A comment in another thread got me thinking of this.. What is the oddest/weirdest/most outlandish reason your band ever got fired from a gig? My story is from a tequila bar at a big name casino. It was one of those dream gigs for a rock cover band. Packed house every night, crowd ready to party, good pay... oh and did I mention that they had go-go dancers on stage during your set? Well apparently the one rule the club owner had was "No Classic Rock". He wanted modern rock only. No problem, we would just switch out a few songs and away we would go. Anyway, we are playing our gig and the dance floor is packed. That night was a slightly older crowd so my guitar player calls out "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" as an audible. I shoot him a look and say "They said no classic rock". He just shrugs his shoulders and the drummer counts us in. The place goes nuts and the dance floor gets more packed. Guitar player smiles and we continue on with our night. Next day the guitar player gets a phone call from the club. All our dates have been pulled and we are no longer welcome back. Apparently the club owner was in the place that night and heard us play "some classic rock songs" and he didn't like it. The guitar player tried making a case about how the place was packed and people were dancing and enjoying themselves, but they were not hearing it. It sucked because I loved playing there. So what is your story?
