Interesting discussion. Not sure what the specific details behind  
this particular scenario are, but riders are oftentimes disregarded/ 
ignored/altered by some venue operators when the riders are really  
there for everyone's benefit. They answer many questions about the  
technical needs and stage set-up for jazz combos who must travel  
lightly.

Of course, piano endorsement deals are as unique as the pianists who  
have them. So....many facets to this type of scenario the lead to a  
balance of rolling with it and drawing a line for quality standars.  
Aahhh, the art of the business of music.
