The Changing Face of The Entertainment Industry
In the last few years we’ve seen the music industry go from vinyl records, to cassette tapes, CS’s, down loads and now streaming services. New innovations will move forward into areas we can’t imagine now. In the arena of live performances the territory seems to swing back and forth. Several decades ago the popularity for live bands was at a high. Then  Dj’s came as a less expensive alternative. The club owners embraced it but put the bands out of work. The strong survived but many disappeared. Next the Dj’s were put in competition with entertainment like karaoke, keno, bingo and other forms of active entertainment. Now to the benefit of live bands the popularity has swung in the other direction. On any giving weekend in an area with that supports live bands you’ll find a dozen or more bar & grilles with acts in two or more rooms. You have your choice of low key folk to high energy. Some establishments offer cut rate admission if one purchases four or more tickets at a time. Plus to add to the festivities many places offer a large variety of craft beers. It is interesting to watch the environment change over time.
