Our band is playing its first show in the main park of our college town this saturday. Any tips?
In order we played:
Sunshine of Your Love
Blues in A
Original song 1
original song 2
maggot brains- funkadelic
Blues in A again
The band was me on bass, two guitarists, and a drummer. One of the guitarists played hendrix REALLY well and for only playing with him twice before the show it turned out very well.
We also had a homeless guy come up and play harmonica and cowbell for most of the show which really helped out. The guy was having a fucking blast which helped set the mood just right. Hes a guy everyone in my college town calls "Pirate" because he talks like one sometimes, and he wears an eyepatch all the time. I felt good just for making that guys day.
After one of the songs though, so cops showed up and started hassling him. He came up to me afterwards all scared and was like "man who the fuck called the cops on me? I didn't hurt nobody, why the hell are they hassling me?" Apparently they told him not to go on stage anymore, which made me furious. But we told him to come back up and the cops never said anything.
cliffs: played some hendrix and some originals. had a homeless guy for our front man. cops came, hassled, but didn't do shit. all in all a very fun day.
Sounds fun. wish I was good enough to be in a band.
practice, and find somebody to play with.
I do. Just started playing 2 months ago.
Here's some pics of the bums. Pirate with the cowbell, and some other bum on the jimbay. I'm the guy on bass, and the guitarist in the middle was the one busting out hendrix.
