Today I quit my band. I was not really happy to do it, but over the past few weeks, things were getting weird in e-mails and not getting fixed. The band went from a husband and wife doing acoustic stuff, to a trio with their daughter singing, then they added a lead guitar player, then a drummer, and then me. So it has evolved from something small into a rather decent band over the period of about a year. We'd been getting some good gigs, and getting paid as well. But I think that the original guy was trying to be a bit too controlling. For example, I'd send out a suggested playlist, and the e-mail would get ignored. I guess he was the playlist master. It was weird - nobody responded at all, and I got some verbal replies later that day like 'Ooooo...you sent out a playlist. That was pretty bold." Weird stuff like that. And last weekend he brought out 2 2x15 mains (about 5' high each), 2 1x18 subs, and 4 15" wedges plus the rack and mixer for a small backyard party on a small deck. I loaded up my stuff and all the drums and left - and I got a bit of guff for not hanging around for who-knows-how-many trips to take it all back to their house. So, I'm not mad or bitter. I am just a bit disappointed. These guys are all really decent musicians, and a couple are good friends now. I just felt that it was not fun for me, and if it is not fun, it is not worth it. There, got it off my chest. Cheers!
