Hey Talkbassers: who wants to take my gig?

    Not sure where to put this, but here goes: due to other opportunities, I can't do my bar / wedding gig any longer. I've been helping out while my "bosses" look for a replacement but I'd really like to sign off for good. Any Talkbassers up for it?

    99% of gigs happen in the south Chicago suburbs (Tinley Park, Midlothian, Oak Lawn, Merrionette Park, etc etc). Bar gigs pay $100-$150 and weddings pay $300. I've never been stiffed on a gig ever and the guys are really easy to work with and just excellent human beings, not to mention great musicians. Practices are usually once sometime in the week before the gig and are again in the south Chicago suburbs. Here's a list of songs you'd be required to do (I didn't type this list so please don't laugh too hard):

    I got a feeling
    jump jive and wail
    aint too proud to beg
    saw her standing there
    run around sue
    twist and shout
    you’re the one that I want (Grease)
    American girl
    can’t help fallin in love
    I want you back

    shipping off to boston
    sex on fire
    take me out
    like a prayer
    girls just wanna have fun
    glory days
    country roads
    falling slowly
    country roads

    soul sister
    foot loose
    hey ya
    party in the usa
    into the mystic

    sweet caroline
    don’t stop believing
    chicken fried
    come on Eileen
    wanna dance with somebody
    send me on my way
    at last
    shook me all night long
    all night long
    time of my life

    aint no mountain high enough
    funky music
    only the good die young
    Johnny b goode
    oh what a night
    sexy back
    bust a move
    billie jean
    crazy game of poker
    pretty woman
    take me home tonight
    bad romance
    have I told you lately
    have a little faith in me
    build me up butter cup
    twisting the night away
    something in the way
    bring it on home
    crazy love
    save a horse ride a cowboy
    do you love me (now that I can dance)
    I feel good
    forget you
    the way you look tonight
    little lion man
    crazy little thing called love
    you oughta know
    walk like an egyption
    no one

    (Mods, if this is in the wrong place, please move or delete and sorry in advance.)
