I've been recruited by a couple of my muso friends to sub for their usual bassist at a house party gig this coming weekend. When they asked me I was kinda surprised cause I didn't know people even threw house parties with live bands anymore. It's just a trio, no gear other than combo amps and a P.A. for vocals only... pay is gonna be a lot less than my usual minimum but we'll get beer and food and be done playing by 9. I haven't done a gig like this in a LONG time (20+ yrs) but I'm actually looking forward to it. By the time I shed on the tunes, etc. I'll hardly make a dime on the gig but the material is decent and the players are excellent. Beats sitting at home that night which I would have been doing otherwise. Does anyone else still play house parties on an even semi-regular basis?
