Boyo can get his own gigs, thank you very much.

    It appears that Boyo and his buddies have scared up a gig next month for their instrumental prog metal trio. They play exclusively heavy ass originals. They all have some chops and make a lot of noise for a trio. :D I am most amused and proud. Just got a text asking for the band to use this:

    They are dropping by tomorrow to borrow our tiny bop drum kit to practice with for the next couple of weeks.

    Wonder who gets to haul Boyo's big bass amp around for this stuff?

    At least being a roadie you should get to see the gigs for free.:D

    It's only fair. Sometimes they let me jam with them.

    Favorite topic of mine: Music stuff has brought probably 10 different high school kids through my house and a couple of them have been in my house a lot. Nice young people, decent young people. A pleasure to be around.

    Well that could lead to a promotion. Maybe even a managers position.:D

    Naw, I am trying to shut up more. I do look forward to recording them if they get their stuff together.

    That's awesome!!

    Another benefit of being band manager/roadie is you can keep tabs on what's going on to make sure they don't get caught up in any shenanigans :).

    That's part of the plan. It's a nice bonus that having recording equipment and a little room with a drum kit to practice in allows me to meet some of his friends.

    It's also a dang lot of fun.

    An interesting note: My son plays bass in this deal, the guitarist is a great kid that is in HS band with my son, I know his parents and they are really nice too. The drummer is a good kid, have had some time talking to his dad but the boy is supervised a lot by his grandparents while his dad is out of town. They decided that the kids were playing devil music and barred the rest of the band from coming over. Assumed the thing was done for and now it's back on again. :D

    I don't remember band practices being events that last from 3pm to 10:30pm and involve recording, vid games and pizza breaks.

    So ? ... will Boyo drive the tour bus ?

    For that he would have to have a license.

    Gig is close by, it is a showcase of bands/singers/acts. They only get 15 minutes so as prog metal players, that's 3 songs. :D I will be driving my little truck and carrying a drum kit and a stupid big bass amp. :D Just as expected...

    On the bright side, the other guys paid for the pizza delivery yesterday and they let me have some.
