I play in a pretty busy covers/originals band and I also play on my church's worship team (unpaid volunteer). So a few weeks ago I committed to play at my church this upcoming Sunday, which means a practice the Thursday night before. Last weekend, loading out from the cover band gig and that BL says he has a gig for us... for Thursday. At first I thought the timing would work out for me to do both, but found out yesterday the gig and my church practice times overlap. So I had to bow out of the paying gig. I told the BL and he was OK with me missing the gig cause he gave us such short notice but it still kinda stinks cause it would have been an "acoustic" job (minimal setup) probably paying me $100-150 for 2 1/2 hours of easy work. Oh well, I would have felt a lot worse about leaving my worship leader SOL so my conscience is clear anyway. I guess I must not have needed the money that much. I'm sure this happens to people a lot but it's never really happened to me before and it's not a big deal but am feeling the need for a mini-vent, anyway. Thx for listening.
