I join a band on Saturday after a positive audition. This is for a cover band with a really nice song list and whose project is to do all sorts of gigs for smaller projects including weddings and all. Tonight, got an email sent to me and the drummer, telling us that the 2 guitarists changed their mind and would form a ... TESLA TRIBUTE BAND! So, bye bye... So here I am since Wednesday, 3 days before the audition where I was given a list of songs to learn, until yesterday, learning and practicing a set list of 19 songs, which includes some really good ones like Rio (which I was delighted to finally be able to play in a band). And then when I email him directly, thinking it's a ploy to get rid of us, I am told directly that it is not a joke, they are really into Tesla, but that they like me and want me for the project, not the drummer (my drummer from my previous band, who is a firefighter and has a crappy schedule, which was the deal killer for them). Tesla?!? I would understand a Journey or a Maiden tribute band, even a U2 tribute band but Tesla?!? What sort of gigs do you want to get out of that? Biker bars? 6 days, about 10 hours total learning and perfecting songs and they change their mind... Oh for Pete's Sake I am tired of this crap. I am seriously considering my teacher's invite to join his 55+ year-old band. They play old school Blues and Surf, but who cares, I am tired of idiots.
