Hey, a few things that always work:
- join a church band, those are in most cases just some very basic tunes
- play in retirement community centers, again, nothing fancy, just something the folks can dance to, more like country style but don't underestimate country, they have some unorthodox time sequences like 14 bars etc., so you better practice the songs. And right now it is a non-venue anyway.
- Girl scout cookie sales, especially in the parking lot of Lowe's and Home Depot. The ladies are always greatful for any distraction and additional attention. You may end up having to donate the tip jar for a good cause but there will always be somebody asking for your card. Bottom line is again to play some Kenny G. ish or Lawrence Welk style tunes.

Whatever you do in those occasions, keep it as simple as possible, maybe use a backing track over your phone speakers but in 90% of the time there will be somebody who will tell you he/she needs to dust off his/her MK VI and who played 25 years before life took over and you don't want to embarrass yourself by trying to overachieve.

And chances are you'll get some free cookies :evil:
