First Gig with new band coming soon

We were asked to play for a 4th of July pig roast. I think we should be ready by then our repetoire consists of about 50-60 tunes so far and with the time remaining we should have them all pretty well polished by then. We also have a chance schedule permitting to be the opening act for a Sat night show in June but details haven't quite been worked out.

Looks like it might be a good summer. I like playing private parties and festivals better than beer joints and bars but thats just me.

Good on ya' Stratman! That first possibility might be a good tune-up for the pigroast. I'm with ya' on the favorable alternatives to playin' bar gigs.

Whoa, 50 or 60 tunes! My blues duo has to make do with 25. We just change keys and speed them up a little for the second set. Nobody seems to notice. I hear you about the bars and beerjoints as we only have 2 festivals so far. Sounds like you are going to have a great summer with the new group. Great!

Yup it looks like it's gonna be a really fun summer for you! I love parties and outdoor festivals. It's nice to be out as a change from the dark bar and late hours. Plus, a lot of other people that don't go to the clubs and bars get a chance to hear you and can hire you for more events. Congratulations!
