    Default Fun gig tonight

    So last night around midnight I got a call from the leader of the blues band I played with last fall and winter. They had a last minute gig and needed a drummer. That gig was tonight.

    I agreed to do it.

    We never played the place we played tonight but we did a 2 1/2 hour set for about 50-60 people. They were a fantastic crowd. They danced, the applauded, and helped us to have a great time.

    By the end if it, we got invited back and the owner of the place said she would challenge anyone to find a blues band as good as us from our area. (That made us feel good.)

    After that was done, the leader approached me and said we need to start practicing as a band because the drummer they have been using isnt making it to gigs and they are highly considering bringing me on board full time.

    All in all, it was a good night!

    I love gigs like that. The fact that they're considering replacing their regular drummer says a lot about the impression you made.
    Awesome!

    It's funny how things work out. This past January I was called up for a rockabilly trio. The guitarist was hospitalized for spine complications. The project was shelved so I filled in for a R&B band. The drummer has a weird work schedule so I played the gig. The guitar player from the R&B quit and now we formed our own band with 2 additional players it's been fun.
    Hope things work out and have fun!!!
