And this is NOT a joke! I just got home from my personal 1st gig EVER and it was also the first gig for our new modern country band. Our female singer is friends with the owner of a bar and they were having a mechanical bull in tonight so our singer asked him if we could play a couple of sets and he agreed. We've only been together since November and we only have about 20-22 songs right now. Friday night at rehearsal we threw together Sweet Home Alabama and Tush just so we'd have a few extras. The show could NOT have been better received! 1st set was about 12 songs, took a break, went back and played the remainder plus Sweet Home. After we finished the 2nd set- we were asked to do an encore!! So we ran through about 5 or 6 songs a second time and called it a night. After we finished breaking down the stage gear we went to the bar for a quick one- bartender says " You guys shoulda done more songs" we tell her- thats all we know, we've only been at it for about 2 months. She almost falls over and tells us we were better than almost every band they've had play there!! Long story short- the bar owner has now committed to at least 3 paying gigs later this year!! What a RUSH!!!
