Do you play in New Year's Eve?
I'm very glad to start the new year playing with my friends.
I will play at Puertohurrako's in Barcelona with my band SHAKE! (Soul and rocknroll band)
Where will you play? With what band?
Happy new year to all of you TB'ers and Talk Bass Staff!

This year is a house party. Playing everything from Bill Monroe to Bootsy.

I used to gig on New Year's Eve. Over the years, I have seen more people hosting parties at home and fewer people going out. My current band has a policy that we do not gig between Thanksgiving and New Year's. We gig so much during the year that we would rather spend the holidays with family.

I am filling in with a band that does original songs and some classic covers for a First Night Celebration in my home town. They have 5 venues with different live music entertainment all for free from 5 - 10 followed by fireworks. Thousands of people show up for it throughout the various sites.

We've done house parties the last few years but nothing this year.
I bet I'm asleep before midnight. :D
|Richland123 ||12-29-2013 02:45 PM |
I just got back from practice with the band I am filling in with for New Year's Eve and there was a message from another band asking if I could fill in with them for New Year's Eve.
I can't do both gigs and the second one is 90 miles away. If anybody needs a gig around Morgantown, WV with an oldies band, let me know.

I'll be playing the Clarendon Ballroom
in Arlington, VA with my band Lost in Paris. Any TBers come out and mention TB, I will personally give you a FREE high-five! What a deal!

Corporate Party Band Gig in Tulsa, OK. Busing from Nashville and returning the same night. Not only playing bass but Road Managing. Prayers are appreciated! ;)

Made a killing over the years playing NYE. Don't fancy the aggravation anymore. This year a 5 pm show at a retirement home with the 4-man Chalmers Doane Trio and home to family.
|FrenchBassQC ||12-29-2013 04:38 PM |
Yeah I'll be playing here in my home town at a big venue, did it last year for the first time at that location and it was a lot of fun.

My working band just retired, playing our last gig at the start of December. This will be my first New Years off in 5 years and only the 5th or 6th off in 40 years.
To top things off this is the first New Years my wife hasn't had to work in 4 years. We're going to hang around the house, put out some munchies and enjoy a couple of soda pops without having to worry how I'm going to get home or her having to be up at 4:30 in the morning for work.

My working band, private affair at Country Club in Louisville, KY. Great pay and free rooms, you bet I'll be working.
|theduke1 ||12-29-2013 04:46 PM |
Got a call last week to fill in turned it down
|Papersen ||12-30-2013 04:28 PM |
Last year I played at 2am in a small bar and had a Great time.
I had the chance to do the same this year but finally decided to stay with my family instead.
|electracoyote ||12-30-2013 04:33 PM |
Taking the rare NYE off this year. Had an opportunity to play for big bucks. My wife won. I have spent most of the past 38 NYE's as an entertainer. Some have been outrageous fun, some have been okay, some have been depressing. I'm gonna enjoy myself this NYE for sure.
|Stilettoprefer ||12-30-2013 06:57 PM |
Played last year, not this year, thankfully. Couldn't really enjoy the party last year because I don't like to drink then play.
This year my buddy is hosting a gigantic NYE party at his parents winery. A couple metal bands, some rock bands and a very talented reggae band are playing. Oh, and a keg of Drop Top!
This years ending will be good! I'm even single for it this time around!!:D

Playing New Years Eve Ft Myers FL
My band Trezz Hombres ( ZZ TOP Tribute) is playing at the Ft Myers River District New Years Eve bash.
It should be great like last year.
|Clouz ||12-30-2013 11:04 PM |
nope, we're still looking for a singer/front man
|Broadstbully22 ||12-30-2013 11:12 PM |
I play every nye chance I get. Bars packed, good money and exposure plus its a stupid holiday anyway. The only thing good about it is the bar scene so why not play it. This year will be a blast, bar is already calling us asking us to play it next year and we haven't played a note yet. So I'm glad most of you seem above playing it. More gigs for me. Lol.
|Feral Feline ||12-30-2013 11:22 PM |
Celtic crock at an Irish pub for a few years now. This'll probably be the last year as I heard the bar is closing (rent increases aren't controlled here).
Fiddler's got my back.
