Ringworm, Eyehategod Ripped Off By Savannah Promoter



The worst part about being a small band, aside from touring in a van, is getting paid. I’ve been told by band dudes it is a most awkward situation sometimes.

Some promoters are shady, and try to undercut bands after they’ve already performed.

This weekend, a promoter named Floyd Daniel allegedly disappeared after a show in Savannah, Georgia. The gig features Eyehategod, Ringworm, and Enabler.

The Saturday show at Dollhouse Productions was priced at $25 a ticket. But Lionel apparently took off, never paying the bands or the venue.

Offers Ringworm:

“So, yeah, us, Enabler and Eyehategod got ripped off in Savannah, GA. The promoter, Floyd Lionel, left and didn’t pay any of us. His email is [email protected] and phone is 404 713 2468 (although it appears to be shut off).”

An article about Lionel, printed last week, claims he’s probably now in New York.

[UPDATE: Lionel has since issued a statement, saying “apologies all around for Saturday not making excuses but I suffer from Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) what you witnessed Saturday night was a person having a full blown mental breakdown due to a lot of undue stress from what was already a very long and stressful day. My departure was not based upon any attempt to avoid responsibilities or as some corners have said ‘run off with band money.’ But to prevent a situation that could have quite easily deteriorated into a far worse harmful situation for myself and others around me. Again apologies to all whom were directly adversely affected by my breakdown.”]
