I finally had the personel. They were all back from vacation etc. Then one singer says she is too busy. Thats ok, I still have two more. Next singer (the really good one) texts us that he cannot continue due to personal problems. Then bass player sez, ok this is probably a good time to check into rehab. Yikes! Im still hopefull I can wait it out or find others to fill the spots. Its hard here in Nor Cal. There is a lack of diversity that translates directly to lack of funk musicians. So, I say to myself, "Amstratnut, why dont you get on craigslist and see if you can find some other musicians". So I do and lo and behold, there is a local popular original funk band looking to replace their guitar player. So Im now in possession of some of their tunes and will audition soon. I still want to do the cover thing but, this may scratch the funk itch for me. What you guys think?
