Other than Greg, I don't think anyone knows that I am in a band. Right now we are working as a 3 piece, still looking for the right drummer. We have done some Open Mic stuff around town, but got our first show type gig tonight at a party. We are actually opening for a band called Storm Cellar, My band is Adrojo.

The gig went OK. Not our best. A lot of distractions and a technical issue with the guitar players effects pedal. We hadn't planned on needing a protective cage or anything. The free flow of libations made things very interesting.

There's not much money in my local music scene until you are at the very top. Bars pay $400 - $500 around here for Fri & Sat night. For a 4 piece band, that is hardly worth schlepping the gear, let alone playing for 3+ hours a night. We play because we want to play out. I think most other bands are that way too.

I play bass mostly and then acoustic guitar on some songs. I actually picked up bass playing about 7-8 months ago. Kind of a joke with other band mates. I played guitar for 48 years, without being good enough to perform on stage, so I am a bass player.

Just amateur stuff for fun. Holding off on buying that bus and matching jet for the time being.

You should do a video of your next gig and post to youtube. Who knows, might go viral!
