    So, I have some unexpected personal issues to attend to and can't make gigs on June 4th and 11th. Both are 3 hour gigs, 8-11. I believe pay is at least $125, maybe a little better. The band is 80s Undercover:

    80's UnderCover

    95% 80s stuff, guitars tuned down whole step, some stuff in different keys than original. I have some chord charts for a lot of it in MS Word format. None of it is all that difficult. The 4th is at Coopers Riverview in Trenton, the 11th at The Roost in Cream Ridge. Band is all direct with personal in ears but a monitor setup can be used, BL and drummer both have one.

    Please PM me as soon as you can if you're interested.

    So, posting again to bump the thread, and add a bit to the story.

    My issues have me considering taking a break from gigging. I'm feeling like I need to make time for me. This band has been playing 2-4 times a month pretty regularly, though the guitarist is leaving the end of this year cause he moved pretty far away (so if you can bring a good guitarist with you the BL and drummer will be thrilled!). There are something like 18 more gigs on the books currently, but will likely be more if a replacement guitarist is found.

    The BL in this band plays solo and duo 4-8 times a week. He's an older (early 50s though doesn't look like it), very experienced singer and rythm guitarist and he can get work.

    If you can bring a replacement guitarist with you I would step aside, if not just for the benefit of two of my friends, let alone taking something off of my plate.

    And send me a PM, I'll send you my cell # and we'll talk.

    Thanks TB :)
