Re: Band Drama it's everywhere

I hear you!! Starting over again & again is the WORST part of being in a band!!! I've been fortunate the last couple of years flowing from one band into another and still gigging regularly. Now I'm looking at starting over again too...this time I'm being picky as to what project I join up with. :wink:

Re: Band Drama it's everywhere

Ahhhh..."band drama" :D I believe in taking the "high road" although that is difficult sometimes. One thing I've learned over the years is I ONLY value the opinions of those who I respect. What I mean by that is if my guitar instructor gives me negative feedback it MEANS something to me. If some dru...

Re: Dead Man's Hand Gig Report - 10/12/2012

Awesome!!! :D You could switch guitars once per set but you have to have some stage banter for the 30 seconds or so dead time. Did I read that right you got to the bar at 2pm to set up for a 9pm show???

Re: My LAST gig w/Life is Drama

Well, IMO I do interact w/the crowd & I don't just stare at my shoes. I've gotten a LOT better over the years. I pay more attention to the crowd than I do my band. I know what they're doing...I see them at band practice every week. I smile at the crowd and if the crowd is into it then I'm into it. I...

Re: Dead Man's Hand Gig Report 09/08/2012

Nice report JW!!! Definitely "Gimme 3 Steps"!! The ladies will start for the dance floor from the opening riff!! Also you can do a mash up of Sweet Home Alabama & Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" (ladies LOVE that one too). Also some John Cougar/Mellencamp songs goes over well too (Hurts So Good, Jack &...
