Do any of you play live, and what genre of music is it?

I’m currently in 2 bands. We play live pretty frequently...well, at least until this virus thing happened.
One band is an acoustic trio, we mostly do classic rock but mix in some country, rock...and anything drunk people will sing to.
Second band is pretty much all 80s pop and rock. We got 4 vocalists, 2 are females so we get to do some B52s, Blondie, GoGo’s, etc....lots of fun!!
Anyway, hoping you all are well and we can put all this crud behind asap and get back to playing.
Be safe y’all!

Not for a couple of years, but the last band I was in was an all-original Jump-blues/rockabilly kinda band. A LOT of fun! Before that I've played in standard rockabilly bands, a kind of original swampy psycho-billy/dirty blues band (most fun I've ever had in a band - we had an outstanding singer), a hard, slow, almost gothic band which became quite popular, and various indy style bands. In some bands we got to support some great acts which was fun too. Apart from the rockabilly most of the bands I have played in have been weird in some way - mostly in a good way!

Sounds like alot of fun!
 
Definitely missing out on band practice right now for the group I'm in!

We've been gearing up to record an album, too. Gotta keep up with my chops until things clear up. Maybe by then, Universal Audio will release their new DAW that I've been waiting on...

I play in a few groups - one is a jammy powerpop group called Grand Ambassador:


Another is a hip hop / jazz group called global soundwaves:


I also play in a couple top 40 / country type cover bands. My MDMA, Bogner Lagrange, Brown Betty, Flashback x4, and Gauss Drive are the heavy hitters on my board. They are in constant use at most of my gigs with all four groups.

I also write and record my own stuff:

Been a while since I've been in a band. The last gigging outfit I played with, I was singing/ screeching for a local black metal band. Otherwise, I generally just play scuzzy noisepunk

These days I play in an acoustic circle, mostly singer songwriter tunes from the 60"s-70's some 80"s-90's, at age 64 I should probably sell off my battery of high octane amps to younger bucks who could get some use out of them

Played live music n my 20’s in an originals band.
In my 40’s I played local resorts on the Big Island, Hawaii.
Now I play at church on Sundays.
Here’s my latest song, but If you are triggered by religious content please don’t watch as it is a Song I wrote for church.
