I've gotten passed getting insulted when someone I expect to hire me for a gig, doesn't. I decided that people enjoy certain styles of music, and if you don't fit that style; you can't fault them for not hiring you. The thing that DOES stick in my craw, is when an organization will call you to play every Tzedaka job they have, and never hesitate to ask you to play for free (we are a Charity organization and have no budget), which you graciously do...but when they finally have an event where there IS a budget (IE Dinner, concert fundraiser etc.) They hire someone else!?I'm going to share some related stories later in this series.
