One promoter told me that, in the long run, Klass would end up suffering, because if the band were to get to a struggling phase, most promoters in NY will turn their back on the band..."Now the market is changing, Harmonik, Tvice, Nu Look, Disip are all picking up, they are all being promoted by those same promoters that Klass refuse to give dates or work with, so either Klass would have to continue playing by themselves or those promoters won't match Klass with those bands who are picking up...they'll start to match up those bands, and Klass will continue to struggle to find another band to be matched up with", explained one promoter. Another one went on to say "I asked Foe for a date during a long weekend coming up, he told me no, because he's doing his own party with Klass that same weekend, that's not the way a band's rep should act, he should be giving every promoter an opportunity to work with the band, and not form a monopoly for himself."
I've brought that issue up to Foe and his reasoning was that from the beginning other promoters had opportunity to book the band for some important dates, but they chose not to use them and some decided to even drop the band after negotiating with the band, and he ended up taking the risk and having those events himself and that now he's not about to give up those dates after they've become successful. Some are even pushing their close fans and followers to boycott Klass' events in NY.
It seems like Foe is standing firm on his decision and some promoters are teaming up to abandon Klass if it were to come to that point.
Will the promoters and Foe reach an agreement to work together in the future?
Only time will tell...
