I have a gig on Friday in central Oregon, and I'll be traveling from the Portland area. It's normally a 3- to 3.5-hour trip in good weather conditions, however, there is snow over the pass, so I'm expecting probably 5 hours travel time. The place we're playing at is a Veterans of Foreign Wars post, where the local social club puts on dances. To say that it pays a lot is a stretch. I'm of the mindset that gigs can be good or bad, pay little or pay a lot, and you take it as you can. I've enjoyed playing low-paying gigs in bad conditions, and I've had very little enjoyment for some high-paying, great conditions, so I know there isn't always a correlation. So, question is: what is your commitment level? Do you always do the gig, no matter the weather conditions? Or at what point do you say, "no thank you?"
