Default Re: Playing it Safe or Taking a Chance

Play it safe.
The best band I was ever in (well until 4 of the 5 of us got back together and formed our new band) was offered a gig at a Bike rally 4 years ago almost to the day. Huge tent, massive crowd, what could go wrong? What went wrong is that one band member wanted us to do different things including learning a song we'd never covered before in a very short space of time because he thought it was a good idea. It was the last straw and that gig went ahead but was our swan song as we had decided to split before it even came off. And the fact is, we were hired by the organiser because he knew what we did and he wanted us to do it for his audience.
And if you're already nervous why make things even harder for yourselves.
