    Around here if you're a cover band & want gigs then there is a fairly standard setlist that you have to play. There are a few cover bands that play heavier stuff but they don't gig out nearly as much & often play on the original scene. Sorry to hear things not going well.

    That bass player helped me by not showing up which is essentially quitting. We enjoyed playing without him and there was no anticipated showdown or falling out. I found another bass player that came over from across the street (his brother's house) and played my drums very well. He also plays bass. I'm getting ready to shoot him a song list.

    It sounds like it's difficult to keep a band together Lonny. Sorry! Stay patient, that's the best way scout out fresh talent.

    I know Scott. It's always been that way here only in the 70's and 80's you had to play current rising billboard hits. We played what we liked. Now there is a pretty set list of Classic Rock that they could hear every day on the radio. We have many casinos here that have different rules. I'd like to hit that market!

    Funny how things work out. Hope the new guy fits in and stays in the band.

    Seems like in all aspects of the rock music business everyone is stuck on classic rock & nobody wants to looks for the next big band currently playing in a small hometown. At some point people are going to quit going to go out for live classic rock & then what? The younger generation isn't going to want to hear old 70's & 80's radio hits. If the business model doesn't evolve then it will die.

    I'm not sure if it's different where you are, but where I am, the casinos tend to have modern pop music cover bands. They will supplement that with the occasional classic rock or country band but more often than not it's top 40 bands being brought in.

    Well, aside from the Vietnamese music acts, that is. You'd always have shows if you played that music up here (Seattle area).
