For some reason this is bugging me and I can't figure out why, so I thought I'd ask everyone's opinions on this issue. The cover band I am in, which is a "hobby" band (that is we only wish to play out 3 -4 times a month) is starting to get gigs pretty easily. The thing that bothers me is that these gigs are accepted without clearing the dates with the other band members. So far this hasn't been a problem (except for one gig, that was less money than we normally would've played for anyways), but it seems reasonable to me to at least run it by the members of the band to see if they have any issues with the date that is set. To further complicate this, a few times a few members of the band were asked, but I have yet to be asked. I also feel that accepting any gig that comes by, "cheapens" the band. I'd rather focus on better gigs than more gigs. thoughts? Am I being a baby about this? I'd like to set up an internet calendar, that everyone can block off dates and that can be checked before accepting gig, but so far, as soon as the club asks, we accept. let it rip!!
