Sorry for the rant guys but this is starting to piss me off. I recently moved cities and as I'm sure many of you know its not easy starting from scratch in a new scene. Audition comes around, I pick their material up quickly and efficiently. I provide my schedule that for the most part is pretty concrete. Fast forward a month, practices are going well, I'm taking more of an active hand in the writing process. I have one of the better grasps of harmony in the band so I write bass lines that support vocal harmonys and provide reference points for vocals. They schedule a practice on tuesday night, originally i thought I could make it, however a work related problem came up and I couldnt make the practice. I gave more then 24 hours notice (granted not conveniant but life happens). A week later and i havent heard anything from anybody. I've been practicing and writing for this band for the entire period. On friday i get an e-mail stating that I'm am being kicked out of the band as my schedule doesnt mesh theirs. Sweet, countless hours wasted that I could have been spent woodshedding or working on other projects.
