This is a syndrome, happens all the time. The guy who runs the ad looking for musicians makes a point that he's a "professional" in reference to his DAY JOB. Is that supposed to impress the people reading the ad? It makes me think the guy's a nerd or something, just because he mentions it. A few weeks ago I started a thread about bailing before the audition. That guy was another "professional" in the ad, and when we spoke on the phone he said that everyone else in the band was a professional, and they used professional photographers, and didn't wear jeans, etc. What the ****? He was 57 on the phone, and in another ad he was a "40s professional." Professional jive ass. I don't get it. Why do they specify they have "professional" day jobs when looking for someone to join their NON-gigging band?
