Are You Just Like Mumford & Sons? Have You Ever Played In Front Of Just 12 People?

Have You Ever Played In Front Of Just 12 People?

One of my artists just sent this email to me.

It’s “normal” to play gigs in front of small crowds…but most artists give up and get discourged when they have only a few fans in the audience….obviously, Mumford & Sons kept going…

“Just got back from Mumford and Sons. They played in St Paul in front of 20,000 people. The main Mumford said one of the greatest lines I’ve heard in a while: ‘Thank you all so much, we were wondering where you all were when we played at the 400 Bar in Minneapolis in 2009 in front of 12 people! It got better, the next time we played the Varsity Theater, the next time First Avenue, and now we’re here!'” -Rex

So, the next time you get discouraged that there “aren’t that many people” at your gig, remember to keep going! If you’re good and keep at it, one day you’ll be playing bigger venues!


Success requires dedication, focus and commitment.

I’ve turned my love, my passion, music, into a full-time job and want to find other artists who are in the same boat.

If you know of an artist who is equally committed, please let me know!

  1. it’s not about how many people are in the crowd, it’s about bringing a great show every time.
