No, I wasn't graduating. I had an all-day gig yesterday, playing for 3 graduation ceremonies (for Griffith University, at the Gold Coast). Most boring gig, ever (so far). We had a sound check at 9:30 (about 15 minutes, all up). We played from about 10:15ish - 10:55ish, and a piece as the musical interlude (about 3 minutes), at about 11:40. Repeat the last 2 steps at 2:15ish and 6:15ish. So, less than 3 hours playing... More than 5 hours not playing... We were informed in the initial email that there would be lots of break time. Accordingly, I took along a book, my phone, and my phone charger - all of which I used - plus ear phones, which I left in my bag. The other players didn't bring anything to do in the break times. I read a lot of my book and played a lot of games on my phone, as well as texting and checking Facebook a lot - I would have gone totally insane without these things.
The actual playing bit was easy. On one hand, much easier than playing for a wedding (no 'it has to be perfect' pressure). However, just before we started playing, we (and all the soon-to-be graduates) were told the ceremony (and subsequent ceremonies, obviously) would be live streamed for the first time ever. Ooh, hello pressure!
