    OT - Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Yeesh!

    What's with all these gigs this weekend?
    First, I play Blues on Friday night at some dive club in Niagara Falls.
    Second, I am filling in with a Country group on Saturday night private party. And finally, Sunday I am filling in with a Jazz trio during the afternoon at a local lounge.
    Hmm, doesn't anyone else play drums OUT THERE! Come on 2112 move closer!

    Cripes, have I ever! Try a Thursday in downtown Buffalo during lunch for an hour and a half. Load up and travel to Lewiston Buffalo Country club and play a mid-day wedding. Load up and travel to another country club and play an evening wedding. Next day, travel to Oswego college and play a wedding in the mid afternoon. Travel back to Buffalo and play a dance club in Tonawanda New York. All on a half tank of coffee!
    Don't miss it, but the money was awesome!

    Honestly, to be fair, that only happened a once. I was a member of a top 40-dance club / wedding band and our fearless leader keyboardist booked them all thinking no one would mind. It was hell but paid great. After, we may have played two in one day but not very often in if so always on a weekend. Needless to say those days are over 20 years ago!
