What do you say to a naked sheriff?
What song do you play when you're being robbed at gunpoint?
What happens when a swanky Cabaret performance turns into a virtual vomit-fest?
And when you're stuck on a frozen, high mountain pass with no way down, who gets eaten first: the drummer or the roadie?
These scenarios, plus many more, told by musicians, artists, and managers in their own words make up Another Nightmare Gig from Hell.
Presented by Nick Zelinger and Tammy Brackett, Another Nightmare Gig from Hell offers up the humorous, sometimes scary, mundane, and downright touching stories of what musicians encounter in the studio, on the road, plying their craft, and enduring another possible nightmare.
An entertaining (and enlightening) compilation of true stories from musicians, artists, managers, promoters, and more.

These stories are very believable, being a musician myself I have been in similar situations. I particularly like the Kev Ron story, #4 I think. A must read very entertaining! 5 stars.
A very well written, behind the scenes look at music. I enjoyed this book very much, and feel like I have a better grasp of what goes on behind the stage. I received this book at no cost from the publisher author narrator for a honest review.
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
My only complaint is I didn't want it to end!! the narrator did an excellent job & the story was great! I just wish it was longer!! I can't wait to hear more from this author & NARRATOR
I'm an avid audio book listener as well as a long form voice over (audio book narration) performer.
This book is a series of short tales about life on the road. Some are laugh out loud funny, some are downright creepy and others are very touching. There’s one tale in this book that I found particularly special. It’s the next to last story and it entertains and teaches an important life lesson in a very touching way. For this one story alone, it’s worth getting this book.
Even if you’ve never touched a musical instrument, this book is well worth the listen.
If you’ve ever gone to a local bar and listened to a band working their butts off on that stage, for little to no pay, you should listen to this book. It will give you great insight as to what the poor guys and gals have to endure to do something they love.
If you play in a cover/garage/up and coming band, then you should definitely listen to this book. It will help prepare you for that hard life on the road, and may even teach you a lesson in humility along the way.
The narrator does a fine job, he sounded better on some stories than the others, but I suspect that may have had more to do with the source material than the talent of the narrator.
In short, just spend the credit (or the cash) and listen to the book, you won’t regret it.

(I know, I know, my review is “honest and unbiased”. Yeah, right! Well check out my other reviews. You’ll see that I generally pull no punches and I do my best to give an honest review, even though I may have received the book for free.)
