this was a chairty event and this band showed to do it
The band didnt have any energy during the performance, many people complained about their tune, tone, and the key they were singing in.
also the band manaher agreed to do this fundraiser in exchange for food, alcohol. sleeping accomadations and whatever the 50/50 raffle brought in. Then at the end of the show a band member approached the event leader and cussed at her, and said they wanted more money and even took money from participants. The event leader offered to help compenstae for the cost of gas since the event was not a big turn out as the area was hit with flood rain the band memebr continued cussing and waving his hands and arms at the event leader (all caught on video too) then the band STOLE the remainding of the alcohol and the the ice tubs that belong to the local resturant. Then the band manager started emailing the event leader and even stated he was going to sue her and put public announcements all over the state.
It was expalined to the band memebr and leader that there NEVER was a promise to how much the 50/50 raffle would bring in that we could only go by what the past rides brought in but they didnt care that it was a flash flood and many many people could not make it but the fact is they agreed to play for the food (which was oVER $1750 the alcohol which they drank more then $200) the sleeping accomadations which was $250) and the 50/50 raffle the event leader paid 1005 of all this out of her own pocket and even offered to at least cover the gas for the band but the one band member just wanted to threaten her, cause a seen to where a police report was even filed
Do NOT hire this band they tried to intimidate, threaten, and take more then what they agreed upon plus they stole items and then after all that they threatened to sue because they didnt raise enough in a 50/50 raffle even though they were immature and wrong they still will not apologize. I also just so everyone knows gave them an opportunity to apologize and return the items they stole BEFORE I wrote anything about their band so I did NOT write this until they refused to do the right thing!
