plus, we have been given the "thumbs up" to head to my wife's cousins cabin in the middle of nowhere Michigan if we want, so we have that option as well
I just cant fathom being on stage and performing for a parking lot. As a car guy, it might be distracting.Drive-in concerts are the next big thing. Watch a concert fro your car:
Billboard has rounded up a list of drive-in concerts that are happening across the country due to social distancing guidelines borne from the pandemic.www.billboard.com
Man! Dream Gig!we have been playing together long enough that we could probably show and hit it on the fly...we have not practiced since February, but hell, it is just simple swing and blues. I use brushes, and rarely play anything that is more than a simple stewing 2 and 4 at around 100bpm.
We do arrangements of songs that I know like the back of my hand. When we formed the group, the idea was to be able to play at really soft volumes as background noise, on the spot. So there are no wild arrangements; all of the solo breaks are planned out as far as structure goes; we can play for about 3 hours if needed...
well, the other version of that band just played last night. We turn into a cowpunk/rockabilly band that loses the trumpet, and gains another guitar...Man! Dream Gig!
Y'all come on down Oklahoma if you want to play real bad. We are up and running- for better or worse.
And people are partying like it's 1999.
(again, for better or worse)
The state has stopped releasing our Corona #s. And we are counting down to the centennial of our race riot.
caveat: I say "us" but i have been here only ten years.
There is no way live music can die while musicians still live. Getting paid is a whole other thing though.

We did an outdoor, "on the patio" gig, and other than the humidity, and the fact that I was the only one there NOT smoking, it was great. About 40-50 people following the rules...I am glad I had my fan, and mask. I didn't get Covid, but now officially have lung cancer
for some reason, the pics won't up load.
