I’m a “hired gun” today at the Park City Arts Festival. I play with a rock band on the big stage at the top of main street at noon.
I’ve played gigs with this band off and on for years, though I haven’t played with them lately. They sent me a set of CDs for me to review the tunes we’re playing. I checked the tunes out and made my notes for the gig so I’d be fairly prepared. Then they sent me a revised list and 3/4 of the tunes on the new list weren’t on the CDs and I haven’t heard them. So now, rather than being somewhat prepared I’m going into 3/4 of the gig with NO idea what I’m playing.
