I was thinking about this the other day in another thread. How often does your band get together to rehearse/practice/learn new songs/etc...? What functions does practice serve for you, aside from the obvious pracice/rehearsal aspect? For me, and my band- we practice twice a week. Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 5-ish until we get tired. We usually get through the set once, maybe run through a new song, learn a cover, drink a few beers, grill out. Practice is as much of an excuse to get together with the guys and have fun doing what we love doing as much as it is "work" for the band.
