    I have a gig next week with a contestant of Nashville Star. It's a "hometown" type of gig. Tickets went on sale today and sold out a 1000 set auditorium in under 30 minutes. It should be a Rockin' gig with that many people wanting to see it!! The film crew from the show will be there as well. It's a good thing I'm just the bass player, don't have a TV face.;D

    Anyone seen that show? At least there is a live band playing.

    That's killer. It's a pretty rockin' show and there has been some talent. My singer always watches it and I have caught it a few times. The crowd gets into it and the host is hot.

    That's awesome!

    How do you learn tunes for a gig like that? Do you get together and rehearse or just play off of lead sheets?

    Yeah it should be fun!! Jody sent me a CD of tunes to learn. We are rehearsing Wed. night and the gig is Thursday!! :eek: Plus the camera crew is going to be with him the whole time including rehearsal. They better keep quite.

    We are not performing in Nashville, it's a concert in his home town of Arkadelphia, Ar.
