ToulouseCruise Band Etiquette Question - Am I a prat? (69* d) RE: Band Etiquette Question - Am I a prat? 22 Mar 05

UK Ted... I think you were able to take a bad situation and make it into an okay-but-not-great situation. You looked after the priority, which was making sure a replacement act that was capable of pulling off the night was available when the melodeon player booked off. It just so happened that it was you.

But from now on, you have to have a plan if the situation comes up. I am in a duo, and both of us know that if one has to cancel that the other will normally try to find someone to assist, or else that we will try to find a replacement act... usually, that still ends up in my hands since I know more performers in the city than he does, but that's besides the point. It's funny... I only sing, he sings and plays guitar. I look after all bookings, website updates, etc, and he looks after the music part of our act... 50/50 split, except for gas money (he usually drives). It seems to have worked out, but mostly because we have had it in place for a while, and we are both clear on our responsibilities.
