Thread Name: Jokes about Musicians
Subject: RE: Jokes about Musicians
True story: At a jazz gig one evening, during a break, a cowboy-looking guy with slicked hair, Levi's, fringed leather jacket and boots comes up to the bandstand carrying a guitar case and asks if he can sit in. The piano player/bandleader isn't too enthused and sort of sneers down his nose at the guy. He tells him, "We don't play much Country!"

Well, it's a slow evening and there aren't more than a dozen people in the place so the other bandmembers prevail upon the bandleader to let the guy play. The piano player grudgingly agrees. Well, the guitar player plays like Joe Pass! Absolutely cuts the piano player and plays him under the table. The rest of the band members are having a great time playing with a great musician when, after about three tunes, he makes a move to get up and put his guitar away to leave. "Why do you wanna leave?" the piano player asks. "I guess you'all don't play much jazz, either!"
