Today I went to play drums for a band of friends. Well today, I played, mostly originals. Now Im fully employed as the drummer. We have gigs lined up till June. We have 4 gigs so far- A get together sunday afternoon after a funeral, In march we are playing a big festival(supposedly issac hayes and kid rock will be there.) Also we are opening for Loud Speak!!! YAY! Loud speak is a really great Local Rock band. They play alot of shows though and we will be opening for them for a while at different places. HMMM im single now, Im getting over ashley slowly and Im in a gigging band. When you think life sucks, Sometimes it rules. The bassist in the band is pretty good. He can solo! The funny thing is, he has a solo in a song. It sounds good, HMM it was the guitarist idea!! Its original stuff though. The band sounds a little like Matchbox 20 and Me and Jordan(the guitarist) are bringing a more jazzier sound to it. I like it. So anybody have any info about how to get through gigs?? as a drummer??
