Warning rant ahead: Why is it so hard for people to be honest and upfront about your status? I have 2 situations and I have no idea what's going on now. Situation 1. I have/had been playing in a Latin band which was also going to be a Santana tribute band as well. The singer BL is an old acquaintance and things have been going slowly but seemed ok. The BL asked me to post an ad on CL for an additional member to fill out the lineup so I did. We had set up Wednesday and Fridays at a local rehearsal studio. Rehearsal was cancelled at the last minute last Friday and haven't heard from anyone since. The drummer who is new called me yesterday wondering what was going on he was at the studio already I said I hadn't heard anything. Made some calls and no response. Today I was posting some ads on CL for some gear and renewed the ad I posted and happened to notice another ad for a Santana tribute band looking for a bass player. Didn't give any contact info on the ad but I'm assuming it's to replace me. Given the other's silence and not returning several messages it's all I can assume. Situation 2. I just missed out on a great gig before I left Texas a few weeks ago. They had hired someone already before I heard about it I said please keep me in mind if something happens. Heard from them a couple of weeks ago and they said there was an opening and would I be interested and I said I sure would! It would be a traveling cover band based in Austin that also did originals which was perfect. They knew of me from my previous gig so I wasn't a stranger. Only issue is I would have to figure out how to get to Austin from Florida I'm pretty busted out for cash and sold my car a while ago. They said they could probably work on the transportation issue. I've called several times and have not really gotten any response. At this point I'd walk to there for this gig but I need to know if I'm in or not. I just wanna have a steady gig and make some money is that too much to ask for? Sorry for the rant just frustrated not knowing what's going on.
