May I ask how Mrs. Moonglow feels about this gig? Has it been discussed?

I had a gig at a ďmenís clubĒ ( I guess thatís a nice way to say strip club)
I never brought up the details of the gig with my wife, and somehow she found out months later, and she didnít take it too well. Maybe if I told before hand she wouldíve been O K with it? I doubt it! Anyways, it was a good gig and no complaints from me about the ďdancersĒ

A gig is a gig. How do you think she would feel if it was a gay bar?

Youíre right, a gig is a gig..., Honestly after working awhile at the strip club gig the thrill kind of wears off.... it just a gig...

As far as the gay bars, Iíve done gigs at those too. My wife didnít care because Iím not attracted to men.

Your point is well taken. Moonglow mentioned that he was married, and I thought he should take his wifeís feelings into consideration. Secrecy is not a good thing in a relationship.

I told Ms. Glow within minutes of receiving the phone call informing of the gig. She laughed. I have a very cool wife who is secure in our relationship, as am I. We do have a band member whose wife is a real ball-buster, and I suspect he will adopt a less-than-forthright strategy. Don't roll that way, myself...

If there is one place a married male musician is almost guaranteed NOT to have the opportunity to ďjump the fenceĒ, itís a strip club.

I hope not to offend anyone, but here goes. Iíll try to keep it rated PG-13. The venue more closely approximated a nightclub or lounge than a barn as previously described. There was also a D.J. and food buffet.

Overall I found the night to be an interesting, yet rather bizarre, subcultural experience. Lots of visual stimuli and behavior that exceeded normative social boundaries, but I guess by definition thatís what it is! Definitely felt like I needed to take a shower and/or wash my eyes out with bleach afterwards. Never really felt overly uncomfortable...they were friendly, welcoming folks who enjoyed our music (they want us for a return engagement)...but I did feel a little weird after the gig and still a little like that today. Sort of a delayed reaction, perhaps after the defensive/adaptive structures I needed to get through the evening settled down.

Playing wise, I found it to be a distracting experience to which I never became completely habituated or desensitized. Funny, but the barrier of the stage sort of made me feel ďsafeĒ while playing. I'd look out to the crowd and it was easy to find some extreme, salacious activity going on. Around 20% of the participants were at least topless, a percentage that increased as the night progressed. Some participants were completely naked the entire time. Then Iíd look up and there's the nonstop pornos on the large TV screens behind the bar right next to where I was playing. While most of the hardcore activity took place up in the loft (usually, but not always, beyond my eye sight) there was constant frolicking on the dance floor that at times involved explicit intimate contact.

Thanks to all for the input and sharing of experiences, it helped me ďprepareĒ for the gig. I found Adanís advice to be very helpful, and frequently reminded myself to focus on the job I needed to do. Not sure how I feel about a return engagement. While we appeared to enhance an enjoyable evening for most, the band is definitely not the ďmain event,Ē so that is probably not a difficult objective to accomplish.

I again apologize to those who found this topic offensive, and totally understand if the moderators need to nuke this thread.

I'm not a mod of this area, but I don't even think this thread is OT. I mean, it was about a gig after all.


The great thing about music is that there's always something to learn. The frustrating thing about music is that there's always something to learn!

Did the "all high-egergy" music as requested fit in retrospect?

Generally, yes. But we did work in a couple of ballads (e.g., Purple Rain) which actually seemed to facilitate more carnal activity.
