Stoked about a new gig. Playing a rocktoberfest.
So i wad having lunch in a restaurant on sunday with my wife and son. My wife sees someone she recognizes walk in and she goes to say hello and a few minutes later she brings this old friend over to the table. He has a band and needs a new lead guitar. I went to their rehearsal and everything gelled pretty well. They said, "we host an open mic at a bar 10 minutes from here. Would you like to come out with us?" I did and it went pretty good to. After the gig was over the band leader was really impressed with how well i fit with their sound and said that he wants me to play regularly. He also said that the group is on the ticket for an upcoming rocktoberfest in spartanburg sc on saturday october 12. The band is called temporary empire. I am pretty excited about it all as i have never played to more than about 75 people before and this show will probably be at least a thousand people.
Also after the show the club manager came up to me and thanked me for coming out and commented on how much better the band sounded that night than it had on other nights. The band is now booked to play the same club for a 3 hour gig on a friday in september. Im not saying i had anything to do with it but i am excited about thr momentum this group seems to have.
If anyone is interested in the rocktoberfest or in coming to check out the group in charlotte nc please pm me.
I only play bass some of the time, but when I do I make sure to have a good time.
