I play in two bands (actually three, but the third one doesn't do much). The blues band has a gig booked at a sports bar for April 25. I just got a very excited e-mail from the leader of the R&B band about a gig at a popular nightclub the same night. This sucks. Yes, it's my own fault, but I've been in so many bands that are all talk and that never get gigs, I didn't think it would be a problem. I'd rather do the R&B gig; I think that is a better band with more potential, and it's a higher profile gig. But I did already commit to the blues gig. I think I'm going to ask the blues band if we can switch our gig at the sports bar to another night. We're in the regular rotation there. The nightclub gig, OTOH, is open because one of the popular local bands had to cancel, and it's our chance to get out foot in the door there. Failing that, I'll see if I can hire a sub for the blues gig. Blues tunes are easy, right?
