Who is reading this board? What kind of music do you play? Where do you play it?

To ante up, I won't ever quit my day job, but typically play in:

1) a commercial Klezmer band (2-6 players), a couple of events per month, and I play perhaps half of them. The other reed guy is a very strong jazz player. I also book my own events (usually clarinet, keyboard, bass).

2) a balkan quartet, that does perhaps 4-6 folk-dance dance events a year (clarinet, accordion, bass/fiddle, guitar/mandolin/tambura/bass/dumbek.) We all sing.

3) a community orchestra, and that also has a chamber music series (4-6 concerts per year total.)

4) a contra-dance band, 7-9 people (typically violin, viola, trombone, clarinet, piano, bass, guitar, dulcimer), 4-6 events per year.

5) other opportunites that arise. The last year had some interesting ones: Opera On Tap (6 players), River Raisin Ragtime Revue (13 piece group), Vocal Arts Ensemble (24 voices).

I use one setup for everything: the same mouthpiece on Bb, A or C clarinets. But, I tend to use softer reeds at ethnic/contra events.
