    3 musicians died and were at the pearly gates. Saint Peter was there to ask them about their lives before letting them enter heaven.

    St. Peter asked the 1st person "What did you do during your life?" The person said "I was a concert violinist. It was wonderful. I got to play beautiful music written by the masters in several wonderful ochestras. I played for royalty and presidents, saw a lot of the world and made some wonderful friends." ...... Peter said "That's wonderful, we love music in heaven. Please step through the pearly gates ... come on in."

    St. Peter asked the 2nd person what he did during his life. The person said "I played Sax in big bands of the 40's. It was wonderful ... I got to play side by side with some of the biggest band leaders and best players in the world of big band jazz. I also got to be on some early jazz recordings, music that today has an important place in jazz history ... I was very lucky!" Peter smiled and said ... "That's wonderful ... we love music in heaven ... please step right though the pearly gates and come in.

    The 3rd person came to St. Peter. St. Peter said "Please tell me about your life." The man said "I was a bass player in a GB band." Peter asked "What's a GB band?" The man said "Well it's a band that plays cover music at weddings and company functions. I must have been part of the entertainment at hundreds of weddings in my life time." Peter said ... that sounds great ... we love music in heaven. Please come on in ... but could you come in through the kitchen?" ...........................

    Rockers won't understand this joke but GB musicians will be pissing themselves laughing! :bassist:

    General Business. It's a union thing.

    It's also a thing for the humor forum...

    I'd do it in plain view of the guests.

    "The host told me to do it!"

    The joke I heard went like this:

    1st person was a doctor, healed many sick people and made sure people were happy and comfortable before they died

    2nd person was a teacher, taught many children to love learning

    3rd person was a musician, and St Peter stops him and said, "You're late. You can load in through the kitchen."
