It's been real busy. I found out that I will still be working in the elementary level, but in general music. I have spent the last two days cleaning out my classroom and getting my stuff out.
I had a gig this Saturday (I won't say who I played with.) where one of the band members walked out on a gig. For those of you who don't know, that's a no-no. That's like walking out on your job. You just don't do that, no matter how much of a jerk the leader is being. In this case, the leader was in the right. We were told to be ready to play at 6:00. This musician was a couple minutes late. The leader told him his pay was docked. The musician got mad and left. Luckily, there was someone nearby who could do the gig last minute.
The leader made it very clear to everyone about the call time. The only thing the leader may have done wrong was say this to the musician in front of the entire band. That should have been a private conversation. Based on the reactions of other musicians, no one was surprised when it happen. Both have hot tempers. However, the musician should have been ready and just played the gig. One thing to learn from this: Don't let your frustrations cause you to screw up. It's best to stay calm.
