HELP! Midgets in band. Wife says I'm exploiting them.

Hi guys,

I've got myself in quite a pickle and I need your advice. Up until around December last year I had been performing solo at local clubs and bars, but with little to no success. Honestly, i think no one just wanted to see me, and that's fair enough, it takes time, I can handle it.

At my wifes works xmas party however I met a fellow guitarist and his wife who is a very good singer. So we got talkin, played a bit and earlier this month the 3 of us did a gig together. There was a huge crowd and we even got a review in the local rag, a very good one. It was great.

Well thats just wonderful your probably saying... well wait, this couple are midgets. But let me stress that doesn't bother me at all! I couldn't care less how tall or in this case small they are. BUT The problem I have exists because of my wife. She says the only reason people are showing up is because of the midgets. Not to see me. She has accused me of exploiting them. I don't believe I am!

She said the fact I called the band "Santa's Rejects" is extremely offensive. However, this was a band choice and we all felt it fitted with our heavy image. Even still, she says I need to grow up.

Am I really being a jerk? What do you guys think? Ditch the band?

What she would dislike most (IMHO) is the suggestion that she should stay at home and not subject herself to exploitation.
