"If you have no other business to attend to" is what it means? And is this phrase frequently used?

« Si rien ne vous appelle ailleurs, pourquoi ne pas vous joindre aux festivités ? »


"Appeller" here has the meaning of "to call" like in "duty calls (me)" : "le devoir m'appelle". It means you have to be somewhere or do something.

So "Si rien ne vous appelle ailleurs" basically means "if you don't have to be somewhere else".
