Re: “New music from A Fragile Tomorrow

I would like to Thank Eddie for having my sons' band, A Fragile Tomorrow, play at such a worthy event and I'm glad they were able to help the Pugh family during this difficult time. I feel it's necessary, yet unfortunate to have to address the first post.
We arrived around 6:40 for sound checks that were allotted from 7-8:30. In that kind of setting,Eddie prefers to have all the bands share a backline to cut down on changeout times. Your band was not there, so Flood Empty Lakes used their kit as the one to share. When we arrived at the Windjammer, they were setting up a lighting system and it took an hour and a half to set up. Then, they had to set up monitors and THEN we did soundcheck.We did not start soundchecking until almost 9. As you may(or may not) know, the sound engineer determined that it was going to be festival style and he was doing only one soundcheck. They being the first band to perform, was checked. Guitar swaps during our set would only cut down on the amount of playing time for them, they still have to stay within the parameters of their set time(50 min). As soon as their set was done, we quickly moved our gear off the stage and out of the venue. We actually, for your information, they only played for about 50 minutes. Originally, we were told we had an hour set. They cut two songs from our set in order to keep a fair time for you guys and Flood Empty Lakes.
They know what it's like to play to small crowds, and have done it many
times, it is what it is sometimes. It's unfortunate for you guys having a
shorter and later set, but that was not their fault.
I would like to say that I'm insulted that you would make it sound like we weren't there for the cause, when we were IN FACT there to support Dave. My own wife is battling cancer, so the cause hits home rather hard for us.
I find it rather unprofessional to bash another band on the internet, where anybody can see it. They pride themselves on being professional and team players. They have that reputation. That kind of selfish behavior that you describe, is not what they are about. A Fragile Tomorrow has been a band for over six years and don't operate that way. If they did, they wouldn't have had the success they've had.
