I booked a standing gig for our three-piece band to play at a local venue on the last Friday of each month for a special dinner they have. We've been playing there since November and the gig has been going great. They like us, we enjoy the people there, etc. Myself and the g**tarist/singer both work regular jobs, so we have rehearsal on Wed. night, then meet to break down and load up on Thursday night. I haul the equipment in my Yukon XL with me to work and just leave for the venue on Friday after work. So, we show up yesterday afternoon @ 5:30 and begin to unload when the manager comes running up to us and says "Hey, you guys aren't supposed to be here until next Friday!". You know what, HE WAS RIGHT. When I recorded the date on my PDA, I didn't think about the possibility of February having 5 Fridays. After all, February has only 28 days, right? That means 4 or each Sunday through Saturday. EXCEPT, this is leap year which means February has 29 days and the first just happened to fall on Friday! I was really embarrassed, but the venue manager was very cool about it. He had a Karaoke outfit booked, and he even called them to see if they wanted to swap Fridays with us since we were already there. Turns out they had another committment for the 29th, so we just loaded back up and took the equipment back to the practice space and set up. The other two members of our trio were really understanding about the mix-up, but I still feel really dumb for making the mistake. In the end, I'm glad the Karaoke people didn't want to swap, because our crowd is always much larger than theirs. I guess the good news is, I didn't book anything else for the 29th! How about it? Anyone else as dumb as me? Ever break down, load up and show up for a gig on the wrong night?
