like-minded - listening - playing chops
I can only have two, apparently.
Capable people come in that like the kinda stuff we like but can't be bothered to listen to our music first. They usually end up trying to get us to do their material.
We get some ppl that like what we like and listen to our music beforehand but can't keep up when they come in and try it.
Some ppl listen to our music beforehand and have the chops to play it but don't want to go down the road we're on. That is admittedly probably due to the Latin flavor stuff.
On rare occasions, a person will supposedly check all three boxes. But I can't be sure of it when they never show up.
I think by getting out and playing the acoustic stuff, we have at least proved ourselves as a viable project and may attract more interest from the other musicians we meet there. I never thought ppl would want to hear me play acoustic. Word of mouth is probably what will end up helping us.
It will probably be a couple of weeks before I can post up some new local talent here because of the Superbowl. I'll see what I can find, though, since apparently a fair number of the ppl we saw at open mics are following us on our social media.
