Local Bar in Brighton putting the screws to local bands

The Highnoon Saloon in Brighton TN is quickly becoming known for being crooked and dishonest in business dealings with local bands. All bands should know that the business arrangements before a show change by the end of the night and no matter how many people you bring or how much beer they sell, at the end of the night you get paid what they want you to have. Imagine driving 20 miles to see a band and paying your cover charge for the band just to find out the establishment screwed the band out of it and put that tax free money in their pocket. Guess that is what it takes for them to stay in business.

I don't drink or know much about that establishment other than it is where the old Baker's restaurant and Hazel's Lounge used to be. (Loved Baker's when I was a kid). My question is are you someone who plays in a band and feel you got rooked there or are you going by heresay. I would say they aren't going to stay in business very long if that is the case.
