Right now I am in three bands: Modern country, classic rock and blues. The last year or so I have been able to make it work because none of the bands played more than once or twice a month and I rarely had any conflicting dates. The rule has been that whoever books the gig first gets the date. The country band recently hired a booking agent and now we have 6 or 7 gigs booked a month. So far the country band has had to arrange a sub for 4 of the upcoming gigs. The rock band has had to get a sub twice. That's not really fair to either band. With a sub, you really aren't putting on your best show. The rock band doesn't gig as much, pay as much, and is not as good, so I've decided that after this Saturday's show, I'm going to talk to the leader of the rock band and tell him that I'm leaving and they need to look for another drummer. I'll play any gigs already on the books until they find someone else. I've never had to quit a band before. They have aways just broken up after a few years. I'm not looking forward to the conversation. Anyone have any advice to help make it a little easier?
