A Live Musician’s World Sonja Mongar Esta Vida Boricua “When I had a band and did music/art/poetry productions–some really big ones – I did everything from booking/publicity to stage managing, to set design to roadie, to picking up garbage after the show and I still had to have the energy to get up on stage to MC some shows and also play with my band. And 99 percent of the time, I didn’t get paid a dime – by the time expenses were deducted. – What always frustrated me was how reluctant people/venues were to pay for our work – Music is work just like any other profession – that goes for any art as well. If you are enjoying the beauty of another person’s passionate creativity – show some gratitude with some green.”
