I auditioned and was invited to play with a funk band from New Orleans (Soda Popinski) for their summer tour a couple weeks ago. I was really excited. We were to play 4-5 gigs a week at $500 per gig in Louisiana, Texas, Colorado, and Missouri. Tonite I found out that our booking agent had been lying to us and that we had no scheduled gigs, after two weeks of serious practice and rehearsal. This was the biggest professional oppurtunity I've ever had, as well as the biggest dissapointment. The guitarist and drummer dropped out when they heard the news. So I'm going home to New York to woodshed, oh well. Anyone had similar experiences?
