We're doing one of those tonight, in the rather vast backyard of a fan of my brass band. Lately on Thursday nights, we've been meeting for practice in a local park parking lot without any trouble. But tonight, it's more of a practice/gig. With tips and very appreciative folks wanting to hear us; well spread out of course.I attended a "rent party" of sorts last evening. It was held in the back yard of the leader of the dominant "jazz" band in the area. Just like a park gig, everyone brought there own chairs, drinks & food & a tip jar was there for the band.
