Putting a price on music…thought #2

April 12, 2011

I just went to see Dr. Lonnie Smith. If you have yet to hear this man’s recordings, start today.

The ticket price for this concert was sort of up there. Life at the moment is charmed and I got in for what I thought was a good price. However, it brought to my attention that there are music lovers in this world who would enjoy the music no matter what the cost. I changed my mind when a few people left after the first set. My goodness it was Dr. Lonnie Smith!!

What motivates people to spend money on music as a form of entertainment? How much is too much? What factors tie into this phenomena? Before I get started on another dissertation it would be interesting to hear from some of you, the readers.
