Lets just say every band that played in my town/area suffered from the snow that came late afternoon. Including us.
In Some parts of my area the roads were fine but the higher elevations... not so much.Roads were snow covered into the morning hours even though it stopped snowing around 5pm.
We had a typical friday night-like crowd at a place that has been getting light turn outs for the last year or so. Not what we thought the "Biggest Night Of The Year" would look like. But we were not alone. I got reports that other bars we play regularly were dead and A successful local band (20+ years strong) played down the street from us at a catering hall and only about 100 people showed up.
I have a feeling the owners were expecting way more.
I was told many people were uneasy about road conditions and of course police.
