Roughyed Why and/or When to Turn Down a Gig (86* d) RE: Why and/or When to Turn Down a Gig 27 May 06


My band played a gig at a club which was not particularly brilliant but the organiser like us and booked us for St Patricks Night which was about nine months away. In the meantime we acquired a really good agent, gigged all over the place and tripled our fee. We were offered another St Patricks night gig for about four times what we were getting from the club but turned it down on the grounds that a gig is a gig and we had effectively given our word.

Anyway St Patrick's night arrived there were about five people in the audience and it was a lousy gig (we were brilliant of course!). It turned out that open warfare had broken out on the committee and we had fallen foul of their internal politics. I still think we were right to do it but it still rankles a bit.
