    7-11 gig last night. Patriots playing Houston.
    Played one set, then manager says that due to the game
    and crowd turnout band is being canceled because they
    do not want to lose patrons due to the band.
    Getting paid full amount and the Pats won!!!
    Rare night.

    Cool deal!

    I experienced that several times in 1997, 1998, 2002, & 2008 when the Red Wings were in the playoffs and finals for the Stanley Cup. We would play 1/2 of a set before being told to shut it down. I guess we were lucky, because we never had an owner or manager refuse to pay us in full---probably because we spent it all at the bar anyway.
     
  4. Ha! the Pats are a good team but your head coach gives the most exciting interviews ever! We don't ever bet against N.E. We only bet how many words he uses. He and Lurch of the Adams family have a lot in common but would love to have him as our head coach. P/S- I always take the under on the amount of words he uses:laugh:.
