The gig last Friday went quite well, and thanks to all who came out. I had a good time, and those in attendance seemed to enjoy themselves immensely...if their response and tips are any indication. I did sort of blow my voice out during the first set, so that was a bit of a problem. It was during Big Bad Man, and I just got carried away belting out the vocals. I'd guess that had I been playing out consistently before this, it would not have happened. Lesson learned.
I have no other gigs booked right now, and I'm currently unsure about whether or not I will pursue more, and if I do, how hard I'll push. I'm not working a regular job right now, but I am trying to make progress with voice overs and I am in school online. In fact, I just finished my first class in pursuit of my Bachelor's degree in Communications. I'm currently leaning towards chasing gigs in venues I'm likely to enjoy, which generally means a listening room type environment. I have to do plenty of things I don't like in my life; playing music in bad venues shouldn't be among them.
Speaking of the class I just completed, it was my first experience with "Learning Teams." It wasn't horrific, but I wouldn't call it pleasant either. There are a number of reasons I play solo acoustic music, and not having to depend on others is among them.
Guess that's it for now. Y'all be good.
