i just finished my first solo gig this weekend. i usually play with a band, but i got asked to play a 2 hour solo show this weekend at a local hot spot... and they paid me for it! totally wasn't neccessary :)
i'm pretty psyched about it... i'll try to get an mp3 up of one of the songs sometime soon.

Mar 24, 2005 02:30 pm Just a question...how did the other band members react to your doing a solo gig? I've been thinking about doing some coffeehouse folky type gigs by myself, but I don't want tthe rest of the lads to think I'm steppin' out on 'em.
Mar 24, 2005 02:35 pm heh, make it sound like something they wouldn't want to do anyway. heh heh

a coffee house isn't really a band setting to begin with. a chance to do solo work is an awesome opportunity for any musician, and really teaches you what your strengths and weaknesses are! i think if the band respects you're abilities they should be ok with it. my band knows how much i love them all. this just popped up! they all came to support me :)
Mar 27, 2005 08:34 am I agree Drake, and I am quite sure that my bandmates will support me if I choose to do some solo work. They have already helped me record some parts for my solo CD. Me and one of the guys are doing a bluegrass duet gig for a local benefit. It's all about supporting good music.
Mar 29, 2005 02:25 am well... i finally got ahold of an mp3 of the concert... what do you find? a CRAZY amount of background noise :( i dont know where it came from but it kills any quite part. i can't even EQ it out cause it is too broad on the spectrum.

hope you all enjoy! :D
