Course Idea: How to Get Paid Guitar Gigs at Local Restaurants

My neighbor is an amazing guitar player and singer. He invited us down to Sliders restaurant on Amelia Island some months ago to watch him perform.

See the recording below:


We had a great time and met many some wonderful folks out there.

Because my brain never shuts off when it comes to figuring out how to monetize something; as he played, I got the idea that he should teach others how to book these local gigs to perform at local bars, restaurants, and other events.

Based on conversations with him, he gets paid quite well to come out and perform for a few hours and he collects tips from people walking up and dropping money in the ‘bucket’.

I thought this was ripe for a great course.

I approached him to do a partnership deal where I’d build the website, handle all the marketing to get folks to the site to buy the course, and help him put together a curriculum, and package it all up.

While he seemed excited by the idea, I couldn’t get him onboard to do it.

I believe a course like this could easily bring in $50,000 – $100,000 a year in revenue.

*TIP: If you feel you don’t have a course inside of you to teach, take a look at your neighbors, friends and relatives and try to determine what skill-sets they have and try to partner with them to create a course just like I tried to do with this guy. Not everyone will say yes, but many will.

I bring this up because if any of you have any musical talents and you perform at local events or restaurants, this is a course you could put together.

Others would love to learn how to do this.

Even if you didn’t want to put a course together, go grab your instruments and hit up some bars and restaurants to see if you can get in their and make yourself some extra cash.

There’s probably a bunch of y’all with some instruments sitting in the basement or garage collecting dust and you could be earning from it.

The other day, while I was in Greenville, SC, I saw a couple of guys rack up a ton of money playing the violin on the sidewalk (play video below):

Believe me when I say these guys were racking it up… Even I managed to throw a few dollars at them.

We later went to go eat some Indian food and when we came out 90 minutes later, they were still there attracting a big crowd and getting paid.

So not only can you hit up the local pub and bars, but you can apparently do very well on side of the road, or at a beach, or probably in the middle of the street!

It’s my goal to show everyone that there’s a course inside of each of us.
