Booster Shot: Apologetic Alison Hinds explains Montreal cancellation

>> Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Dudes, I hate when this happens, but it happens way too often in this music scene.  Promoters make a set of promises to the artists, and fail to deliver.

Soca Queen Alison Hinds found herself in precisely one of these BS situations this weekend in Montreal.  She was booked to perform in FESTIRAAM 2009 at Montreal's infamous Metropolis concert hall, but the show did not go on as planned.   On her Myspace, Alison posted:

Montreal, QC (April 26, 2009) - Alison Hinds Cancels Performance FESTIRAAM 2009 The soca singer cancelled her performance scheduled for last night, citing “ breach of contract.” In a pre-concert conversation, Ms.Hinds said she had complied with the promoters guidelines and feels sadden that she now has disappointed her fans. Ms. Hinds would like her fans to know she was in fact in Montreal and was awaiting to perform. “I’d like thank all my fans who attended the show and I am sincerely sorry.” She hopes her fans would understand her decision and plans on performing in Montreal very soon

According to her management, when Alison arrived in Montreal with the band, due monies were continuously promised, but never produced. Shame shame shame promoter! You mustn't mess with an artist's food, nor your patrons' money. 

By the way...Alison started her own blog today.  You can check it out HERE

Love and soca,
