    But when we play again is another story!

    The re-opening with restrictions is just bad.
    The clubs can barley get enough people in to cover expenses, let alone make enough to pay a band.

    Praying for better days.

    Yeah! Mine too, we GTG last night, sans bass who wanted another week of distance.

    I hadn't played my main guitar for like the first 2 months because of the situation/everyone being and home, etc.

    So we GTG and some guys didn't remember the changes, the words, the keys...LOL. I don't think I have the best memory but I was able to recall most of it

    We'd been gearing up for a gig when all hell broke loose. I explained It's going to be real hard to find new gigs (and I wasn't going to chase them) so we could play whatever interested us.

    Well see there ..

    Our monthly pizza gig won't be starting back up anytime soon. He is hanging in there with carry out business but can't seat enough folks inside. Even if he could we wouldn't want to be packed in to that tight space right now.

    On the other hand outdoor gigs like the wineries will be good during the warm weather. Plenty of room to spread out, and people are antsy to get out. Good to have that outlet at least once a month:)

    Ha! Even got a ring from a venue that we booked for the spring but canceled. They wanted us to play this weekend or next. We were so rusty I had to turn them down.

    It would have been a lot of stress. We'll see for the next time.
