Jam Session

Monday, February 6, 2017

A few of us old timers used to get together and pick a few tunes about once or twice a month at a local restaurant here in the San Antonio TX area. We are told by the manager of this establishment that we were no longer allowed to do this due to the entertainment tax that they would be required to pay. Is this just in our area or is it nation wide? We just did this for fun and were never paid anything. Would like to hear from anyone about this tax. .
