‘Nightmare Gig from Hell’

so, we’re included in this book-   one of our very own ‘nightmare gig from hell’ stories!



What do you say to a naked sheriff?

What song do you play when you’re being robbed at gunpoint?

What happens when a swanky Cabaret performance turns into a virtual vomit-fest?

And when you’re stuck on a frozen, high mountain pass with no way down—who gets eaten first: the drummer or the roadie?

These scenarios, plus many more, told by musicians, artists, and managers—in their own words—make up “Another Nightmare Gig from Hell.”

Presented by Nick Zelinger and Tammy Brackett, “Another Nightmare Gig from Hell” offers up the humorous, sometimes scary, mundane, and downright touching stories of what musicians encounter in the studio, on the road, plying their craft, and enduring another possible “nightmare.”
