This is not a rant on musicians who do so.....just my experience. I have had 3 bands fall apart, in the past 1 1/2 years, due to one or more musicians playing in other bands. I live in an area with a few really good musicians. I put bands together to play quality covers in a quick manner. Having gigs scheduled with these guys is a gamble at best. I never know what and when I can book a gig or if they'll show up (unprofessional IMHO). Unfortunately, this makes me look bad to the establishments who hire me. So, I've put together a trio (no drummer) and cover everything from the Beatles to Country to Bruno Mars with my wife and a guitarist I've worked off and on with for the past 15 years. I am having more fun and less stress than I've ever experienced working with a "full" band. My question is....has anyone else run into this issue or is it just an issue in my area?
