« on: April 25, 2007, 01:24:14 AM »
Hey troops how many troops know how to play a instrument and please keep it clean guys.I am a drummer and a guitar player and have a band which i play in and gig ever so often when we get them.The band plays everything from 60's to today rock and old country to today country so basically we play it all.The most i ever got paid to play drums to do a gig was $500.00 in a 4hr show which in northern ala thats alot of cash.If you play a instrument and have a band post on here and tell how much you ever made in a gig for one night.

Hey, I played clarinet in 5th and sixth grade. (orchesta/Marching band)
Alto sax from 7th - 10th grade. (orchesta/Marching band/Football halftime shows)
Tenor and baritone sax my junior and senor yrs.(Jazz Band/orchesta/Marching band/Football halftime shows)

I played accordian for at least 6 yrs when I was a kid, I played every year at my family reunion for my Great Grandmother in front of a couple hundred people. A nervous wreak I was every year. I always said I did not want to play, but was talked into it, my mom said she wasn't always going to be around, so I am glad I had the opportunity to play for her. I was the only one who did.

So I can play piano a little as well.

I have an accordian (seriously I do) but don't play it. My sister does a little and my brotehr does play pretty well.

My bro is the one with the musical taent. He was a music major in college.

I can sing half-way decently, though

Back in grade school I played trumpet for the school band, then in JR. High I played Bass, and started taking guitar lessons but for reasons I don't recall sold the base and stopped the lessons.

I've played guitar for almost 20 years now ( :o ) and been in several bands... right now I'm not playing at all, but here's a few of the more recent pictures. This was my last band, called "Lament" and was back around 2004.

LOL, funny you say that... we started out as a Slayer cover band, and then just started writing our own stuff. The Slayer cover band was cool, we used to play about 2 hours worth of old Slayer tunes... nothing newer than South of Heaven. Just the good old oldies...

I had one year of clarinet in middle school. Made the high school marching band as a freshman but I didn't join. Took half a semester of piano in college.
