    I had no idea it was his first night until I saw...

    Re: Very humbling drumming experience???

    Problem resolved......forget the whole thing.
    I've worked hard for so many years at the art and mechanics of drumming.
    I had multiple goals, but none of them were open mic night.

    Re: Gig Preparation

    Fantastic.........we always had 8 or 10 club gigs per year between the private functions we would also play.
    Since the pandemic, we no longer have any clubs/public gigs in venues worth gigging.
