Likewise, today's was the last booking in my diary.
All the best finding some more gigs, Derek, and in the meantime you were mentioning that your electric skills need a bit of honing: here's an opportunity.
Yeah, I can sympathise with that.
Sadly, paying gigs for live musicians seem to be getting less & less. Not only are many closing, under pressure of the current economy but many have caught on to the fact that "open mic" nights will fill a venue, for very little or no cost; (I'm not knocking open mic's; I think they're excellent platforms for new players)!!
I also get really p****d off with venues promoting "live" entertainment with what is actually nothing more than backing track karaoke singers (but don't get me started on that one)!! Luckily, I have a good agent who keeps me reasonably busy.
Good luck and I hope your date sheets fill up soon
