I have an Irish pub band, with whom I play mandolin, bodhran, and sing. We had a gig on Thursday the 14th, and three each Saturday and Sunday. Had a lot of fun, drank a few (yes, only a few) pints of Guinness and a dram or two. Took the day after off work (as usual) and rested up. I may be getting too old for this. :party:

St Pat's is for pipers like Christmas is for choral groups and brass players: the Season Of Gigs!

There was a nice article in a local paper a while back about a couple who have a choral group, and about how hectic the days leading up to Christmas are for them, and how they've worked every Christmas Day for decades.

"You even work on Christmas Day??" the reporter asked.

The vocalist responded, "Nobody wants Carolers on December 26th."

And nobody wants bagpipes on March 18th.
