Back in the 70's we played the high school dances (do they even use bands anymore, or is it all DJ?). After paying everyone we all made about $10. There were a few schools that asked us NOT to come back because we were too loud. At one Catholic girls school dance we did, they caught my drummer with a beer - why is it ALWAYS the drummer!!! We had played an hour, they kicked us out, and we did not get paid. But we were LEGENDS! Heck, in a year we maybe changed one member, had different name, and we ended up going back anyway. My daughters play these schools in sports now and when we visit I bring up stories of my rowdy rock and roll rebel lifestyle as a teen.
They just roll their eyes and give me an air leak.
I feel so old....
