Gig Anecdotes is updated regularly, and is dedicated to preserving and sharing the experiences of today's working musician. Lots of music stories: wedding gigs, agents, life on the road, recording sessions, gig horror stories.. and all of these funny gig stories are submitted by our readers! Click ADD YOUR ANECDOTE! to add your story.
Submit your anecdote! Please be aware that not all submissions can be posted. Submissions may be edited for grammar, concision, etc. before posting. Please do not include any identifying characteristics (brand names, band names, venues, etc.)
Please try to use good grammar, and include some detail. A well-written and interesting anecdote is FAR more likely to be posted! We do our best to avoid including urban legends, TV scripts, stories that are already posted elsewhere, etc. If you don't have a good anecdote that you personally experienced... book some more gigs! It will happen to you too!
