A great local band that plays original music was just booked to play someones surprise 30th birthday party at Pit and Pub, and while I love their food.. especially the Cuban and the Crab Dip, which is probably the BEST CRAB DIP in Ocean City, the event planning and band booking was completely disorganized and all wrong for this event. If the birthday planner could not do research on the band that they booked for their friends birthday, and realize that who they had coming to play was an Original Song Band, not your typical cover band, not ones to pander to their audience and sing played out old songs like Journeys "Dont Stop Beleivin" (dont get me wrong... we ALL love that song, but make a playlist on your IPOD and play it over the sound system if thats what you want) They shouldnt promise musicians who traveled over 300 miles only because they were promised 200 dollars by this establishment to play a show they were told nothing about, their music is out there to be sampled so they could decide that YES this is the band we want or NO that is isnt, instead they booed these great creative original musicians offstage and kicked them out, without paying them and sending them back to DC empty handed. They need to do their research and book another typical Jimmy Buffet cover band for their next preppy yuppy event. There was a football game going on and drunk bar customers were screaming at the top of their lungs at the screen, yet the bar tender blamed all the noise and not being able to hear his customers orders on the band being too loud. um WELCOME to BARTENDING BUDDY> You must have never asked a punk band to turn down the volume before, or you never would have asked in the first place ; ) Still, the food is always great, and if the kitchen staff keeps up the great work, they will keep this place alive.
