Subject: RE: Gigs (that pay better than coffee houses)

Wow! You have my deepest sympathy. I thought putting up with espresso machines in coffee houses was bad. What you describe sounds like The Gig From Hell on Rollerskates.

All I can say is, not all retirement homes operate that way. The three times my group played those venues, everybody expected us, nothing else was happening, and we were very well received. All I'm saying is, that was a bummer, but they all aren't that way.
