anybody else have a killer gig on NYE?

Postby hoytbasses » Sun Jan 01, 2012 6:18 pm

I did a double header last night: 5-6 at a first night celebration, then 10- till at an upscale Italian Restaurant. The first night thing was o.k..... good crowd. but then we blasted an hour down the road to play at the restaurant.

We had a 4 course meal with drinks comped, champagne, .. they actually waited on us just like real people! UN-REAL food!..... The crowd was totally pumped up. They were dancing to us tuning up....... It was non stop. We actually played for a solid 2-1/2 hours. Nobody wanted to take a break.......

usually I'm up at 7 no matter when I get in after a gig: I slept in till 10 a.m........ guess I was worn out a bit.

....and the pay was great!


and y'all?

I took the night off
(actually passed on gigs, said I was already booked).

Stayed home to light fireworks with the family
and then toasted with Martinelli's at midnight.

So yes, I guess you could say mine was killer too.

Oh, that sounds all too familiar!

Haven't been home for years and years on NYE
(we've always set the clock ahead and "celebrate" 12:00 before I have to leave [smilie=cheeky-smiley-025.gif] )
but 2011 was a pretty busy one
so I figured I deserved a night off.
