At times we get requests from Duty Managers that you might disagree with. The Duty Manager is the person ultimately responsible for the people in the venue. Whilst the request may seem strange usually there are good and legitimate reasons for it. Ignoring a request made by the Duty Manager may result in a negative report and jeopardise further bookings in the venue. This is a very common cause for acts not getting rebooked by a venue, repeat bookings at a venue grows a regular work base for the band.
