    Just curious about how many of you had weather related gig cancellations this past weekend. Looks like parts of the Northeast got it pretty bad.

    Did your gig(s) cancel or did the show go on?

    - If it went on, did everyone get there (and home) OK and were there any people at the show?

    - If it got cancelled, how much notice did you get? Are you gonna get a make-up gig and how did you spend the night since you weren't playing?

    Yes it got cancelled. 2 days unofficial notice, 1 day official. It will hopefully be rescheduled but not for months. The cancellation especially sucked because it was a gig for my charity band and we had put in a lot of rehearsal to get the show presentable. Instead of playing the show I stayed home and watched movies w/ my wife, which was nice and relaxing, just not what we'd been working toward.

    Two gigs cancelled, Saturday night, and Sunday evening. I was OK losing Saturday as I didn't much want the gig in the first place (too far for too little $$$). Won't even try to reschedule if I have my way. Sunday was a regular "bread and butter" gig, good pay, two miles from home, and a 9 pm end time (dinner dance). Oh well, there are plenty more gigs coming up as we play the same event every other weekend.
     
  10. We were cancelled for Friday night due to the threat of snow(I thank the media's end of days kinda hype) despite the complete lack of snow. We were rescheduled for march due to the headliners tour schedule.

    That would suck. Well hope you guys kill it on your March gig.

    Sorry to hear about everybody's cancellations,that sucks. Snowmobiling is a big deal up here,so we actually got a couple last minute gigs because of the snow..
     
  13. Thanks, we were not all to upset because we are playing the same place in two weeks due to poor booking. So it kinda worked in out favor. Nothing like over playing the same club two weeks apart. We will be more careful about booking from here on.
