    my partner and i were asked to play for a 1 year birthday party
    for a litter of irish setters.the owner was concerned about our equipment so he insisted we set up in the kennel so the pups
    wouldn't mess with our stuff.
    check out the pic.

    Chuck Sher publishes my book, WALKING BASSICS:The Fundamentals of Jazz Bass Playing.
    I didn't understand if you meant as audience or as payment...

    Please tell me that you were performing for people celebrating a one year birthday for a litter of pups, not just for a litter of pups and the owner(s). I can't imagine performing a gig while my audience was out pissing on bushes, licking their genitals and smelling each-other's butts.
  9. But then it's not a real party!

    Just wondering if the pups had any requests. Like, Dog Eat Dog, Who Let The Dogs Out, Hair Of The Dog, anything by Three Dog Night? You still haven't told us if this was a paying gig or something to build some character. :D

    ok ok so many questions
    the pups were irish setters
    the people were yuppies drunk on shiraz.
    We actually had a pretty good time.
    yea we got paid well.
    lets see we played
    "You aint nothin but a hound dog"
    "you say i'ts your birthday"(the beatles)
    "sixteen Candles"...(just kidding)
    "took dog blues" one of our originals..
    '"Puppy Love" (hurl, vomit)
    "met my wife at a dog show..she took first prize" (not appreciated
    for the fine song that it is)

    I should have clarified. I mean licking their own genitals. If that were possible, I'm sure there'd be plenty of guys who'd never leave the house.
