Brothers and sister in bands (and other various musical performers)


Brothers and sister in bands (and other various musical performers). Here’s a hypothetical for you. Imagine a scenario where the band before you turned up late, went on late, and played so long that you only had a 12 minute set.
A crazy idea I know, because no one would ever do that in this day and age. But if they did, what would you like to say to them?
Obviously I’d be too polite to ever complain about it, but I wondered what your thoughts were.

If they’re late enough, can you just offer to go on in their place?

Find the promoter, demand answers. If they were late, why didn’t they play a shorter set? Why am I suffering for being here on time? Is everyone above us having to reduce their sets? If not, why not? Etc.

In honesty, just reading this hypothetical got my blood boiling!

    Oh I’m quite sure that the promoter wouldn’t have been to blame in this instance.

    No, but surely someone other than said band has some control over things like… how long a late band get to play for?

Compliment them on the brilliance of their set and also slash their tyres.

Hypothetically, I would add them on Facebook and upon their acceptance, I would write a passive aggressive post describing their actions as a hypothetical scenario.

For being late? Well, if they have jobs that restrict their availability, and if they have to travel to and find the venue, and if said venue is in a rats maze that its hard to get near cuz of road works and closures, then I’d not berate them for that…

    Oh I can totally see that old boy. And it’s nice to hear it put in such an agreeable manner! These things do occur, and quite often can’t be helped.

    We’re all in it together, we have no ego problem through being told of such situations if they are gonna occur.
    No one means to tread on anyone’s toes..

(Hypothetically) Everyone has work and venues are all different. It depends on how many different varieties of venues a band insists on being late at and and if there are bands before you, the rudeness of turning up during their set aswell and having n…

I don’t know of any bands that “insist” on being late..

    Insist isn’t the word if it’s going to be taken literally. I just mean if a band is known for turning up whilst other bands are playing etc. For me half the fun of a gig is playing and half is watching the other bands. I didn’t know you were in Demob by the way. Andy had one of my old band’s tshirts at one point (the commies)

    I think the whole idea that a band turning up late being “rude” is a bit prissy.
    I’ve been playing gigs for 35+ years and I don’t give a rats arse if a band arrives during my performance or even misses it entirely.. Who the fuck cares? I’m too busy performing..plus I have no idea why they’re late..
    Rude…..
