Alright guys, tonight my band played a Christmas party pay-to-play gig. Overall it was a great night. We got a good time slot, basically filled the room, and rocked it (even with a limited half-hour slot). Apparently we really nailed it, as we were asked for an encore. We had already filled our half hour of music, and still got the go-ahead from the guy orchestrating the event before we began. We played for about another five minutes, and then quickly got off the stage. i was very happy about the result, but what kinda confused me was that he cut the set of the band that followed us. They had to dump one of their songs and were understandably irritated (especially since they had sold more tickets than us). After the show the band was pretty cool about it with us, as we had no idea that their set was going to be shortened. Has anyone on here had any experiences like this, and what was the outcome? Also, how do you treat song selection for your encores? We are a mostly originals band but usually bring out one of our better known covers whenever we get an encore. Tonight it was "Undone (The Sweater song)" by Weezer, although i wanted to play "Are you Gonna be my Girl?" by Jet. Any advice on this topic would be great for future reference.
