The group in which i play landed a very posh function gig in a five star hotel in Dublin, way out of our usual venue catagory.
For the occasion, we decided to wear a uniform (shudder) so we brought with us black trousers, with rather strikng bright orange shirts, with black and orange striped ties.
In good form we drove to Dublin, in jeans and sweatshirts, arrived at the gig, where we discovered to our absolute horror, that our "uniforms" were identical to the uniforms worn by the bar staff. even the bloody ties were the same.
As we had no choice we donned the uniform, minus the ties, as that would have been too embarrasing, but it was commented on quite frequently throughout the evening
Lesson?: NEVER WEAR A F***ING UNIFORM TO PLAY!!!
