What a nightmare!
A case study in how not to book a band. Since it is fairly lengthy and drawn out, the threads have been broken down to highlight each stage of the negotiations. Below is a breakdown of the 18 negotiation email threads. Click on each heading in the contents to quickly jump to a stage. Please note since some threads happened simultaneously, these are arranged on separate tabs to present this more clearly and chronologically. Please also note that the spelling has been corrected in some cases, but typos have been left in for effect.
