Today, I played a Jazz gig. It rained, making the tent the band performed under heavy with water. When I stepped forward to play my solo, the front end of the tent collapsed under the weight of the rain, drenching me. FML

You should have continued.. It just made a dramatic entrance to your performance.. Shoulda been all sexy with it. Lol.


Let's be honest, what type of people go to jazz gigs? Old people. Stagediving on a groups of senior citizens would end with OP getting sued.

At least nobody was doing jazz aerobics.

Shouldve kept playing like the rain was part of the show and come out on top. Like j-Lo when her music got cut off at one of her concerts, she was still dancing and singing.

Check the weather forecast before you play. No one likes a gig drowned out by the depressing sound of rain...

At least you were involved in a jazz gig and not a **** gag

Let's be honest, how much do you know about who attends jazz gigs?

38, I take it 6 does not literally think that all the people who attend these jazz gigs are old, but from a stereotypical point of view, which is how a lot if people judge nowadays (me included) you tend to associate music genres such as jazz with the elderly, hence where 6 was coming from.

6, you are stereotypical. Many youngsters listen to jazz too, just that its really little.

I play in a jazz band and I'm 16. A lot of people at my school listen to jazz. Btw, trombone ftw!!

People who think that only old people listen to jazz surely haven't heard John Zorn's Moonchild album, or the Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble (or an insane amount of jazz fusion with genres like IDM). Any old hunched-over, undie-********, brittle-boned, half-deaf grandpa jamming out to Moonchild is awesome in my book. Or maybe it's just that he's half deaf and can barely distinguish what he's listening to. Regardless, jazz is too vast a genre to even stereotype. Those who can do that clearly don't know squat about what jazz is. Not that anyone really does.

That's what I thought, it would've looked sick as long as the instrument still worked okay.

A solo at a jazz gig. I bet that gets all the women.

Bet your picture gets all the women...

Of course if does! Why the hell wouldn't it? I'm quite jelly in fact.

I think my picture has a 50/50 of scaring them off or drawing them closer.

And you would know where women hang, how? Have you ever seen a woman, other than you mom of course..... No

It does, actually. My boyfriend plays trombone in our school's amazing Jazz band, and he takes solos all the time. I'm absolutely sure that he's had more girlfriends than you've ever had. I'm his first.

Your instrument okay? That's all I would care about...

Hopefully he plays a brass instrument!

Well usually in jazz the solos are either bass, guitar or saxophone, so there's a chance his instrument is messed up.

I was thinking the same thing dude!

Seriously? There’s a lot of brass solos too. There are no standards about who solos. Just look at Louis Armstrong.

Makes me think of the movie "Carrie" though it's really not that similar.
