to pay my rent.
If I played four times a week and can make $50 each time then that would pay my rent as I now have a roommate and my rent has been cut in half. I found a really cool guy to rent my room and he even owns a local business which sells musical equipment. He is a musician himself and plays in clubs around the country and makes a good living from it. I would love to do that one day and cut back on my hours working for the local contractor. I just need to get a little better at the drums and singing and it should all fall into place. I will keep working at the HVAC company for now, doing jobs like a/c repair and heat pump installations. I like working there because it allows me to use my skills in the HVAC field which my dad taught me so long ago. I think I could be good enough with the drumming in two years to where I could play in clubs and totally dedicate my life to playing music. I really like playing the drums and it is even more fun when I can play inside an air conditioned club in the summer instead of on the streets like I have been doing. It can get really hot out there though.
