Hey all. I just joined a working cover band after several years of just playing in my Bass-Cave* ("Bass-Cave" may be non-existent) so I'm pretty stoked. The first band I was in with my friends in High School ('94-'00) was a cover band and then I was in a few original outfits. In my youth, I always thought there was a stigma being in a band that only does other artist's songs but I've grown out of that. I like this band because they approach every song thinking about how to make it sound new. We have 3 gigs lined up in Feb and March so this'll be my first time on stage in a looong time. I'm very stoked though. So, to all the TB'ers who are in or have ever been in cover bands...do you do them straight or switch them up and why?
