Made reservation as suggested. They did not honor it. Got there at 7pm when our reservation was for and they had give N our table away and Andy, Nathan sprung these sessions on me at the last minute, just as we were looking forward to our break. Professional sessions are not routinely handled in such an ad hoc manner. This is extremely disrespectful to us. I ask myself why so often when I have found myself involved with sessions that you engineer, I only find out about the sessions at the last minute, the performers have doubts & insecurities about the tuning stability of the piano, when we seldom ever face such questions, & the fac us a exiting list. 38 minutes later we got a table.
