Wow, twenty lasers.
Stuff happens. No one is immune from unexpected incidents and I would expect that the guy throwing the party could appreciate that. And I would be willing to bet if the shoe was on the other foot he would do the same.
We cancelled one recently. Only time ever.
Played a venue that had major security and drug issues. We played well despite the out of control drunks and out of it thugs molesting the girls in the band and getting on stage trying to kick off a fight.
We became ‘unavailable’ for the follow up.
You will hit a line occasionally.
I cancelled a gig once. We were supposed to play on a tennis court in the rain for free. Not worth putting me or my equipment at risk.
a net loss... you left them at love! the lost service... hey, is this thing on? hello?
It would've been an awful racquet if they'd played in the rain.
Meanwhile in Finland...
TODAY SPECIAL KARAOKE
((Bass player got thrashed))
Thank you for clarifying that you aren't bragging
in the words of the great satchel paige... if you can do it, it ain't braggin!
If you can do it, boasting is the same as bragging. If you can't do it, it's just lying.
I'm guessing you haven't heard of satchel paige.
IMHO house hit by lightning trumps a gig.
Man. I'm not bragging at all. I coach voice not because Im good at voice, but because I know how soul-consuming it can be to WANT to sing well but not be able to.
But I've put nearly 3 decades of singing in. Still not a master in the slightest; just good enough not to be slagged for being a karaoke guy merely because bands are better.
If its a good band, then yes, it IS better than most karaoke. But most bands are worse than karaoke backing tracks.
They’ll get over it.
I’ve had to cancel 2 gigs that I can remember. One was right after Katrina and 500 miles away. Quite literally, I couldn’t guarantee I’d make it—in Georgia, most gas stations were dry.
Sure blame the man with the red hat.
It was a word before that fellow.
I've talked my way out of many.
Weddings, where I warned up front that I don't know how to do any of that father of the bride dances with the step-cousin-in-law of the grooms mother crap.
Nor do we do requests...we do what we do. If you want it, we bring it.
The ones I've most talked myself out of are the parties for the 20-something's birthday (or some such event) where the parents are doing the hiring.
"Look...I'd love to come play your maneuver...and I know you and your 40 and 50-something friends will dig us...but think about who the party is actually FOR."
In a day or 2, I get the call to bail out.
After awhile, you learn to spot 'em from the get-go and avoid the embarrassment of having to bail.
