    Sort of like calling a women’s prison a “penal” colony.

    Talk about a gut punch. The frikin promoter calls yesterday and tells the band leader. They decided not to have us over scheduling conflicts. Now we have a signed contract on this gig. Her reply was basically to sue them. Oh and she offered us free tickets. Man talk about bummed out. I had checked going on the event and yesterday after talking to Sonny the bandleader...I get an update that we got replace by a GD DJ! Blues men just can’t catch a break! Sonny is going to sue them for the principal of it all ....we had been promoting this show on FB and me on here of course. It’s really embarrassing and just down right dirty of them to this to us. Now I have to let several friends know about this. I really have no words other than the music biz sucks. Hopefully the weather forecast is right and they get that 70% rain. I did manage to pick up a local bar gig that night. But man we were so looking forward to this. I even bought some new duds and retubed my Vibroking. Sorry fellas.

    Too bad you couldn’t use whatever connection you have with Billy to set it straight. I can’t imagine him wanting to share the stage with a DJ.

    I can’t imagine the ZZ crowd enjoying a DJ.
