I have played churches, dances, concerts, parties, civic events, sporting events,sat in with school music programs, and Taps at funerals. A couple of weeks ago I was a little surprised when I got a request to play a Christmas themed tea party for a little girl. It seems that scheduling conflicts have put the party on hold this year, but I am "booked" for said party next year. For some reason adding child's tea party to my resume strikes my funny bone a little. I'll do it and do my best because you never know what even the smallest job can lead to or mean to someone. I also give props to the family that is willing to hire a musician to make a little girl's tea party a special event.
What is the most unusual gig that you have been asked to play?
