Long story short: one of the bands I'm in had a good gig booked for this summer. Private event, in town, don't know exactly what it was paying but I expect it would have been at least $250 a man plus dinner. It's been on the books for months, maybe even a year. Well my LG just realized the date of the gig fell on his anniversary so he called the BL to say he couldn't do it. But rather than go ahead and keep the gig with a sub LG (who we've used before and did a good job), the BL cancelled the gig. Well, he *sorta* cancelled it. He has a second project which he had booked as the opening act for this same event... so now apparently this project is just going to cover the whole night. Since the drummer and I aren't a part of this second project, the BL's decision basically means his other project will be getting the money that the drummer and I should have been getting for that night. I don't know if I should be more angry at the LG (who bailed on the gig that was booked a long time ago) or the BL (who took a gig away from the drummer and me just because the LG bailed). I should clarify, this is NOT how this BL typically operates so I'm as much surprised as I am upset. Maybe everything happens for a reason, there's something else I'm supposed to be doing that night and that money will come back to me another way. But right now I'm really p*ssed off.
