I promoted a concert and had a written contract with a

Resolved Question:

I promoted a concert and had a written contract with a specific named band through an agency, on the night the band I was under the impression I had booked did not turn up, but a replacement band did. I booked the band I did for the quality of their music
which I had seen previously, the sub contracted band were not only of a lower quality but actually operated under a totally different name, agent, address,website, number etc. They had no connection to the band paid for at all. The agents had no idea that
this was happening and are trying to mediate a settlement on my behalf, but if this is unsuccessful I need to know were I stand legally to pursue it, is it a breach of contract etc.?
