    Default First band rehearsal in months

    Things are beginning to open up here a bit, so we had our first band rehearsal in months today. Have to be honest, everyone was a bit rusty, but it felt good to be back together and working on some songs. Hopefully we can get it together good enough to book some gigs before too long.

    Yep -- now that the vaccines are becoming more common, my band will get together in 3 weeks when everyone is comfortable with the idea.
    We are already working on the same list of tunes so we can have them ready...……...otherwise we would shoot the bull and drink beer all night.

    None of the traditional music clubs are open yet, so I suspect gigs will be coming in slowly.
    Hopefully a few private functions will need us.

    Mine is scheduled. I'm still not playing inside until the numbers come down and more people are vaccinated.

    My second shot is scheduled for 4/12 and our first rehearsal is scheduled for 4/14. We just booked another gig at a new place for us(outside) on May 29th. We had played a few times at another place owned by the same guy, and he contacted us out of the blue to book at this place. He says the place gets packed on weekends which would be great if true and he also offered us multiple dates. So between this place and the other dates we've booked, our summer schedule may be filled.
