So basically my fiance's band went to play there tonight, but his band is underage (range from 18-20 years of age), so I didn't understand why they would schedule a band of underage musicians to play in such a strict place if they wouldn't let anyone else underage see them. I was not allowed inside. So I was pretty pissed about that, wasting my gas to get out there.
From what he informed me from his side, their experience was horrible as well. A band before them took too long during their performance so it bled into their time slot. And about 2-3 times before they actually performed, the guy in charge of setting the band up was telling them they weren't going to let them perform, after having phone conversations about setting up everything, knowing the circumstances. Then they were forced to wait outside while the band before them played. They didn't even let them open their water bottles inside when they were done. Performers perspire.. how can you not be allowed to drink water? Then the guy told them they would provide a drum set for them, but when my fiance's band went inside, nothing was set up. So they took more time to have to set that up. When they were ready to do a mic check, the guy went somewhere to make a phone call and wasted more time before starting. And to top it all off, some of the band members tried to tell the guy to turn up the monitors because none of them could hear each other, and he didn't. As a result, their performance wasn't what they were expecting. You have to know there's an issue if your band members cannot hear the drummer and vice versa. Then shortly after the performance, they kicked them out because of the age dealy.
So for you 21+ folk, this might be an alright place for you to chill, but for underage performers who somehow are allowed to be scheduled to play at a BAR...expect disrespect and unorganization. They shouldn't had allowed their band to play in the first place if they were going to make such a big deal about it the night of. And if they were so upset about it, they shouldn't have treated them like crap.
Cons: Failure of Preparation and Unorganized
