So, one of my bands recently got an acoustic gig. We've worked out a setlist of mostly easy 3 or 4 chord songs, Eagles, the band, ccr etc. Also, it's not actually a paying gig. We're busking at a local farmers market. They aren't paying us but we can put a case out for tips. Anyways, it's an acoustic gig so I figured I'd bring my upright bass. I mentioned this to the band and the drummer and rhythem guitar player thought that it was really cool. However, the lead singer (who is also the lead guitarist) thought that it was stupid. Just for clarification he isnt actually the BL like the title says (the band is supposed to be a democracy) but he is a bit of a control freak and a perfectionist and isnt always the most open minded person. Anyways, he's saying that I should bring my electric bass and a small amp. I really dont want to do this cause it's supposed to be an acoustic gig and I enjoy playing my upright but dont often get a chance to perform with it. Also, the upright has that "cool factor" that you just dont get with an electric bass in this setting. Sorry for the rant but I'd really appreciate your guy's opinions on this. Should I give in and bring the electric or tell him to suck it up and bring my upright anyway.
