Back to the Grind

The CD is done and now I need to book gigs.  It being the band I started leaves me with the responsibility to book the gigs.  Mind you that with everyone in the bands schedules booking becomes a challenge of its own.  It would  be one thing if we were all young, single and free!  But most of us are married with kids and jobs not to mention that the two fireman in the bad work on different shifts.  That is the challenge of booking shows.  Occasionally some member of the band can’t make it.  If we were a baseball team the regular Poochamungas would be the starters and the fill in guys would be the bench.  Sometimes you have to go to your bench.  Drummers, guitarists, etc.  Sometimes you have to make a few more calls as the bench is busy as well.  But you have to book the gig and the shows must go on.  Sometimes I wish I had a booking agent but I’m told they come with their own set of problems.  So the grind will continue.  For now our next show is our Schubas CD release party on Sunday, September 29th at 2pm with Koo Koo Kangaroo as the opener.  Gonna be a great time so stop on by,.
