I'm now somehow involved in a couple of "trad jazz" bands - one that plays Monday evenings, and one every other Monday afternoon at a local (now independent) library. I wish I could say I'm really keen on the music, but I'm just not is the honest truth. The one in the evening pays a bit of useful dosh, the afternoon library thing (to which I'm about to head off now) very little in the dosh department. The people who play in both bands are lovely, and I won't say I've not had any benefit from doing the gigs, but I'm really thinking it's getting to the time when the downside is overshadowing the upside, and I should leave one, or maybe both. I don't find it an easy thing to do, but... Has anyone else here had to leave a band for similar reasons, and how did you handle it? Did you regret the decision later?
