I love the American legal attitude to daylight saving. We were there with my band but our permit only allowed us to do concerts and festivals. The unions put a ban on club work.I get an extra hour to drink tonight!!!!! WOOOHOO!!!
When we got to Shreveport, one of the club owners made us his guests for the week and we never had to pay for a drink. We would have liked to play for him as a thankyou but if we'd upset the unions, we would never have got back there.
Guess what? Saturday night was daylight saving night and legally, the hour from 2AM to 3AM was open for clubs to stay open or not as they chose. Most had a 2AM licence back then. The local Union rep told us he wouldn't mind if we played that hour as it didn't exist so that's what we did.
I often wondered what happened if you robbed a bank or something during that hour.
