Re: “Rick West Theater

I played in the band for a short time in 2011. I heard the promises that if I stuck with him, things would take off and I'd be rewarded handsomely. Naturally, I never saw a dime. He even charged me full price for my GF at the time to see the show. Oh, the stories I could tell of how the "star" was the most unprofessional, least talented of the bunch. But I'll leave you with one anecdote that convinced me it was time to move on.

At the time, I was living 65 miles from Independence. I drove round trip each Thursday for practice and each Saturday for the big show. That's 260 miles each week. A few times, I showed up for practice only to find out it had been canceled and "I thought I told so-n-so to call you." Plus, he was talking of adding a dance night on Friday which would bump me up to nearly 400 miles a week for the chance to play for free. Anyway, Rick's mother was in the hospital and he had the audacity to complain on stage of driving nearly 100 miles that week.

If somehow the band and backup singers I worked with could wrestle the theatre away from Rick, that place could make money.
