A lot of the coastal area bars draw big local crowds during the winter weekends and fairly big crowds throughout the week during the summer months. Bands in this area are usually looking to put their foot in the door this time of year to get regularly booking gigs through the busy summer.
Without much warning, a owner of a local well established bar who knows our drummer asks if we could play this Friday! I guess they had another band cancel or maybe just a random open date. Funny how that works.
Suddenly I'm very aware I haven't played out as a band in about 6 years, realized our lack of equipment to fill a medium sized bar, and remembered how much I missed it all. This should be interesting. Looks like the possibilty for a little extra summer income just for doing something that I love is suddenly a reality. Wish us luck!

Actually, the setlist was indeed fairly simple with only around 40 songs to play with. God bless you Tom Petty.
So other than Wham and Tears for Fears, what kinda music are you playing?
