I think it's just information out of context.  Many of the performers 
who post on Danny's list lift their schedules out of some other 
calendar, such as their own website listing.  In that context, a 
private engagement listing lets the viewer know that the date is 
already taken, and also, for touring performers, that the act is in a 
particular area.  From a band's perspective, it's always better to look 
busy, so the more dates the better.  Around Christmas time our band 
always lists its private bookings to help potential bookers plan their 
event around available times.  Perhaps on the gig list this is less 
useful, since it's primarily targeted to the audience.
