    Sometimes I keep a little extra, but usually I end up taking less so I can pay the other guys more. It depends on the gig. $400 (occasionally $350)...

    What I take away from it is a sense of justification. It’s OK to not be 100% “on the beat”. Its OK if your timing varies by a few BPM through the...

    No one around here plans outdoor gigs until May. Even then, it’s “dicey” at best in terms of weather. Memorial weekend ALWAYS rains. We always play...
