Last week my hard rock band played a gig with 4 other bands at this bar run by the top rock radio station in NZ. We played really well and got a totally good reaction. Anwyaz, the owner of the bar (who is also a dj on the radio station) called my drummer today and asked if he could come to our practice and talk about stuff. So he came along, we played some of our songs and then he asked us to play a cover and we played "Warning" by Incubus. We got talking and he said that he wants us to play almost every week (except for weeks when there are special functions on). He will pay us $350-$400 NZ dollars per hour depending on how much the place makes and that could increase if we impress lots of people. He wants us to play mostly originals, but also about 3 covers per nite, and for our next gig, he asked us to play "Praise" by Sevendust, "Circles" by Incubus and "Parabola" by Tool. we said that was sweet cos we already know Praise and Circles. hopefully this will lead to bigger and better things seeing as how they are the official bar of a very popular radio station.
