Their greedy PROFITEERING shines through!
When COVID19 hit, all of our band’s jobs cancelled. And large assemblies of people were banned by the local/state government. We asked TheBash-Gigmasters to “share the burden” and suspend our account for a couple of months, and let us reinstate with the same account credit later. They refused, saying “you can suspend your account, but will continue to debit your annual membership”. In other words, THEY CONTINUE TO MAKE PROFIT FROM VENDORS DURING THE COVID19 crisis. (By the way, their competitor GigSalad offers this “suspension” feature free, with no hassle to the vendor.)
AVOID “THE BASH” GIGMASTERS!! They are driven only by profits, not quality service. Vendors are at the bottom of the food-chain. They even sent all Vendors a notice, “encouraging” us to refund non-refundable deposits for the cancelled events (which we had already done), “so customers can use it for a future booking”. i.e. TheBash panders to its customers, but Vendors are ignored, and have to pay ALL the burden for the COVID19 crisis!
