I know this is a really personal question. But are any of you on disability but still playing out? I've got a shot at getting into a cover band. But I'm on disability (please don't laugh) for a mental disorder. My fear is that they will think that if I can play in a band once a week that I would be able to hold a regular job. I honestly don't know if I could do the gigs or not. And I would of course make sure the band new that before hand. Even if i could handle the weekly gig, it wouldnt be the same as a regular job. I mean, being behind my bass, I almost feel like a different person. If that makes sense. I mean, if a regular job meant having my bass with me and four guys I'm comfortable with for 4 hours at a time, once a week , then I'd be all set. Anyway, would I wind up losing my benefits if I played out?
