Default Re: Shifting gears - adding a THIRD band (and a personal challenge)

I really enjoy the diversity, and working on two set lists that are mostly separate. On most weeks we rehearse one night with each band.
I use Google Calendar as well, and so does one of the bands. I suppose it's germane to the conversation that the originals band is somewhat on hiatus from performing while we finish a recording, and if the jazz gigs work out they can supplant some of that activity at least for this year.
