I've noticed there's a lot of threads written about playing in "this" band or "that" band. Should I stay or should I go? I've never had that issue, and I'm happy to say I've had a very happy and loving polyamourous relationship with The Nerve! for over 8 years now. I think that playing with other bands has helped me to grow in leaps and bounds in so many different ways - from learning different styles, playing with different drummers, playing with people better than me, stage experience - I could go on and on. The Nerve! is my #1 band and all other groups I've ever played with know it. That's only been a problem once or twice and I left the groups that didn't like it. Other than that I've never experienced any problems. When gigs come up it's first come first serve and I stick to it. I've been in up to 4 other bands - currently playing with 3 outside my baby. Do you play with one band or many and what are yer thoughts about it all?
