    i play bluegrass bass in a couple bands and sometimes sit in with other local talent here and there. i play on saturdays mostly because during the week i am a high school biology teacher and i tend bar on friday nights. i have to because i have a stay-at-home wife and 2 small children. i still get to play more than i should because my wife has a big family and since my wife also sings in the band, we have supportive babysitters. but i always want to play more.

    anyway, i got a call from a local pro who plays here, there and in NYC quite a bit. he called to ask me to play bass for him for a private party in NYC next wednesday......for $500!

    so i'm taking a personal day from work (getting paid) and heading to the city next week to get paid well (for once) to play bass!

    Hi!

    Well, this sounds like it could be a ton of fun. And you even get to play hooky from school. ;)

    Let's hope it's a good opportunity for networking with a new circle of musicians, maybe folks who will hire you for other nice parties and events. I hope your new-found fame doesn't get in the way of your day job. :p

    Yes, please let us know how everything turns out.

    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff

  7. I thought there was going to be a punchline, along the lines of "they're not yours...."
