What a Wonderful World - not!

Yesterday I got a very exciting email from the Highest Point Festival in the UK offering to fly my whole band to Lancaster, England and pay us 5,000 Pounds (plus hotel & airline tickets)! 
It is a scam, of course. The festival, for starters, is a rock festival. Fellow musicians, please watch out for this kind of thing. 
Thanks to Lance Liddle, my friendly local jazz source (http://lance-bebopspokenhere.blogspot.com/), for helping me ferret out the truth. I finally called the festival organizers to check it out and they said they'd received other calls and it's false. Too bad... I would have loved to have done the gig if there had of been a gig!
