Last October, the tour bus for the supergroup GAYNGS was suddenly redirected back to Nashville from Austin, hauling the equipment, instruments, and members’ personal items but leaving the band behind without notice nor reason. The company refused to return to Austin with the equipment and personal belongings, even though the unexpected departure left GAYNGS stranded and emptyhanded. As a result, the band had to cancel their performance at the 2010 Austin City Limits. On May 18, more than six months after the unfortunate mishap, GAYNGS was finally vindicated, winning a lawsuit against the bus company C.J. Starbuses, Inc. and owner C.J. Curtsinger.

GAYNGS was awarded more than $100,000 in compensatory and punitive damages after their lawyers found the bus company and Curtsinger guilty of engaging in unfair and deceptive practices that maliciously prevented GAYNGS from performing their ACL set. GAYNGS manager Nate Vernon expressed his relief a statement released by the band: “I am extremely relieved that the jury understood the turmoil, both emotionally and financially, the band has gone through as a result being forced to cancel our ACL performance. No amount of money can make up for being deprived of that show; however, the peace of mind which comes from justice is the next best thing.”
