So last summer I moved about an hour from my old home, tried to keep playing with my old bands but gave up on the long commutes (and for other reasons) after a couple of months. Went on some auditions in the fall, and landed with two groups; an eclectic classic rock-to-modern-pop cover band and an oldies group. Both are startups, the modern group has one gig booked so far and plans to gig twice a month, the oldies group has nothing booked yet but just started pounding the pavement and has a lot of interest, so will probably start gigging soon, and seems like they want to gig as much as possible. I auditioned for one other group, an established 80s band that gigs 3-5 times a month. They were quite good, and I liked them, but I worried that with that gigging schedule I wouldn't be able to play in any other bands and I didn't want to play wall-to-wall 80s all the time. So after the audition I wrote the BL to say thanks but I was taking myself out of the running. I assumed that with that gigging schedule they'd have no problem finding a good bassist. I don't know how THEY thought I did and whether they would have offered me the slot if I hadn't withdrawn. Well, their ad just popped up on CL again, months later - I don't know if they never found anyone or if whoever they found didn't work out. So, I'm tempted to contact them again and ask if they'd be interested in me. I probably could spare time for rehearsal and I already know a lot of their music. Also, while I don't look to gigging to pay the bills, our household budget is very tight and a couple hundred extra a month would really come in handy. The question is, if the other bands (especially the oldies band) starts getting a lot of gig offers, there are likely to be a lot of scheduling conflicts. So, thoughts? Just looking for people's reactions. Should I stick to what I've got, or would a third band be reasonable to take on?
