This past Saturdays gig was supposed to be at one of our keyboard players neighborhood bars, he claimed to have known the owner, and booked the gig (he says) three weeks in advance. Anyway, we show up at 6:00pm and start loading in equipment, right away, you could tell something was wrong. There were maybe 10 people in the place plus the bartender, one girl asks "What are you guys doing?" Jim (the keyboard player) says "Were gonna be playing here tonight, why?" She answers "Because MY band is the house band here! they dont book any other bands here!" Everyone stops what they are doing right away and all eyes turn to Jim, I walk up to the bartender and ask who is booked here this weekend, she looks at me like I`m an idiot (I suppose at that moment I was...lol) and points to a calender. Meanwhile, Jim is walking around like he owns the place and telling anyone who will listen what great friends he and the owner are. Sure enough only ONE band was listed throughout the months of November and December and guess what, it aint us Jim freaks out, starts yelling that we were booked there, and demands to speak to the owner, who, of course, isnt there. Anyway, the bartender gets the guy on the phone and explains whats going on, he (the owner) tells her, and me, that he has never heard of our band, has no idea who this Jim guy is, and doesnt appreaciate us tying up his place of business with this crap. Jim has no explanation for all this other than to say he`s embarressed by the whole thing and to laugh it off. I myself dont know what to think. He`s never shown any sign of being this flaky before, so maybe it was just an honest mistake? What do you guys think? Any advice in dealing with this would be greatly appreciated.
