    Yep, first gig ever (that wasn't a BBQ or similar). Still on the cherry high. Cool bar venue on Sunset Blvd. We were a trio that included a harpist (of all things). I'm seated on the right. I sat in on two songs from a one hour set. First Gig.png

    Mr Clint, you should stop in at the BAND WAGON Forum and introduce yourself!

    Will do. Guess that's not to be confused with the WELCOME WAGON.

    Yeah, it's about us commoners that slug it out in the trenches of the bandstand.
    Some good stories and, even better lies! :)

    Congratulations. Now I’m confused, are you part of the band, or did you just sit in on two songs?

    Sorry for any confusion. Sat in on two songs for a friend and we are booked again toward the end of the month for a full set minus the harpist.

    @MattyK-USA , I think it went pretty well. It was a blast and we're playing again. The venue seemed happy with the turnout as well.

    Good for you, man. That's terrific. Would enjoy hearing a song some day.

    Great stuff.....well done!

    Fun, isn't it? Sometimes at the time- and sometimes, afterwards.

    Guess it really doesn't change things all that much. I'm still focused on playing better and having the songs well under my fingers.
