Just got home from a GREAT gig

  1. Hey everyone

    Ever have a really really enjoyable gig where everything goes just RIGHT ?

    Had a trio gig tonight, providing music for a convention. Myself (bass), Guitarist, and Tenor/Alto/Flautist.

    We were given carte blanche to play what we wanted and settled on a mixture of latin standards, standards, Be Bop, Blues and a few ballads. 3 sets , roughly 3 hours worth of music.

    Everything was just ON right from the word go. Lots of space, great sound, appreciative audience, plenty of room to stretch out and improvise.

    Just a fantastic gig and we do it again tomorrow night with a drummer...I cant wait.

    Awesome deal ... if you can, get a small recorder just for the sake of trying to keep some "magic" on disc ... i did that for some old gigs, and I go back to listen just to get amped about music sometimes ... plus, you could maybe .. possibly ... share with TB ... ;)

    I love those kinds of shows.
    you look back at the recording and, ya just feel so gosh darn good about yourself.
  4. Lucky bastard, what a good feeling that is!

    Big +1 on having a recorder up and running whenever possible. Better yet, have video as well. Then you can turn your stellar show into some killer promo material. :)
