We play infrequently. I think today was gig #5 for the year.
Anyway we played at a 70th birthday party for the singers' wifes' Aunt. We did 2 sets of about 35min each. All covers, nothing newer than about 1987, because we're all old-ish. The singers 81 year old father did 2 solo sets playing old jazz standards on his keyboard, man he was good.
He hadn't practices for this one as it came about at short notice and didn't have time, but it all came together OK.
We have a bad habit though of letting people come up on stage to "sing". Sometimes it can be OK but other times it's a complete train wreck. And of course since I'm the bass player and 3rd singer it's always my side of the stage that gets the "special guest artist". Luckily todays SGA could actually sing, even though we mostly do guy songs she seemed to carry it off OK (and she was easy on the eyes from behind).
The venue was a Bowling Club (lawn bowls) here in Sydney. The club seemed to like us as they made mention that they were looking to have a band come in sometime and asked for some contact details, so here hoping we get some paid work out of it.
