Packed all my gear and drove down to Oceanside. The club said that we can't pay you tonight because we are having financial problems. The rest of the band members gave the manager the high 5. I said lets just do it for free but the manager said no way. Said we play too loud anyways. But the last few gigs we had there everyone was up and dancing. Oh well.
@MGN,,,so what was the outcome, did you play for nothing that night ? Maybe by him telling you they couldn't afford paying was his chicken s--- way of letting you go.
I can appreciate the being too loud part in one sense because when I go to a place / bar that has music, I like being able to talk with the person at the table with me and not having to lip read or keep saying,, huh, what did you say, I didn't hear you.
But that's just me, i'm old.
Of course, it never occured to the manager to call you guys instead of waiting for you to show up with all your gear...
I agree on the loudness, volume can be turned down lol. He is stupid dancing customers = drinking customers and people that will tell others they had a great time etc. Good pub for your band and the club.
I also prefer when the speakers are not turned high, I like dancing but I like a good conversation with friends when I go out. I think anyway that loud music makes you miss the quality of the songs and instruments... and is no good for your ears anyway (yeah many morning waking up with that high pitch still ringing in my ears).

People go out to places just because a particular band happens to be there. If in the past you drew a crowd then it goes to figure that the crowd will only continue to grow each time you play. I would suspect he had another band coming to play for less money in which case he should be sued. I am not a proponent of suing but it's get me mad when people do this sort of thing. I have had the same type of thing happen to me where I drove for quite some distance to repair a piece of equipment only to be told when I got there they didn't want to get it repaired now, then to see the dozer operating later on.
