  1. w00t, just finished my first gig. school pep band. although really, it was just me, drummer, guitarist and a few horns. i always thought it wouldnt be fun to play for school, but i was wrong. playing in front of a huge gym full of close to 500 people was awesome. especially when people came up to us after the concert and said we sounded so much better this year. :rolleyes: partly due to the fact they let me play some funk. i just wanted to share my excitement with the forums.
  2. Congrats on the gig! It always make me feel good when I have a good show, especially when people enjoyed it. :bassist:

    I remember my first pep-band gig... I felt like a cheerleader with a mellaphone (a.k.a. the bastardhorn). Our basketball team got to the finals and played at the Airforce Academy's area. I played so hard and so loud that I overtook the entire band and made people across the arena stare at me like I was nuts. I was one of the loudest trumpet/bastardhorn players around...and then I quit after high school. Good riddance you lousy horn!

    Ummm anyway.. glad you enjoyed it! :D
  4. yea, its always fun when u get to use an amp that makes ur pants flap in the wind. :rolleyes:
