So we got a call last week from a booking agent we deal with for a few gigs a year. Get this: He's got us first in line for a 6 month performance contract at DisneyLand........Tokyo. ITs a great deal -- all travel, lodging, expense paid, and $1000 a week each. Everyone gets his own apartment, and a transportation pass is included. The deal is done, the band is going, its all set. BUT.... I can't go, 'cause I can't leave my wife and kids for 6 months (baby boy is just now 10 months old, and there's no way I'm gonna miss all the good stuff next year), and I can't quit my job to make less $$$, and have no job to return to... How about that -- we've been at it for 7 years, get an incredible offer, and I'm out... How many times in life are you gonna get PAID to go to Japan? Sorry for the rant, but I'm pretty bummed. But that's what brings me to the important part: We need a bassist to take my spot. I'm not sure where to post this, but anyone interested? IM me, and I'll gives ya the lowdown.
