Since I started playing in a covers band I get about the same. I turned down a 200 quid per man gig the other night, also a covers band. Wedding bands can make crazy money and country n'irish can name their price it seems.
They Might Be Giants made a good bit of cash writing original songs about mathematicsCovers band gig playing songs by Abba, Madness, Beatles, and other well-known acts: 200 per musician down to, say, 50 quid per person.
Originals gig playing your songs: 20 quid per person down to zero quid.
Mathematical conclusion: The quality ratio that compares songs by Abba, Madness, Beatles, and other well-known acts to your songs ranges from 10 to infinity.
So, these songs are, at minimum,10 times better than your songs, ranging to infinitely better.
Mathematics is telling you to quit writing songs. Can you argue with mathematics?
