Same for me too although we're not up to gigging speed yet with my new band. We do practice once a week though with some exceptions. Trying to get the last 10-15 songs to round out our 45. Once we're into that, I would expect and average of 1-2 rehearsals and 1-2 gigs per month.1x/week. gig once every few months.
Band 1 is with a local legend type player who is 16 years older than me. After nearly four years in this band (and 14ish years off and on in other groups) he STILL pulls out tunes I've never heard him play before (yes, I am expected to learn them on the fly - mostly old school blues or rock so it's not like freaky bop jazz or anything, or at least very often). The bass player in that band is 65 and has been playing bass (the same bass!) since 1961, and has toured the world with a few groups. He knows a couple tunes as well. Honestly, between those two guys I have no idea how deep the song bank actually is.wow!how many songs does band 1 have in the song bank?must be pretty diverse,with not adding anything in so long.
