Hi everyone. I have a choice to make, and thought i'd get some imput from some of you wise(aged?) scribes. Ok here it is. I got an offer to play fulltime with a band that does clubs/casinos, and i've got 2 good friends in that band. People i've worked with before. Now, the upsides to this gig would be the friends, and the fact that i'd be playing music. The downsides are i hate casino's, clubs aren't my favorite places in the world either, this band plays 90% rock and even dance music, basically the play alot of stuff i dont like, this band is good, but is probably not going to get any bigger than it is now, and i've done the club/casino thing for years before, just be background music on alot of the gigs(musical death gigs), not bad, but not great pay, not really a musical advancement. My current situation is i have a one day a week gig that i love, get to play the music i love, get to play for a sober and enthusiastic crowd that truly loves and accepts what i do, i'm a "star" there. The drawbacks of my current situation are the owners of the show are great people, but are disorganized as the day is long, it's just one day a week so i have to work a day job that i don't hate, it's a hard gig to the point that we play 35 different songs everyweek, alot of them come back around in a few months, but the show is completly different every week. I find that both a real pain in the butt, and a really cool challenge, makes me practice during the week, cuz i wouldnt otherwise. but that i certainly don't love either. I do get a fair amount of spin off work off my one day gig, both other gigs and studio work, but still need to work a regular job. I guess the real is do i want to keep working a day job to keep doing a partime gig i love and find fulfilling, or do i want to play an unfullfilling gig with friends fulltime? Does any gig beat working a day job?
