    Clothing/Blazer for gig??

    I am looking to purchase a blazer type jacket to wear for an upcoming gig. I was curious if you guys knew of any online sources for such a jacket that looks the part. My guess is that they are kind of an older retro type style but lots of people in entertaiment wear such a garment. Billy Joel often wears this type but I don't think I should wear jeans as by no means am I Billy Joel! Anyway, just curious where gig type clothing has been procured by you guys/websites etc. Oh, I will be playing a piano/vocal gig in a country club for a dinner (55+ community) thanks!

    Big envy. Musically, I so wish I lived in New Orleans. Great great musical stew.

    My Brothers,

    In New Orleans, the band leader of our jazz group requires all of us to wear black suits. He wears a different color.

    But for our dance band, we wear these:

    Very interesting. Funny, since I am also a professional cellist, played in some local orchestras, I already have the tux! But I thought that might be overkill, also, kind of embarassing doing setup and tear down in tux although i guess you could lose the tie/jacket and cummerbun (rough word) for that. Also, I've lost 35 pounds PLUS when i got the tux, I seemed be getting ever big so I got it big too, ug. Must swing by GW and see what they have.


    I arrive early enough that I can change from my street clothes (after setting-up my gear) to my "dress-up" clothing (for performance).

    Then, if there's time, I change back into my street clothes to tear down (saves wear and tear on my finery! )

    local Salvation Army, Good Will...any other used clothing outlets...and outlet stores.
    That's excellent advice. You should be able to find exactly what you are looking for secondhand.

    As far as gigwear, S and I usually match but we don't dress exactly alike. We maintain our personal style while showing unity in the band. Here's a sample:
