Over the past few years I’ve had the pleasure of playing my songs with 1 or 2 accompanists and with bands. It has been both enjoyable and frustrating.
The frustration is that I am typically giving a house band a hand-written chord chart or simply a key. You learn a lot about house bands at that point – sometimes we sounded great – like we had rehearsed. Other times.. well.. not so much so.
I am now formalizing a band project for some recording and future gigging. Details can be found here. If you know of players who might be interested, point them here.
