last week during jazz band class, our teacher (who is really slack...to the point of disorganized) told the class that we are going to be playing a ceremony at the local community college monday afternoon/evening. more details as they develop, of course. on thursday, he said that he talked to the organizers of the event and said that they wanted something smaller than the entire band, and plus we hadn't rehearsed as an entire unit for a week (too many people not showing up, etc.). so he asked the keyboardist/drummer if he had a band who would tackle the gig. "yeah sure. we can play. blah blah blah" i felt relieved-i thought that he was talking about a group that he had ACTUALLY put together: one not including me. then it hit me: he WAS talking about that same group including me that played at an elementary school a month/ month and half ago (see my thread "two days, two VERY different gigs"). the sax player wasn't at class that day, so we haven't rehearsed once. we haven't even played together for a month! the only thing we really did was play a 20 minute long version of "sesame street" but that involved a few other people. we're gonna practice like no tomorrow starting 8th period...tomorrow. and we're gonna have to know a) what time to arrive and b) which campus it is at. and i'll have to ask to borrow the school amp and stuff... man, this really sucks. i'll let ya how it went soon!
