Just got a new job this last week, I find I am extremely busy... often working 13 hour days. This is just temporary until the end of November when the courses that I am teaching, in my original job, end and I transition to just having one job again. However, in the meantime, I have a strong feeling something has to go. So I am contemplating quitting one of the bands I am in. The first band is Dick Cash. I've been with these guys quite a while. I really enjoy the personalities of these guys, but I am beginning to find the music, roots rock and rockabilly, limiting to my development and boring. This band takes up alot of my time as I book the vast majority of the gigs, organize the rehearsals, update the setlists etc etc. Quitting this band would be a big move as I am an integral part of the band and we have developed great relationships over the last couple of years. As people they are more fun to play with, the music... not so much. The other band is a classic rock band that I joined in the summer. I dont do anything except play the bass, which I prefer. They are nice guys but I definitely dont have the same chemistry with them as I do with Dick Cash. These guys will not leave the house for less then $100 per man, which is nice. Often with Dick Cash we are doing "showcase" gigs where we dont get paid much at all. Or we play for the door which is hit or miss. In the classic rock cover band, the variety of music does challenge my ability and I like that. This band is all about pleasing the audience and making money. I prefer that aspect of it over Dick Cash which is more about being an "Artist" and playing more and more originals. So to summarize: Dick Cash - money isnt that great, its more about Art - bandmates are really great - lots of work involved for me - have a longer history with them - As people they are more fun to play with, the music... not so much. Classic Rock Cover band - money is very nice - relationships are okay, but not spectacular - only been playing with them a few months. - my only responsibility is to play the bass = less work - they are all about pleasing the audience, which is important to me - the music is more interesting and challenging to me and likely will be better for improving my bass playing skills. I feel fortunate to be involved with both these groups and would be happy staying with either one. However, I may have to make a choice and drop one. Given this information which would you choose?
