Re: “Cut the Music, Bring the Noise at the Solano Stroll

I am disgusted once again to see that musicians are not respected in their profession, particularly in this country.
People like Carol Denny who have the guts to stand up for what is right should be commended.
The musicians should have been told before applying that they would not be paid. It is reprehensible that they were not told.
Cuts should have been across the board. Not just the musicians. Thinking that musicians as so desperate to play that they should play for free makes me sick.
Saying that they "gain exposure" for future gigs is just bull.
That band that plays for free hoping to get other jobs should be named
"The Bend Over Band"
They could have a least paid a stipend to each musician.
The Solano Stroll has become over-crowded and lots of people benefit in profits.
Everyone eats and pays for food.
The musicians have expenses such as gas and parking, not to mention all the hours of rehearsals that are unpaid.
I live in Napa and have come to this event every year.
I am boycotting the event this year. Musicians DO deserve to get paid.
I wish the other musician would have the strength to stick up for each other and walk away from this event. Without the music it would be a sad event indeed.
