Fortunately he found a mechanic

Location: 
Wyoming Valley, PA, USA
Type of Gig: 
Bar



We had just got done doing our thing and were loading up the truck with the PA system. I found all the doors looked and could hear giggling going on inside. I knocked on the door and heard our vocalist yell out "Can you come back in 15 minutes???"

15 minutes later, the rest of the band was standing outside. The door popped open and our vocalist came out with one of his groupies. His response? "I needed some service."
