Sunday was much better, although I had a pretty rough morning. The other guys in the band stopped by my house to pick me up (I'm just north of DC and they're in the Baltimore area, so my place is on the way). I set the alarm for 8:15 so I would have time to eat breakfast and get my stuff together. I accidently set it for 8:15 pm. I woke up to the dogs barking and our sax player at my door. I had to do the Waylon Jennings bus show, shave, get dressed and grab my gig clothes. We made it on time.

We were on pretty early (11:15) so the crowd was pretty light. But the people there got into it, and some of them knew our originals. I brought my Bassman, but the sound guys had a Twin setup and asked me to use that instead. It sounded good, but I know the Bassman better and I prefer using it.

I had two equipment problems this weekend. On Saturday I brought my wireless unit, which I haven't used in years. It worked fine during the sound check, but it stopped working during the first song. It turns out the new battery I put in was a dud or too old. I bought a fresh battery for iy yesterday and now it works.

During yesterday's gig, my C harp had a reed that stopped sounding and one that went flat in the middle of the song (those damn gremlins pick the worst times to mess with my harps)! I always keep spare A, C and Bb harps because that's the key I use the most. I'm glad it didn't happen during one of my instrumentals.

The replacement trumpet player is really good, but he uses charts for everything and sometimes when he has to switch them it adds more time between songs.

I made good money this weekend, had a good time and I have three gigs coming up in the next week. Can't complain.

Next week we have three public free concerts in Baltimore, including one on July 1 at Inner Harbor (heavy tourist area - with July 4 coming up we should have a good crowd).

One of our horn players has been sick and we may have to find a replacement for him. Hopefully he'll be back on his feet soon. I guess I'll find out at rehearsal tonight.
