14, my weiner amp was hard to hear, but it wasn't a song that was heavy on bass (school anthem) and there was other instruments, guitar and piano and a choir, so no body noticed, if i had a decent amp i would have turned it up, but my weiner amp farts when i did that (fixed) so ahwell. i was audible, but not as loud as i like. but i guess it's all life experience.

Uh, lessee, that was freshman year, so I would have been 15.
first gig for money was when i was 17
last summer, when i was 14
when i was 10 i did my first gig it was a talent show i played on guitar for school. It was soo funny i played "laid" by james on acoustic guitar. The teachers got soo pissed because of the lyrics, they let me finish the song, but after than they told me off. then about 2 months later in the summer i was in a band nd i played bass and we hit it off. It was a cover band we played a few parties. It was a van halen, RHCP, and dave matthews cover band. Of course i got into groups like incubus after that and i quit. and that was when i first got my fender p-bass. i had a hondo p-bass at the time. now im 16. Playing in a band that sounds like hoobastank and incubus lifes good now. Especially with the MTD kingston 5 and my 79 stingray. lifes good.
My first bull****e gig was when I was about 23
...then a hiatus for a while...
then first proper/paid/serious gig when I was 28.
