so my last band broke up in march and i haven't been playing with anyone since (and actually wasn't even looking) but then i get a phone call out of the blue from a local band...whaddya know?...in need of a bass player. after some discussion with my other half i decided to take the gig. they play quite often and travel so i'll get a chance to see my family when we head up north. this weekend will be spent bass in hand learning their material. it's sort of a hootie-meets-billy joel style. not entirely my thing but i can dig it. anyhoo the moral of the story is if you do right by others the favor will be returned. i got the call because the folks at one of the local studios i've recorded at recommeded me. it made me feel good knowing i made an impression. it seems no matter where you go, someone there needs a bass player.
