  • THE DRUMMERS GIG REPORT THREAD...........

    In an effort to add more to the drummers forum here on Harmony Central. Im going to start this thread. Its intention is for us as drummers/percussionist, to share gigs/pictures/happenings/sessions/clinics, and all around fun of being in a band, or even filling in with other groups. It does not matter how big or small you gig is...the important thing is that we all share........everyone can learn something, no matter how big an artist they are........I will add as gigs come and go, and try to keep up.....



    Lets keep it on topic everyone!!!!



    Peace.

    Awesome, Les! It's great to be able to read everyone's gig updates. Great idea.



    I've had over a month off from my cover band, and we recently decided we're going to end it at after December. So our next show is 7/21 and I'm betting we'll be swinging for the fences. Better stock up on sticks....

        This was from a couple of weeks ago. Subbing with that Jazz combo on a Saturday night! They never rehearse, just gig 'on the fly'. The leader (guitarist on the left) is good at leading us through stops, changes, endings, etc. Always a fun time!


        Good playing can hide a crappy drumset, but even the best drumset can't hide crappy playing.

            From a multi-band show a couple of weeks ago. Headlining show next Friday 7/13 where we'll debut our originals!

            Yeah, I know you can't see me. But the drums look good.

                      It will come .......trust me.....we have just started as a band so to speak...formed in nov of 2011. Started gigging in Feb 2012, and we are about 10 or 11 gigs in. Another gig scheduled in a couple of weeks. We did play on july 3rd at a rodeo....didnt have my camera....if you have ever been to a rodeo lately...there is some good sights. We showed up around six to set up and sound check....its 102 outside. We catch a break and they tell us to set up inside the FFA building. Its a nice metal building with big doors at each end, windows at the side. About a 40x100 size with ceiling fans. The entrance door at the front has a big sign that says....Ice Cream Inside, ....I couldnt find any. We set up and sound check, and surprisingly it doesnt sound half bad in there for playing in a tin can. We close the doors for an expected start time of around 9:30. We take a walk around, grab a cheeseburger and drink a cold one and shoot the breeze for a while, at the same time taking in the sights. Head back around 9:15 to prepare to go. Bass players remote dumped when he installed a new battery...small wire broke. Grab a cable and good to go..... Around 10:15 we get the nod to play, the crowd is sparse. We played around three sets, Other things going on at the same time as the band, no beer wagon, or crowd. Head honcho checked in on us from time to time, and apologizes for the lack of crowd....but seemed happy with our group. Only good thing about that night was we still got paid no matter what the crowd. Dead tired the next day for 3/4 the day...funny how the heat takes it out of ya and you dont realize it.....next gig I will have pics!!

                        Score +12 for the rodeo gig (never done that!). Have to check with Big Daddy to see if more points need awarded..

                        (wife always wanted me to do a circus gig, traveling on the circus train and all)..rodeo gigs? Got to be some serious points there.

                              Doing a private party with an old band and everyone is pumped and onTime! We load up my kit and the PA and head out.Got to the place in penty of time,but the guy with the key is late.So a few phone calls later ,he's late but on the way.So I back the truck up close and lowered the tailgate and band just kinda hanging out.The guest start arriving ,still not in.We were the surprise ,because the main guy booked us last minute.Anyway we are the center of the action all of the sudden.When one girl about 13ish,I'm guessing,ask what kind of music do you play.Quickly I told her we were a Hanna Montanna tribute band! Her eyes light up and she was smiling big.Then all of us in the band burst out laughing.She gave me the evil eye all night.Any way the night before we had worked up Play That Funky Music,and it sounded really good.Well they had this big cake and they where standing in line.We busted out with Funky music and not one person moved.We were stunned.It just shows that funky music ain;t got nothing on white cake.
