Back in the early 90s I once did six in one day. I was in a six piece swing band. We did a champagne brekky at Hammerheads, lunch at the Oak and Whale, after work at Oak and Whale, evening at The Empire Tavern, our residency at Club Parnell (12:30am-3:30am) then finished with Club Galatos (4am-6:30am). Our drummer fell asleep mid-song in the last gig! :mrgreen:

5 gigs.... blardy hell!!!
we had 2 down South (Pukekohe way) this weekend and the private last night finished very late (or early - depending how you look at it) and by the time we packed up and got out of there and drove back to the North Shore - me and Mrs Bass man finally crawled into bed at 4:45am!

sometimes I think I'm getting too old for this sh!t at 43.... but I always look forward to the next gig LOL!

But the plus side is the band is now fully booked up until May 2014 :D
