Turned down another gig...
I was asked by the band I sub for to play a AA/NA picnic next sat. Long drive, but since I'm a non - user myself I thought for once I'd feel comfortable. Well, the BL wants go right from being done @ 6:00 PM to driving east another hour to do a bar gig. I said no. I'm a Dad and husband first, musician 2nd. The whole reason I signed up is I was under the impression that this guy did lots of Festivals and Family friendly events. Hell, he gives the impression he's clean and sober and that's NOT the case.
I don't want to get swept away by this "we have to gig as much as possible" mentality I see guys have. We are a bunch of middle aged blues guys, we're a dime a dozen! We're not going to make it big! I'm buying my own P.A., there's lots of close places, and I know enough local guys that we could fofill my 2x a month, sleep in my own bed gigging needs! OK, deep breath rant over!

My wife says anything that causes me this much stress and anxiety isn't worth doing...
