I've got a big show on Thursday, 3 of the UK's top flight drummers performing and the sound engineer has just mailed me; "Hi Mike, Sorry, stuck in Canada, Can't make the gig!"

Evil or Very Mad

I'm sure I can but frankly, I could do without it since it has been booked with him for 6 months! Day before yesterday, the client was talking of cancelling it, which I said would not be a good idea. Wish I'd kept my big gob shut now.

retrospect is a thing of the past mate..........sorry, i'll get my coat lol

I guess it's a case of seeing where the client is up to now, searching for a sound engineer in the mean time and going from there

So, I spend much of yesterday phoning round, sending mails, posting on the right sites trying to find a sound engineer. Ring the client this morning to explain the situation and what action I've taken only to be told that he'd already told them weeks ago he couldn't do it! They have a replacement but no one bloody told me!!!

Unfortunately, this is typical of the music business.

Well, final itinereary and running order done, sent, awaiting everyone trying to change it....!!

Just realised I have a session in the morning at a studio about 2 miles from the venue, which is nice, 2 lots of travel expenses!! Although having said that, it's only 8 miles from home so I'm unlikely to dine out on it.

Not especially. Just trying to keep busy and find work. I did get booked yesterday to tech a week long drum festival in August '09, just hoping I get WOMAD Festival again the week before. This is assuming I'm still alive by then!
