Interestingly, the replies by people with apparently "real" names seemed to have the most plausible explanations.

Video shows singer hitting microphone against speakers and threatening to fight sound engineer. The comments explain what happened.

Doesn't seem very laissez-fairé.

I like a challenge but to be truthful this gig seems to be blowing up as the date gets closer.
Do not under any circumstances give him a break on your price.  IMO this gig is setting up to be a PITA so getting paid well will ease the pain......

Or, if you're only on hold, get out now.  (If only I had taken that same advice, so many times.. ::) )

THIS. GET OUT NOW WHILE YOU STILL CAN. If you think the advance is bad, just think about what the day of the ceremony will be like.

Of course, just my opinion. Trust your gut instinct. If you do go ahead with the gig make sure it's worth it.

Thanks for the concern guys. You are correct that this is a dumpster fire of a client.  All of my production and rental gigs are 50% deposit and balance due 7 days prior to the event. He's got until Thursday to send me a wire transfer or he can book another provider. It's a good chunk of change and some holiday work for my guys.  I was open that weekend anyway. Client asked for a 7% discount so I told him I'd pull the wireless down to three channels instead. Will see if he books and if not, I'll go snowboarding.

On the up side, the event planner and venue manager both met me and want to do future business, so it's already a win. Also met another local provider (lights and video) who I've spoken to in the past. He's taking that chunk of the production with me doing sound and I'm sure we will work together in the future.

I'm not a DVS user, but am slogging through Catalina on my new Macbook Pro which came with it.  Catalina seems to be Apple's Windows Vista. Part of the misery isn't Apple's fault - it wasn't Apple's fault that more than a year of warning that 32-bit support was going away went unheeded by third-party developers (cough, MOTU). That said, Catalina does truly suck.  I have spent the better part of this evening trying to get a playlist to sync to my phone. The playlist has 30 songs in it on the Mac, on the IPhone it has 20. After two hours of messing around I'm up to 26, and the missing four are all present on the phone.  The new "Music" app is thoroughly garbage. ITunes has been going down hill for the last several versions; this update is a new low.

On the plus side - the 16" MBP is truly awesome. I just wish it didn't force me to Catalina.

This article from The Register about a contractor in Arizona who appears to have gotten in hot water:
