Re: My LAST gig w/Life is Drama

@ Dogbite...totally setup. Looking back at the last gig I was on the FAR left side of the stage and the other band was BETWEEN me & my band. I thought that was kinda weird at the time but now it makes complete sense.

@ TR, THANKS man!!! :D Onward & Upward!!! :D

Re: My LAST gig w/Life is Drama

@ Cnev - yes its hard to keep a band together that's for sure!! I can't understand how your drummer can be mad. If I had that type of schedule I wouldn't be in a band. I wouldn't want to put others through that. @s1120 - I have a keyboard/guitarist coming over on Monday night to jam a little. Tossin...

Re: My LAST gig w/Life is Drama

Thanks for the compliment Noteboat!! Yep, they have a different "vision" and I told them I wasn't interested in lighting myself on fire and run around the stage like an idiot just to get attention. That's just not me & that's why it doesn't bother me that we've gone our separate ways. This was the f...

My LAST gig w/Life is Drama

This past Saturday (9/8/12) was my last gig with LIFE IS DRAMA. We played at Shark City (Glendale Heights). We played here a couple of months ago opening for Hal Spark’s band. This time we were playing with our bass player’s brother’s band, Bad Day. We opened for them earlier in the year at America’...

Re: Back to the Well - Gig Report

Nice report Laz!!! 70ppl is definitely a good turnout for a gig in the summer!! :D Yes, American Girl ALWAYS goes over well w/the the girls, I'm surprised you didn't put that in the 2nd set when the liquor kicks in you'll FILL the dance floor!! :D Glad the gig went well, look forward to hearing more...

Re: GIG REPORT - LIFE IS DRAMA @ Ballydoyles (Aurora)

A follow up report to this, we heard from our booking agent that the bar said our numbers were good but they didn't like what we played (material) or how we played them (performance). My guess was the material wasn't to their liking b/c I thought we played the material well. So I don't think we'll b...

GIG REPORT - LIFE IS DRAMA @ Charley Horse (New Lenox)

On Saturday (8/4/12) my band LIFE IS DRAMA played at Charley Horse (New Lenox). Its been a couple weeks so I'll try to remember how the gig went. This was our first time playing here, we were scheduled to play Charley Horse (Tinley Park) but they closed so we were moved to this bar. Charley Horse is...

Re: Gig Report - Dead Man Hand's at 11th Frame

That's AWESOME JW!!! :D Great report!!! Yes, you are right about the first set, rarely does anyone start dancing during the first set. The first set is what I call the "invitation to dance" set. It gets people in the mood to party. Usually you have to wait for the liquor to kick in (2nd set) and the...

Re: Gig Report - LIFE IS DRAMA's Double Header Weekend!!

ABSOLUTELY JW!!! :D That's how I'd do it too. If you have to drive that far try and get 2 gigs in the area and a hotel nearby. Casinos are all about SELLING LIQUOR so if you play and get a BIG bar tab...you're GOLD!!! :D Good Luck!!! I'm trying to use these gigs to book another gig @ Harrah's (Jolie...

Re: Gig Report - LIFE IS DRAMA's Double Header Weekend!!

Thanks for the response Laz!! Yes, last time I lugged my amp all through the casino floor. After that I said I'd make due w/what they had. It was NICE!!! Drums are enclosed w/a drum shield so all the volume is controlled & the crowd is VERY EASY, which makes it REALLY FUN!!! :D I LOVE playing here!!...

This past Saturday my band LIFE IS DRAMA played a double header. Our first gig was a corporate event up in Lake Forest, IL. It was a medical company's annual picnic and they asked us to play during lunch (11:30am-1:00pm). We were told we could load in anytime after 9am, the rest of the band got ther...

GIG REPORT - LIFE IS DRAMA @ Ballydoyles (Aurora)

This past Saturday night my band LIFE IS DRAMA played at Ballydoyles (Aurora). We played Ballydoyles (Downers Grove) last month and our booking agent said if we did well there he'd try and get us into the one in Aurora. The one in Aurora hosts a LOT of the BIG COVER BANDS in our area so I was STOKED...
