So it starts of great. Band set up and sound checked early in the afternoon. We show up around 9 to start playing at 10. Band all dressed sharp with ties and all (very unusual and we got quite a few comments on we should do this in the future). The room was set up funnny in that there were only 4 smal 2 person tables with chairs in a room that would seat 70 people. First set the crowd is loving the band, folks are coming from anothe room where a DJ was set up to party with us. They began asking the staff for chairs. The staff replies no, they can not have chairs. When people protested they were told , "thats the way it is , if you dont like it , leave". HUH? That led one patron to get a little loud and the band was told to make her leave of the cops would be called. Is that our job/ anyway she left and then.... The band was told we were to stop at 12:30. we would be paid but we will never be back there again. So somehow this is our fault? its not like they pay all that well anyway, but how does the band take the hit for this? The room was packed, people were drinking, dancing and having fun. they didnt want to stop. How is this a good business?
No announcement yet.
