At one point a band I was in started playing every night of the week but Sunday and Monday. We were fresh out of College, all living together, and had cheap rent. However, it still really wasn’t enough to live. Part of that may have been due to where we were living though. The Capital Region of NY is expensive. The music scene in the area in the early 2000’s was lame o Rama, and although we built a small following, it was never enough. On top of that, we were all working full time, well, most of us had from November ‘till April off due to being seasonally employed. It was rough when the work started back up, and we had to be there at 6am! Then, one of the guys wanted to get his Masters, which I ended doing as well a few years later, and my girlfriend got prego (it’s in there), so I needed a better job with benefits, and it all slowed down. A few gigs a month. Life happens when your making other plans. Now, I work full time as a mental health therapist, and perform in two bands. One is local, the other is regional. So, I guess, have at it man, and see what the universe has in store for you!
All's well that sounds well.
