Here's a hypothetical... Say you are offered a touring gig with a band of which you aren't entirely fond of their music or sound. For whatever reason you don't like their sound but you decide to take it, it pays something and you could use the tour as a means to network, and most importantly the band likes you.

Does real-life work this way? Can you get valuable connections with other musicians while on tour drumming for a band you don't entirely like to play for? Is it worth it, do you then use those connections after the tour is over and play for the band you like better? Or, do you pass initially and just keep looking and auditioning till you find a touring group you like?
