I never posted the "I wanna quit my cover band" thread but this would have been part of it.
The issue is EVERYONE IS A SUB TONIGHT
the keyboardist doesn't wanna play with the singer because she never knows the words or forms so a sub keyboardist is booked for the date then the singer bails...... a list of about 13 (chick) singer subs can't do it so they book a dude singer (I THINK guy singers are still allowed here in America) but her doesn't know any of the band's songs. So we have to learn the songs HE knows. Standards such as "Synchronicity 2" and such......
I think the bassist is a soul/blues chick because the last time she played with us she had never heard "Livin' on a Prayer"
BTW this is a cover band that replaced me w/out telling me last winter.
On the up side : I get to use my brand new Ibanez (which a can't play w/ Gwen).

Hope it pays ok at least LOL
yes it does pay (competively for around here). good reply!
It doesn't pay enough to warrant the BS though. I do these kind of gigs (and probably most of you guys do too) mainly for the fun
