Ever been working at a venue where the management just does weird crap that makes no sense?
I got to the venue today for what should have been an easy, routine gig. I found out they had a wedding in the venue and tore down the entire PA. They attempted to put it back together without much success. We had to spend two hours re-patching the amps, speakers and checking the rigging. Management was upset but agreed to our labour charge that we added atop our usual fee.
We kind of expect this kind of shenanigans since this venue in particular is owned by a bunch of people who have zero idea what they're doing, but c'mon geez.
Also there were a couple young DJ's who were doing the break and after-show music. They were nice guys but incredibly annoying, which made our job of fixing the PA go a little slower. The one guy decided he was going to start toying with my light console and eventually my audio console. I politely told him not to touch my stuff. He apologized and left the mix booth, but geez. who does that?
No announcement yet.
