Nothing more than you'd expect Mary. I'm sure they pushed straight past that. They are used to playing together.

I'm just so pleased for you Mary. That first practice is a monumental step. Funny how something apparently so un-noteworthy to non musicians is such a massive deal to us players. I remember my first get together/rehearsal well (ahem, a few years ago), & it still has a special place in my heart to this day. First big step Mary, now for lots of smaller ones, each a little challenge in it's own right, but equally, each a little victory.

Gigging by summer eh! & why not - fantastic! A goal is a great way of adding focus to your band, but don't let it be a negative pressure on you. Sure, welcome it, but park it for the time being, & just soak up the vibe :)

Congratulations Mary! Fantastic stuff!

Playing with others is a true joy, especially with folks you enjoy. And playing out in front of others is quite a treat too. Did you know that only a small percentage of people actually get applauded in their lifetime? You've just begun a journey where you will get applauded many, many times for doing something you love to do.

Go get 'em killer!

That's really cool!

There are a few things as fun as playing music with likeminded people.

Enjoy the ride!

Nothing like the feeling of laying it down for a band. So good. Savor it and keep it up!

Congratulations. Mary. You have earned every bit of what youve got.

Congrats!!

It is fun playing with any decent group of musicians, but to find like-minded people and really enjoy the songs...that's awesome!

That's great Mary. Nothing like playing with others. It's addictive. Next big step is people paying you money to hear you play.

Nooooo !! What? I mean - WHAT !!! That's absolutely wonderful. I am as happy for you as is possible for an insanely jealous person to be (if you follow me).

The practising is so much more fun when there's a gig (and better yet, money too) at the end of it.

WHAT??? Floored. I'm floored. June 22? That's soon! Lip Gloss! OMG! Holy crap! How many sets? Are you singing? I'm not ready for this yet! I'm gonna be a wreck!

We play from 10pm to 2 am so I am assuming about 3 sets. Crazy, right? I'm doing everyone a service by NOT singing. Throwing down a beat is going to be more than enuf work for me! As for the name...don't hold that against me..it was already in place when I joined.

Just remember...this is all your fault...lol

Wow... You girls don't fool around!
There is a band that I have been playing with for over a year now and we still haven't booked a gig.

Wow! Now that's going for it.
Gives you-all a couple months to put together a song list.
Covers? Any originals?
May I ask what your song list is like?

After your posts I can't help but wonder if I might want to gig again.

Hmmmmm Not ready for that.

3 sets? OMG! I need some meds. That's 3 - 1 hour sets. That's 180 minutes! A full 10,800 seconds!

You seem pretty cool with it. I'm a total wreck! What kind of venue? I need my smelling salts!

What have we done?

The name is sexy, I like it.

All covers for this gig. Mostly your typical bar band stuff..Songs from 60s to today. A few examples, black horse and the cherry tree, down on the corner, rolling in the deep, home sweet home by Mötley Crue, brass in pocket, All summer long by kid rock, pontoon...you get the idea. These were all ones we played during my audition plus some others, We will start putting a full set list together when we meet next weekend.

I think I'm still in shock this is going to happen. I'm just going to approach it as simple as possible. Basic beats for everything with a fill thrown in when it feels right. You know...girls just want to have fun!

These are also my thoughts!

I'm fondly remembering my very first public venue... I kept being all "But we're not ready!", and frankly it wasn't until I played the first few notes of our opening song that I finally realized: "Hey, maybe this is going to be good!"... And it was!

Practice till you don't have to think about it, then have fun while you're up there! Shake some butts! Melt some faces! Explode some brains "Master Exploder" style!

Peace,
