Band I was in more than 22 years ago..

Bass player" "I know the deputy major.. my cousin works for the local newspaper"

Typical words from a member of a "basement dweller" band, and that was where we stayed for the better part of 2 yrs outside of a few gigs at the same bar.

Hey, I was young and very naive then crazy

My favorite Red Flag from a new out of state for us club when asking our fee.

"What?!?!? I could get the real Journey for that!!"
Our fee wouldn't even wake up one of the rig drivers for Journey's show wink

I predicted he'd be out of business soon. Sure enough, lasted 11 months. Gone!

I'm not sure this was a red flag or a completely-missed opportunity...I answered one ad and talked for a while with the guy. Putting a band together, typical stuff. He then kind of built up to something, saying 'I need to ask you about this': he says "I have a contact that can get regular gigs, not a lot of bands will play these but it's good money."

Where were the gigs? At a couple nudist colonies grin

My first thought was I'd be playing with my Johnson hanging out but he immediately said "the band doesn't play nude."

I might have done it if all the other factors aligned, but nudist colonies aside it wasn't a good fit.

I stay away from crazy people. They are easy to identify-walk on the other side of the street or drive in another directions

I rarely run into crazy people. In fact, it seems like most people are on the other side of the street, or driving in different directions.

You'd hate to bring a 25-key controller if they were expecting a 61-key, and hoping for at least 73-keys...and maybe wishing for 88-key weighted.

Or a Yamaha Reface.

After all these years I finally understand why there is a big 'dip' between the upper and lower bouts.

But it is plural for me: I have upper and lower tools. I do worry sometimes that my performance might suffer because my tools are supported by an X-stand that might go down in the middle of performance. But I also get nervous when the lower tool remains stable for a over 4 hour gig, and I'm prompted to seek immediate medical attention.

(I promise: that is the last one) (I think).
