when to take the plunge?
at the turn of the year i started up a 4 piece covers band playing mainly rock/pop/blues but with a few off the wall choices too.
We have 25 songs in various stages of learnt/tight
first question is....is 25 songs enough for 2 x 45 minute sets...i know i know...just time them...well its about enough but i think we need at least 30 but the other band members in their eagerness to gig say we have enough!
question 2...when do you decide you are ready to gig? do you rehearse them to death to make sure you are super tight and beat perfect or get them about there and take a punt and get a gig at the local boozer?
whats your thoughts?
