For those who gig regularly, how often does your band rehearse? My current band plays out 1x a month and wants to rehearse every week. This is a deal breaker for me. I don't get paid to rehearse and I do my homework so this seems unnecessary. IMO a full gig schedule for pros or semi-pros means rehearsal isn't necessary at all unless you're adding new material constantly. I was in a very successful cover band for 7 years and we didn't have a single rehearsal. You did the work in your own time or you'd be replaced. My church gig was the same way, show up knowing your part. Am I out of line with my expectations? How much does your band rehearse and what is your opinion about it?
