Just curious what you make of this. I booked gigs over the holidays for my jazz trio, but lost my guitarist. Found a pro guitarist immediately, and had about 8 gigs for him at the going rate. Got his picture, gave a write-up on my website. And then a few days later he writes and says we need to talk. We set a time, he doesn't show for the call....I call and text and email to see what he wants -- fearing lack of availability. Finally, send a text indicating I need to know what is going on as I have gigs booked. He doesn't answer...later I get a text "Find another guitar player". I scroll through the emails, and find that on the night we talked, he said he had conflict with one of the dates, and was way to busy for the other gigs. I then text and apologize for sending texts asking for a convo as I just saw the text explaining his resignation. I ask if he wants to be called as an occasional sub, and he doesn't answer. Comments? Is this just a busy musician who found a better deal? Or just a callous person whose not interested in relationships? Seems pretty crass to me.
