OK, sometimes you win.
The day after turning down the gig I described in my previous post, I got called to do another engagement for the same week in March.
This one is 6 services for AA scale, which comes out to around $1300. That's about 2.5 times what the previous job offer would have paid. Plus, its a more interesting show, with top notch players.
I feel vindicated. And extremely lucky.
