These guys play good, but are not worth the money they ask.  Do not hire them, as you will loose money.  You are better off getting a regular bar band.  My son held a Lance Armstrong cancer benefit concert at a college with an enrollment of 15,000 students and ended up losing $6000 because only 100 people showed up.  So much for benefitting the cure for cancer.  They would not renegotiate one penny.  They took the money and ran.  We even tried to cancel the concert when it loked certain that these guys were not going to draw squat and they still wanted every dime.  All I can say is do not hire them, do not hire them, do not hire them.  If you do, make sure that they only get a percentage of the profits or, you guessed it, you will loose money.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Nobody was "ripped off" here

AUTHOR: Ryan C - (United States of America)

I am the head of The DMTB, who performed at your event years ago.  I just came across this report and felt I needed to file a rebuttal to this.

Our booking agency is told how much money the band needs to make.  They go and find the band shows for the amount we tell them we need to make.  A client guarantees a certain amount of money to the band and the band then sets a budget.

We had a signed contract guaranteeing us a set amount of money.  In return we were to perform a concert at your event.  We fulfilled our end, and you fulfilled your end and the contract was fulfilled.

But then you file a report saying you lost money on an event and its the band's fault?  So much so that we should have a ripoff report on file in the public domain??

I am sorry that the event lost money but why is it our fault?  Why is it our obligation to "renegotiate" our contract after the event flopped?  If the event was a huge success and 10,000 people showed up would it be fair if we filed a ripoff report saying that you guys refused to "renegotiate" and pay us more money??  No.  And it isn't fair to claim that we ripped you off by because we simply did our job.
