My festival performance was not included though, I arranged that (around $1000) with another company that shall remain nameless. When I asked them about cancelling they pointed to the contract and that's that. My question is if I decided, screw it, everybody drive yourself to San Antonio, and we're showing up for this sucker, what would happen? The venue is closed, the judges will be in quarantine wherever they live. I can't imagine they're going to pay the judges anyway to not listen. They're not going to pay to use a venue that isn't available, so why are they keeping my money? You want to take 15% as a commission for your salesman fine, but don't keep all my money if you can't meet YOUR end of the contract!
