Topic: Finally a good gig!
I have been doing my solo acoustic gigs for a few years now. Played lots of partys and small bars for free,small donations or tips. And thats cool I had a blast and learned from each one of them.
Last fall I was asked to play a political party get toether for a friend that was running for office. I'm not really into politics all that much but I do like to play out when given the opportunity. And it was being held at a fancy restaurant/bar on a nearby lake. I donated my time of course, but made out really good on tips and played for about three hundred people. That was huge for me! I had an awesome time and met some new people and the gig went really well.
As I was packing up the owner came over and asked if I would like to come back to play for them sometime and
I said sure, and that was the last I heard from them. Until today!
I'll be playing every Friday night till after labor day on the dining room, deck area from 6 to 10. And to top it off they will be paying me more than I ever made playing before! I'm very excited and a bit nervous too. Hopefully I can pull this off!
Any advice from you guys out there would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
