Alright guys.. I've got a (minor) decision to make with what I can do with my spare time. As you guys know me from before, I love playing the music I listen to as per Coma Matter and high school (remember playing Last Kiss in Form 4? hahaha good times!). As of now, I am looking around and about to start a band here. First thing I gotta do is get a drum kit, which I am saving up for now(those who are more musically inclined ie Lam and Nick - I'll be asking you guys for your opinions on what kit to get soon) but an opportunity has come up for me to do something entirely different - the Latin/Salsa scene.
You read right. This is what happens when you have a crazy Chilean friend/colleague that is popular in Sydney as a Latin DJ and dancer (you can google him - DJ WillieSabor, probably more hits at google.com.au) and he's trying to convince me to try dancing and be a percussionist for his DJ shows. Lets face it - I am a shit dancer, and even though he said he will train me up without a problem, I dont think I am confident enough to try that. But a conga player at nightclubs? Hmm... lets break it down to a few pro's of doing that:
3) I get paid to go out to nightclubs to play.
4) Its something totally different, which can be pretty exciting.
5) Its fun, and I can already get the contacts for a good start, unlike my first love.
6) Did I mention the hot Australian and South American women? I think I did :)
I am aware that something like this is not very intellectual, and I know that I will get some negative comments for even considering this(and please do not judge me, I'm not that seriously into this). But.. What the heck. Its not going to change who I am - its just something on the side. Its not going to hurt to try different stuff while you still can, right? And its something shockingly different. I mean.. its almost like trying to imagine Lam or Rajen being a salsa dancer(hahah sorry!).
I actually had second thoughts posting this.. but fuck it. So what do you guys think? Would you try it? Penny for your thoughts :)
