    Then don't post here. My understanding is that they don't like words beginning with "M". Just sayin'. :cool:

    It sounds like a fun gig. Criminal organizations tend to provide high paying gigs and a helluva party in my experience. Mind you, the police may put you and/or your license plate on a list...

    You’ll be fine, just make a mental note of all the exits and..... you’ll be fine.

    Not technically the best start on keeping your mouth shut?!

    I think you'd be safe if you posted this in the 'Hardtime, I've Been Setup, and Knee Repair' forum...

    ... but, here? No.

    I'll take that gig. Send me the deets! BTW- Hitmen rarely miss their targets and hit the band instead...mostly rarely.

  11. The meanest 1 percenter clubs are probably the safest places I've ever played. Nobody messes with The Band. If any women hit on you, just laugh and smile though... no more than that.

    I once played a week long gig at a "family" owned club in Huntington, West Virginia. It was an interesting experience. I will say they know how to have a good time and they are very friendly and accommodating.

    I'm not actually worried about this. I met the kid getting married and seems very cool. he also wanted to play drums on 2 songs and we said sure. he did very well except the disco beat thing he had on gimmie shelter. but after 4 run-throughs he was fine. I'm just happy I get to wear my tux and kill some tunes.... well the payday does not hurt either!

    I will 100% give a gig report on sunday

    I'm guessing the Talkbass cognoscenti might let you off the hook re: pics for the gig report just this one time?

    No way! The food there is probably gonna be awesome.
  17. Avoid playing "Layla," "Monkey Man," and "Jump Into the Fire." Other than that, have a great time!

    Meh. Just don't wink at any girls in the audience and you should be fine...probably.

    Be professional, be friendly and be respectful and it’ll be fine. Most likely it won’t be that different than any other wedding you’ll play.
