i'm a band guy. always have been. and when you're lucky enough to be playing with talented folks, well, there are few things that are as much fun for me as interacting in the moment w a group of talented musicians.
that said.....i am absolutely LOVING this duo thing that Sarah and i are doing. it's been challenging for me getting my acoustic gtr chops back and up to snuff, and it's been challenging in a fun way coming up w material that flies w audiences (we both lean towards "off the beaten path" tunes) and still satisfies us, and then there's how do we rep these tunes with our limited instrumentation.... all fun challenges.
but what HASN'T been challenging is trying to book a duo vs. booking a full band. granted we're not gonna get hired (nor do we want to be) to play some shitkicker bar where bands are expected to play J B Goode and Skynard.....but VFW clubs, Elks, Eagles, wineries, pubs, restaurants....they are all moving away from paying for full bands and instead mainly go w solos and duos.
all this to say....you already have a situation w you and Faron.... so, why not just try to book that? you'd likely score more gigs for better money.
BREAD IS GREAT!
