APPALLING TREATMENT OF MUSICIANS. After an excellent show tonight by a local guitarist and a singer from Vancouver, I watched the owner and two other staff pull the musicians into a side room and try for over 15 minutes to avoid paying them the agreed upon rate. As a fellow musician it disgusted me to see how little value they placed on the musicians' work (because that's what it is!!) and the countless hours of practice and preparation it takes to perform professionally. The duet performed a great show deserved far more than what they had to settle for. If you gig at all in this town, steer clear of this place.
