Re: New band, impromptu show.
I would have done it! In fact about 6 weeks ago our band minus the sax went to see our bass players kid on drums with his band. They asked us to stand in on their only break. We did maybe 5 or 6 songs. Our guitar player whined about it not being his guitar etc....but they also were not my drums, sticks, not the same bass, mics, mix, monitors etc. Sometimes it just shouldn't matter, just play.
