Back to It
I left the Park Tavern around 12:30 AM with the clock ticking, knowing I had to run home, dump equipment, take a shower, sleep, and be at my next gig at 8 AM.
The ol' AM church gig. This one was kind of a "welcome back!" service for the main minister and the congregation--the first one since school started, so it was more full than the previous few weeks. The band was back to full strength (plus the horns, plus some more horns to augment that, plus a couple of violins). There were charts and transitions that had been considered beforehand--everything worked!
We played both services…extra money. Yes.
The PM church gig was ok. We were light on singers, and the piano pickup was busted, but we made it through without any disasters. My soprano has a problem (the adjustment screws on the bar behind the right hand are out of wack, and so the F key and the linked key above that--the one connected to the bar--aren't closing together). Fun. Quality time with my leak light and a screwdriver.
Easy week ahead.
