Just found myself in a situation that I did not expect. The singer/BL in my cover band has decided to quit and take another gig, and he canceled all our existing gigs - without consulting us first. A little backstory...I've been in this band for going on 6 years. We're all great friends, hang out in between gigs, no drama at all. We stay consistently booked with club and corporate work, and I've never really had any complaints. The BL recently got an offer (unbeknownst to us) to go on the road as a hired gun with a local country singer/songwriter that's trying to "make it." BL apparently thinks this could be his ticket to fame and fortune (he's also an aspiring singer/writer), so he took the gig playing in his backup band. He also canceled all of our cover gigs without telling us, and I think that's the part that really irritates me. Me and the remaining guys could have at least tried to find a fill-in singer for the gigs we have coming up, but he didn't even give us the option. We have gigs on the books for as soon as next weekend, but those aren't happening now. I'm not happy. I'm out a good chunk of money, and I rely on music to supply the bulk of my income. Worst of all, I had to find out about this from the guitar player. BL hasn't even called me personally to explain what happened, and in my opinion, that's not acceptable. Anyone ever had anything like this happen?
