I'm going to have like disagree with you here nate. You can make good money playing jazz much more than you will with a rock/punk band. I have the Schedule C forms to prove it. I'm on the board of The Madison Jazz Society and so I am privy to how much we jazz bands get to play jazz society concerts. I will tell you that it is in the thousands of dollars not hundreds.

I'll just ignore that comment because I have been told that you are really a good guy who just appears to be a douchebag on web forums.

I love polka.
