Topic: Played bass today at church
It went well. It's been a long while since I have played with a band. I've spent the past few weeks playing with them to knock the rust off my knuckles. On Thursday they taught me how to tie into the personal monitors. That was helpful.
Anyway, after a lifetime of on or behind stage activity, I had a first happen. I thought I had longer than I did to have some bathroom time, and I wound up having to run through the sanctuary and up onto stage. The band members laughed and backstage after the first set, apparently they were talking to each other through the monitors saying how funny it would be if I ran onstage with a huge string of toilet paper stuck to my shoe.
Everyone laughed it off. It was one minute late, though, and that's not a good thing. Before the second service, I literally stood backstage between the curtains so that I would NOT miss a second cue on the same day.
