*Sorry for the lengthy post* I've been with my band over 2 years. We've played a ton of kick ass gigs, just recorded our 3rd EP, and are really starting to get a lot of name recognition around our city. I'm one of the original founders of the group - and we've only changed drummers once a year ago. My band got invited to play a gig in a couple months that I will be out of town for at a wedding in South Carolina - as I stated on our band Gmail calendar weeks ago. It's an opportunity to open for a major label band at a very popular college campus - there will be thousands in attendance. Here's the problem... My guitar player just recently moved into a "jamhouse" with his best friend who's an amazing musician. He's played bass for some really great local bands. He's also built like a runway model and has the charm of James Bond. He does a lot of managerial stuff too like booking and he knows tons of people. He offered to fill in the gig on bass if I can't make it (which I obviously they know I can't). Is this the beginning of the end? Have you guys been in this position? How has it turned out? Does someone REALLY just fill in for ONE gig??? Or am I just being paranoid???
