1 Rob Williams 12 months ago Me having a bleat.There's a venue we played at last year that paid us ok (not good, but not our worst) except there was a lot of travel (so at the end not much money). ...and management really didn't give a stuff - just get in there and play. But not too loud. You know the drill. Anyway they did give us some regular dates. They don't offer any gratuity or hospitality, and it usually takes 2 weeks and 3 phone calls to have our invoice paid.Anyhoo, in December I started trying to get dates for 2015. 3 Months later after emails, calls, facebook messages I post on my bands facebook page to explain to our followers who go to this venue that we ARE trying to come back but 'getting run around' re dates (that's virtually what I said -no malice or nutin'). Well, today I get a most irate email from the booking person saying how I've hurt her feelings and damaged her credibility with other bands (WTF?) etc etc. I apologised for any offence and did my best to mend the bridge while get my point across that being 'on hold' for 3 months can get frustrating. I don't think I did anything offensive or wrong but I've obviously upset her tiara. Not sure what to do now. I hate pandering to this type but I like regular gigs...but the place really does operate on a junior high school mentality.... what to do....?
