What's the instrumentation of your band?
For the past 6+ years, I have volunteer taught for a local branch of a national nonprofit called Guitars Not Guns. We give kids between ages 8-18 an opportunity to learn guitar and keep them off the streets. Each child gets a guitar if they take the basic 8 week class. Every kid "graduates" so long as they come to all 8 sessions and we have a ceremony and award each a free acoustic guitar. In the time I've been there, our branch has given out over 500 guitars! We also have intermediate and advanced students. My 10 y.o. is a beginner and has graduated. My 14 y.o. is an advanced player. There are normally up to 40 kids in the class, all on acoustic guitar, and we have some very good local musicians that also volunteer teach every Saturday at a local teen center. We have recently resumed in person classes again. I am the "house drummer", we may have a student on bass, but for the most part, it will be anywhere from 10-30 kids on acoustic, a teacher on harmonica, a few other teachers on acoustic/electric, and maybe 1-2 on electric rhythm guitar. We play songs like Wipeout, Pipeline, This Land Is Your Land, Knockin on Heaven's Door, House of The Rising Sun (killer bluesy version and my older guy does a sweet slide solo), Bang On the Drum (my older one leads the band and sings), La Bamba, some bluegrass songs, and some pop songs. The setlist changes every 6 months or so. We also play a few holiday events and do Jingle Bell Rock, Feliz Navidad and Jingle Bells. We just played a National Night Out for the Marina P.D./Fire a few weeks back, and it was one of the main instructors, the best guitarist, my older son (probably #2 best), my little guy (faking some of the songs because he didn't know them, and standing next to me), myself on drums, and the #1 guy's girlfriend singing, too. Last year, we played a local equestrian center and it was pretty much the same lineup (sans girlfriend), a few more beginners on acoustic, and the harmonica guy. We did a set nearly 1 hour long, then a few of us did just covers, bluegrass and other songs. I am lucky to be able to teach the kids, and more lucky to jam with my dudes. We play this same Festival annually, a big New Years celebration, the Monterey Blues Festival, museums, library gigs, and everything in between!

Our lead singer opens for John Anderson tonight at Renfro Valley in Kentucky. Then he joins us as we play the official after party there at the same venue (different room).
Have opened for big acts before but never been booked to play an ‘after party’, so will be interesting to see what it’s like.

So our gig this weekend was just phenomenal.
Our lead singer opened acoustic for John Anderson, then we played a show for the Afterparty (open to those that attended the concert)
Main gig had 1200 sold out.
Our after party had about 200.

Here is a less-than 2 minute clip. Wait for it…
Headphones recommended,
Wait for it…
Lol

Tonight we're playing in Gatineau (just outside Ottawa) at a big festival. Two days ago i did a "for tv" concert in Quebec City and since it was being captured on cam, I reinstated the Red Glass glitter Broadkasters as Kit #1. After the gig, I had both the BKs and my Stainless Asba kit wich I had used all summer to load. Bks were to go in the trailer to follow to Gatineau and the Stainless kit was to be loaded in the bed of the truck to be unloaded at my house. But the Quebec load out got rained out so we hurried and tossed most things in rapidly and a little carelessly.

Yesterday I unloaded the ASBA set in my locker at home and slept on it. Today I pinned the trailer, drove 1hr30 to Gatineau, only to open the floor tom case and see a stainless floor tom. I was dismayed at the prospect of playing a mismatched kit. On eof the local techs asked me were I lived and it turned out that his wife was passing by my house on the way over from her parents... I called my cousin who lives nearby and gave him the "trick" on how to open one of th ewindows at the back of the house. So he did break in, got the floor out and met the tech's wife who brought me the Gretsch floor. I gave her a Hoodiie with the band's logo for her trouble ..
. and I get to play a matching kit after all...
