  • RAIN . . .

    Fathers Day trio gig at an oyster bar. It's converted gas station - picnic table with umbrellas and a stage tent set up in front of one of the bays. Oddly enough, I haven't played a lot of outdoor gigs and I'm wondering what sort of rainout policy to expect. 50% chance all day . . .

    Have you asked the owner or booking agent what the policy or backup plan is in the event of rain? I'd start there...

      I did, but haven't heard back.

      I'm finding that a lot of venues are new to all this, so this may not have happened to them yet.

        You have to start with what's safe... if you're going to be outside in the rain with amps and PA equipment, that's not safe... unless the tents are big enough to realistically keep you and all the gear dry...

        I doubt many people will want to stand in the rain and eat / listen to music either...

          When I ask two guys to play a gig with me - both for the first time - they might want to know if they're going to get paid. So the question really is more like what is your cancellation policy?

            She just responded to my email:

            "We have a very large tent, so unless it is torrential and crazy, we plan on still having you all!!

            "
