Holy crap you made me remember a gig from 25 years ago that I had forgotten!
Basically it's the same story you have 😆
My first tour ever at age 20 something and we drive from san francisco to Boulder Colorado only to find we weren't even booked at the club. They felt bad for us and gave us a cheese pizza and a pitcher of bud. gee whiz thanks
Oh, that happens all the time. Our response is, "Freeberg. He's the band's lawyer."When someone yells "Freebird"
I used to say, "It's also your responsibility to bring people in."yeah....to that guy I would say:" we will bring as many people as your advertisements for the show got to...."
Thinking back on it, he could have had a gun in his desk.Good on you Commander. Stand up to the people who try and pin bringing in the crowd on the band. It's his place, not yours. He backed down not because he knew you were right, he backed down because you challenged him like a man should. He knew he had no leg to stand on. He's probably not used to musicians attacking him. Good one.
