    How was your gig last night?

    I've seen a lot worse set ups. We played a restaurant that books live music . It was so small we couldn't bring in lights or sound. But the place was packed and the crowd was fantastic. A good engaged crowd will make up for a lot of other evils we have to deal with. Blue

    You guys really value free food at gigs. Must be a cultural thing I never eat at gigs. I did get a $75. 00 gift certificate from our New Year's Eve gig. I like that. Blue

    Been here before...going on a hiatus?

    When your an old timer like me that learned songs from moving that needle back and fourth on a machine called a " record player" YouTube song tutorials are great. However, I know the type . The type that would rather not learn the material than look at a YouTube clip showing you exactly how to play a song. That would be way to much work. Blue

    This is a stretch, but if your playing with guys that have traditional full time jobs and family, the band will never be a priority to them. Blue

    I must sound like a broken record People want different things out of a band. Some guys want very little, just the opportunity to play/ rehearse once a week is enough. Some guys want a lot, specific genre, gigs booked and money. Age matters, a would think what a 21 years old is looking for might be different than what a 60 year old wants. My point is, if you don't know what your looking for more than likely you will be disappointed Blue

    Joining/starting/finding bands

    The only decent resource for publically advertised opportunities we have is MilwaukeeRocks. The Bass Player Wanted section has had absolutely no opportunities for over 3 months. Blue

  10. Sounds like it wasn't the right band for you. The drop D stuff should have been discussed prior to the audition. Me, If I don't completely own the audition material, I'll cancel BTW, none of this " heres our set list, pick 4 songs to audition" No way would I comply with that. You pick 4 songs and you find out too late they're songs they no longer play and don't even know anymore. I say, you tell me what songs you want me to audition. Blue

    Biggest Gig To Date

    I have always questioned the sound support acts get compared to the sound the actual star/headliner gets. Blue

    I've been lucky to play headliner stages at Summerfest, the world's largest music festival for the past 7 years. Blue

    I'm still maintain my " you had to be there"position. However, all of the younger guests on the show we're inpressive and well versed. Blue
