Ya - when you start young and just kind of hang with people, I can see how you'd never have to audition.

I had a funny audition once - went into it blind on a referral. I had been in a high energy, loud and proud, heavy rock type band earlier, and was used to heavy, hard hitting.

The audition turned out to be for two guys with acoustic guitars. LOL
I didn't have brushes with me - only my normal (for the time, 2B's). Talk about a catastrophe - ha ha.
No matter how soft I tried to play, I think I was the only thing heard by anyone.
It's funny now, but at the time, I walked away with my tail between my legs.

Sounds like you know what to expect though, so it should be no problem.
