Thus begins June, the busiest month of my musical life! I have 8 confirmed gigs with a 9th possible. Admittedly, I won't be playing bass for all of them, but I thought it could still be interesting to write about. (There may even be a slight chance it turns out to be interesting to read as well.) The other times I'll play sax, percussion, and even some acoustic guitar. Oh, and I'll be providing the PA and mixing from the stage for some shows too. The first show is this Wednesday, a one hour set as part of the featured band at a blues society jam. I'll be playing my trusty '78 Jazz through the house amp, a nice little SWR which I have used many times (I never remember the model). I've played with this particular band twice so far, both 3+ hour gigs, the first of which I had almost no warning. I got the call for that one in the morning, just in time to grab my bass and amp on my way to work! I've yet to rehearse with them, but it was a list of pretty familiar tunes, and the guitar player called the changes out as needed. I'm pretty excited and I keep looking at my calendar in disbelief. I'm sure there are a lot of pros or semi-pros out there who wouldn't blink an eye at 8 or 9 shows in a month, but it's a big deal for me, especially since I just jumped back into music about 2 years ago. Thanks for listening.
