    I have, in the past, dressed up for a Halloween gig, but not in some years.



    Once year, when I was playing mandolin and guitar in a bluegrass band, we all dressed as KISS (I got to be the Gene Simmons character )...wish I had a photo, it was pretty bizarre!



    Worked enough KISS songs into a bluegrass format to do 2 or 3 per set.

        Me, too...nothing I'd rather do than post some humliation for all to see! (the band wives/GFs came up w/ that fabulous idea )...



        So, has nobody else dressed up for a Halloween gig in here?

          i would think everybody has dressed up for halloween gigs, maybe not as a single or duo, but in a band. that is one of the big nights of the year.



          i decided to get a ringmaster outfit for this year since i am going to be master of ceremony. long tail coat and oversized tophat. of course it will be in a gawdy gold sequin to stand out like a sore thumb

            One year we dressed up as doctor and nurse. I drive a white mini-van and we put a small red cross on the dash. We pulled into a gated retirement community where the guard always asks for ID and checks for clearance before raising the gate. He saw us in the white van, with the red cross, me in blue scrubs and Leilani in an old-fashioned nurses outfit, and before we got to the guard house he had the gate open and was waving us in. I guess he thought it was a medical emergency instead of a musical emergency





            Here we are in the same outfits, but at a different party (we usually do more than one each year - we give the retirement developments a discount if they have their party early).

                I have lots of great costumes, but only a few that I can wear on gigs. It's tough to play guitar and sing dressed in my gorilla suit.

                  A buddy of mine's band did a Halloween gig dressed as a zoo, once and the bassist did her's in a gorilla suit...those big plastic hands weren't too difficult for easy bass lines.

                    i don't think i've ever been this excited to wear a blouse (i'll doing my best keith richards)

                      I'm trying to come up with a costume idea for an outdoor gig this year... it could be snowing by the end of the month.

                        It's probably a stretch for me just to disguise myself as a musician...



                        The last time I did play in costume for Halloween, I wore a monk's robe and I'd probably throw it on again if the need arose. Actually, I picked up the nickname 'Monk' at one time, not because I'm religious or anything but because I'm nearly as O/C as Adrian Monk.
