Re: Camaraderie and hanging out
That's something my band misses. Since our get togethers end sometime after 10 on Thurs, all we manage is a half hour chat and then we go home. When I was younger my band mates had fewer commitments and didn't need as much rest, so we almost always socialised after rehearsals and gigs.
I enjoy the camaraderie, although I've known people who think it's hokey - they just wanted to play the music and get away. Misanthropes :)
