    Not in, but I've known a few hornplayers and a drummer who is...and they're all somewhat um...not happy about it. They say they lose more shows from it than otherwise.

    But then, none of them are LA, NYC session or say Nashville guys.
     
  3. Nope. Not me. I've heard legends of miraculous things done by the Musician's Union in the distant past. But no one in living memory has actually seen these miracles. Its a matter of faith.

    :D
    Yikes, sounds like a religion! Maybe the Musician's Union has only been around long enough to attain cult status?

    Ok. Carry on.

    Can't get a touring gig out of Nashville without it, but I'd wait until you are presented with that problem, THEN join . . .
