So my wife is in a class reunion organizing team and she happened to ask me if my band could play, now that they changed to a bigger venue with a stage and dance area. Only the keys/2nd guitar player can't make it, but a quick exchange of texts got an old friend to join as second guitarist instead. Our project has nicely fallen into a 60s - 70s rock groove, and since this is a 35-year reunion for a class that graduated in 1979, I felt we can do it. This will mean some changes in the song list. And, while we're at it, I suggested some songs I knew the sub guitar player was comfortable with. I also knew he would be okay with songs I just knew would be suggested by the said organizing committee member. Today is our first rehearsal. I quickly dug up chord charts to about 10 songs we haven't played before but that I felt we would need to do at the gig. This morning, wife says something to the effect that requests will be coming from the organizing committee. I told her that we will listen, but that due to the lineup changes, we would prefer rocking numbers that a 2-guitar four-piece could comfortably do. This ensued in a big row about life and my attitude in general. Oh boy what I have dragged myself into. And... I, the one-time science nerd, would be rocking in public, to my old friends from high school. Probably 100 in attendance. We'll see how the buildup to the June 14th Saturday goes.
