So basically, the other day we had a gig where we were sharing the bill with about ten or so other acts, it was like a variety show for local musicians. We were going to play a couple of smooth numbers and some jazz funk. We were sharing the drum kit with all the other acts and so we had just a snare, a ride and a hi hat cause of someone's bad organisation. Our drummer turned up late, totally baked. The smooth numbers went great, but when we moved on to our funky stuff, the crowd got and danced and some jumped up on stage and started playing bits of percussion that had been left around on the stage. We were playing a head followed by 32 bar solos each. All was good till the drum solo, when the adrenalin and whatever **** he was on mixed together to create the most awesome drum solo I've seen, like no-holds barred stuff. Unfortunately this ended in the kit being trashed and the sticks he had been lent, cause he hadn't brought any, being totally shredded. As this turned the atmosphere sort of awkward the tune broke down and i ended up jamming a funk groove with some other drummer playing bongos who had rushed the stage earlier, while our drummer collect bits of drum kit and sticks from around the stage. We ended up with a 3 drummers, a bongo player, some maraca players, a sax, a guitar, a bass and two pianists up on stage just grooving crazily while the crowd danced. Was an awesome gig, but pretty crazy compared to my previous ones, the start of the drug fuelled music playing I think. What experiences do other people have of gigs getting a bit out of control or playing with guys that are high?
