How to politely and professionally quit

Anon La Ply

People talk about quitting in person but it's not always possible. I quit my last band by email. I was planning to tell them on the Thursday at band practice but then an email came around to say that they were planning a photo shoot.

So I immediately sent out a Dear John email, apologising for email notification, explaining my reasons (don't want to gig any more) and saying some of the nice things I've thought about them. They are adults and they understood. We still get along well.
