Since commercial clubs have high expenses and need to
make a profit in order to stay open and continue playing lots of salsa, they
will therefore cater to the customers who spend the most money at the bar. Mambo
dancers can help get what they want by spending more money for drinks at the bar, even if
it's sodas, fruit juices, virgin cocktails, water, sports drinks. You may
think you're smart by not buying anything at a club, or sneaking in a bottle of
water or liquor, but actually you are
pushing them to cater to other customers who will spend more at the bar.
Those are the customers who want to hear other kinds of music instead of
salsa. If you want commercial
clubs to feature more salsa nights, you have to pay for it by purchasing
beverages at the bar. This is just simple economics.
