So, a couple of weeks ago, I got a response to an ad I had out. Initial email asked if I was still available, and the follow up basically was a repeat of the first, with mention of bands they cover. Bands sounded interesting, and it seemed like the kind of gig that would work for me, so I asked for more info. A week passes, and they finally get back to me, saying they'd like to have me come down for an audition, and if I'm available, they'll send me an audition list and an address. This was Friday. I sent a response saying I'm interested, and to send me the list. They want to audition on Saturday (a week later, essentially). I was hoping for taht week to get the audition material down - maybe I over-prepare, but it gives me more confidence. Still no response back from them, though, with the audition list. At what point would you decide the guys are flakes and/or too busy, and that this is shades of things to come - and that ultimately, the gig probably isn't worth it. My concern isn't in learning the material. My concern is centered around a lack of attention to detail, of failing to be timely in communication. I also don't think its unrealistic to hope for a week or so to nail 5-10 songs of which they'll be randomly picking a few to audition on. Maybe because I'm expected to be prompt and thorough in my email communication at work, I have that as a kind of expectation. It seems like common courtesy, to me, though - a week between emails seems a little lengthy to me. I check my email periodically throughout the day, and almost always respond within a day or so. Am I being unrealistic?
