    I guess as a indication of the economy I dont have a new years eve gig yet this year (Im sure ones gonna come though just bottom picking for this johnycome student lately).

    I have never in the last 12 years of playing sierously NOT had a new years gig booked 2 weeks before and usually its a month and then something better comes and Im finding subs and......


    Any one else a little bummed about this trend?

    My band has had New Year's Eve booked since September... Early last month, we had found my replacement, (I had announced my intention to depart, amicably, back in August), so I was going to be sans gig... On Tuesday, after a month of gigging with the new bassist, I was asked to rejoin due to irreconcileable creative differences... So I again find myself with both a New Year's Eve gig and a band for the foreseeable future...

  3. I'm there too, Andrew. My first NYE off in fifteen years. I'm kinda hoping one does'nt come in really, it would be nice to spend it with my wife for a change. I've got gigs Friday, Saturday and Sunday between christmas and New Year, so that's not so bad.

    We were asked to do a NYE gig but declined, and Im not the least bit disappointed.
     
  5. I don't do New Year's Eve (bah! humbug! etc.) - think I'll just stay at home and have an early night (for once!) - the New Year will happen anyway - irrespective of what I do!
