Turns out the band breaking up was a good thing. Isn't it funny how things seem to work out for the better? I can't really go into details yet namewise but I auditioned for a band yesterday & they just called to let me know I have the gig! They had some really nice things to say which always helps one's self-esteem. No, my head is not the size of a Macy's Day balloon. Yet! Some cool things about this gig- Salaried. 52 weeks. Tour or no tour. Hotels whenever travel constraints allow. Ahhh... Prevost hell avoided. All meals provided. If venue fails on food, a per diem is issued. I know G. Strait's people are salaried, I was wondering if anyone else is doing this.
