The promoter didn’t pay. So this band tracked him down right to his house.

When a promoter welches on paying a band, most groups chalk it up to experience, bad luck, or something to do with karma. Not Green Jellÿ. They don’t let it slide. They get their money.

As reported by Metal Injection, Green Jellÿ played a gig on November 7 at Old East 765 in London, Ontario. When it appeared that a promoter named Marcus was going to stiff them, the band went to collect. To his house.

The good news is that Green Jellÿ got their money–half of it, anyway. They also have a handshake deal with the promoter to return to play a proper gig–and they’ll be paid in advance.
