Maybe to you. You expect ME to play with these people?
My "ideal" would be if I could do every gig with the "Too Hot For Snakes" line-up (myself on 6 and 12-string/racked harmonica/lead vocals, Wendy Walker on fret-less bass/harmony vox, Emaleigh Katelyn Hall on hand percussion/harmony vox...and if possible The Amazing Valerie on electric fiddles/harmony vox)...but it's hard finding enough decent paying gigs locally unless you play Schlock-Country or SRV-esque pseudo-bluz...so I gig solo a lot.
Now that my kids are about grown, as are Wendy's, we are discussing going back out on the road, along w/ my daughter and, if possible, Val and make another go of it, but that's still a couple years in the future.
Fortunately, our genre of music doesn't have the shorter "shelf-life" of Pop and Rock 'n' Roll!
