BbAltered Posted September 27, 2016 Share Posted September 27, 2016 So, I am on a mailing list of a local guy that leads a B3 soul/jazz trio, and I got an email from him telling about an upcoming gig at a venue near me. I was excited to see his group (I also took lessons from him for a while so I want to say "hi"), so I checked my gig calendar to see if I was free that night and it turns out our soul band has a gig that night at the same club where he is playing!! This is actually the second time this venue has booked our soul band and then we find out they have also booked some other band for the same night. Grrr! And it is a ridiculous place to play: too tiny for our 7-piece band; the owner only puts in $200 and we have to encourage the crowd to kick in more in the "tip jar". On the plus side, the crowd is boisterous and dances a lot, and it's a gig in a market where gigs are hard to come by. One of our guys put in a lot of effort to lock down that date. Gigging is a bitch. J.S.
