We were asked to play a gig with a few other bands & musicians at a local Mall on the 22nd of January. Its not my idea of a great gig but the pay is OK and its only 2 hours. I am sure we will be playing to people walking passed and not much more than that.

 

Well, today I got word that the TV station I work for is a Media Sponsor for this event. So now a TV spot featuring the bands will run on a bunch of cable systems through Northeast PA.

 

Cool.

 

here's the spot:

Gigs like this I look at as an opportunity for my friends with kids to come out and have fun with us. I while back I bought a bunch of little cheap maracas (basically the egg shakers with a stick) and we bring the kids onstage and let them play with us. Granted those types of gigs feel a lot more like "work" to me, but have fun with it. And that commercial can only help.

yep. We usually do a few church festivals and a memorial day street fair and that's what it is really- Playing for our friends that can't get out to see us often and their kids. Sometimes it's very boring but we try to make the best of it. This mall gig will be easy and we play the mall one other time every year. For the annual american cancer society telethon.

 

That day we usually have a pretty big crowd of supporters. A lot of our bar crowd along with family & friends come out to cheer us on because our singer is a cancer suvivor. That gig I look forward to... even though it is nerve racking being on live TV throughout most of the state.

If it wasn't conflicting with the Steelers game (and how much alcohol i consume therein), i'd say hell yeah, see you there. I'll keep checking your site for dates down the road. SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC!

We have our dates posted up to May I think. We are at the casino usually every 2 months or so.

 

Post and link to your band and If I'm in the area I'll check you guys out. There are a few others from NEPA that post here, one being Matt from M80.
