In August 2012, a lead vocalist withdrew from an engagement. Diaspora Collective closed as a result of this because the way in which the incident was dealt with was considered too lenient and created a negative client situation.
Their final engagement was 6th September 2012. Diáspora + affiliated jazz and world music projects were set to go under new management.
Scroll down to the incident thread to see how the incident was resolved.
Also, it may be of interest to link this post into the Jason @ Book Live thread. The irony is that this engagement (06/09/2012) was via this agency and could have easily created a negative client situation. However, the agent critiques the exact same measures that would have prevent this situation and also similar situations occurring in future.
