As a pianist, I have toured and played some of the best and some of the 
worst pianos imaginable and often have had to make the best of each.
Venues where you would expect some awful, beat up piano can surprise you 
with their pianos while some of the best and top clubs (they shall go un 
named) have some that really need work.
I say, unless the piano is REALLY impossible, make the best of it and move 
on...and...check the instrument before the gig or have someone do it for 
you, if possible.
What might be a Rolls Royce to one player, can be an Edsel to another. 
Unfortunately, as pianists we often don't have a choice.

Art Tatum played on out of tune pianos with broken notes and still made them 
sound like concert grands.
