Had a band director friend that moved to Fla.found gigs playing combo .I'll be retiring very soon. I will be moving to Florida (it's the law) with lots of time on my hands.
At the very least I want to get involved in a weekly ad-hoc 'Friday Night' Jam sessions with new found fellow musicians. If it doesn't already exist, I'll see what I can do to start one.
Also I wouldn't mind getting paid by playing out small early affairs.
As for making a living from it, that ship has long sailed as far a thrash goes sadly (unless you're one of the Big 4)Don't have any ambition to make a living out of it, so it's mainly weekend shows, doing it for fun. Would be nice to play high attendence shows/festivals though.
