Du hast recht...
Swabbies. I ~love~ the threads, me Bucko.
I got booked to play at a librarians convention. They all had tweed smokers coats with suede elbow pads, beards without mustaches and smoked pipes. the manager asked us to stop playing and see if we could run up the bar tab as it was the only way he would make money. We duly obliged.
i also got booked by a spoons player. I was going to say no. Then he produced an album cover with him and Frank Zappa on it. Being a Zappa fan, I reassessed my position. Good enough for zappa, good enough for me.
and with free drinks on the house?
I just got asked to come to a rehearsal for a play where the opening scene is a band rehearsal. The rehearsal for the rehearsal is actually longer than the rehearsal.
Better than free drinks FROM the house!!!
So, how many of you have played for a free meal at an event, and then been ushered away from the paying guests to the kitchen or a back room for your meal?...
Been there done that...more than a few times. Makes you realize where you rank!
Isn't that S.O.P.??
I knew a guy whose band was booked at a club that didn't allow musicians in the front door. The stage was just inside the front door. As they walked in, the maitre d was all in a dither and told them they had to go around back and come in the basement, go up a flight of stairs, use the elevator, come through the kitchen, walk through the ballroom, then setup on the stage! My friend said, "We come in the front or we go home "! The maitre d refused, so they started packing up! When the reality of their leaving hit the maitre d, he really got into a dither!! Long story short, they always came in the front door after that (yeah they were that good) .
