Re: Festival performance cancelled
Kind of like how UIL effectively cancelled all C&SR evaluations after March 15 and yet there will probably be no refunds for those who have entered (which could be a lot of money depending on how many bands your school entered).
Same here. I donít see how the performance company can keep the performance fee if they are unable to uphold their portion of the contract.
So I saw the writing on the wall and cancelled with my travel company early in March, right before many of my friends took their groups to Disney World. Even though we were paid in full, my tour company had only paid deposits for hotels, and buses, so it looks like we'll get almost all of our money back. If they don't go out of business I will DEFINITELY use them again next year.
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!
