I got a gig!


I gotta gig.... I got A gig! I have mentioned before that I do a lot of hired gun work as a musician. I prefer to play in one band, tour and rock original material but due to the flaky nature of musicians, being a working musician seems to be the best bet for the "now". I still write my own original material, practice and perform daily but the gigs as of late have been of the musical mercenary verity. This week I got a call to play rhythm guitar for a local mega church. I asked them if we could play a few Dead Kennedys tunes and they just stared blankly. (I didn't Really say that, but if I did they would have ben like "whaaat".) [-kong fu panda] I am not much for organized religion but these people are good hearted, I like them. :) Mainly I am a drummer. This week is different because I will be playing the six string axe! I am excited. Wish me luck!
Rock it!

Old high school joke: You know what drummers get on their ACTs? Saliva! *rimshot*

What's the difference between a large pizza and a bass player? A large pizza can feed a family of 4. *rimshot*

Thank you! I'm here all week. Tip your waitresses and don't eat the gray stuff!

(Congrats on the gig - beware of lightning strikes.)

Make sure to wear a suit and please bring an actual guitar... the whole axe thing may freak out some of the security team.
