Our 2nd California Trip (Beware of Bobby Soul)

We haven’t added to our blog in a while so I thought I would mention that we had a great time in California. We want to thank Nathan Dias in San Francisco, Ron, Dan and Jeanne in Sacramento and Tom’s Aunt and Uncle Christie & Russ Frandsen near L.A. for putting us up for a night or two.
One great bit of the tour was driving from L.A. to San Francisco on Route One. Such a beautiful drive.
One horrible bit of the tour was being cheated out of money promised to us in writing by the evil Bobby Soul. So I want to warn any band looking to play in the L.A. area DO NOT WORK WITH
BOBBY SOUL
Robert P. Mc Lachlan
TALENT BUYER / VISUAL MARKETING
DJ / BOOGALOO ASSASSINS / AMIGO
For that matter don’t ever perform at
CONTINENTAL ROOM
115 SANTA FE AVE. | FULLERTON, CA. 92832 | SOCO DISTRICT

We know from what happened to us and from talking to the sound man and the manager that Bobby Soul (Robert McLachlan) routinely stiffs the bands out of money they are promised to be paid after they finish playing there.
What happened to us was that they under paid us after the gig and when I pointed this out to the manager he said I had to take it up with Bobby. He also added that this has happened many times. Bobby, of course was no where to be found. I had to repeatedly call him while I refused to leave the manager’s office until this was resolved. Long story short he called me a liar I called him dishonest and the band left.
Later I emailed him the agreement we had and called him again. He said he would mail check to me for the missing balance. That was a month ago and now he is not returning my phone calls or emails.
Spread the word far and wide Robert P. Mc Lachlan is dishonest and should not be trusted. Does anyone out there know the proper agency to complain about this? I don’t think The Better Business Bureau is the proper place.
There I feel better now.

On a happier note we are going to France/Switzerland y’all. In November we will be teaching school children in Bulle Switzerland a little bit about American roots/blues/country/jazz music. Wish us luck.
