Refusing Serviceby David Cohenhttp://philadelphiaguitarnews.com/2014/02/24/arizona-bill-event-service/
I was excited! It was DC, it was a political event, and it was a great opportunity for me to further my name establishing it deeper into the event industry in DC. After reading the email inquiry I Googled the persons name and came across information that matched very closely to the person mentioned in the email. The caveat was that this person had a strong background with the kkk and didn't hide the fact. I decided at that point that I would not call him back because I would not sell my talent for this event, as I am morally opposed to his belief. In addition to it actually being his choice to pitch for that team.
