We're finally close to being ready, and have our first gig with our new singer and drummer next weekend. We weren't really looking for bookings yet; this came about because we played a few songs at a jam, and the owner of the establishment immediately asked when he could book us.
We're doing mainly songs that we all love, mostly guitar oriented songs. Geezer type stuff! Allman Bros, ZZ Top, classic rock and blues. I'm just hoping our music is accepted by the crowd. I know we'll have fun, even our practices have been fun!
Wish us luck! ;)

Don't worry about the audience. The owner would have not made the offer if you wouldn't be a fit with his customers/guests.... Rock 'em my brother!

Thanks everyone! I wish I was more confident in our "readiness", but I also know that most of the crowd won't notice the little "mishaps" that are going to occur. I probably just worry too much, but more about others in the band, than myself.
I'm retired now, I can practice all day long! ;)

Well, for now, I don't have to be concerned about being ready, because they cancelled it on us, just a few days before the gig. "Something came up!" but they didn't say why they "couldn't do it this weekend." I may head over there tomorrow night and see if someone else has our spot!

We're scheduled to play there again on Sept 28th. At least that'll give us a little more time to "get ready."
Bummer!
