I had to call them and cancel the show today, they are mad at me now and I probably wont be able to go there to do shows anymore...oh well.
You did the right thing, I respect you for it. The kiddies here could learn a lot from you.-alex
Wrong Alex, he did the wrong thing. In my 7 years of performing I have missed exactly TWO, count 'em, 2 shows. One when I was in the hospital for an emergency heart surgery and the second when I was in the emergency room due to excessive bleeding. I still had my wife call up a competitor and gave them the job so that no one would be disappointed.
Rocka, once you take money for a show, you are, by definition, a PROFESSIONAL! You have to act like one and accept the responsibility of being a professional. What you did was totally unprofessional so I suggest you stick to free shows for your family until you become grown-up enough to accept the responsibility.
