My First Major Gig

I did a show recently, my first major gig with a jazz group and I was also the leader. There was a huge crowd and I had Vocals, Sax, Guitar, Keyboard, Bass and Drums. What an experience! Prior to this was mostly solo piano gigs and many jam sessions. We were a hit with the crowd and they asked to play on a regular basis. I played with experienced musicians here and it was a great feeling to get through a tune with very little discussion. I had never played with most of these people. I played with the bass player a couple of times at a jam but that was it. There's mistakes everywhere, but this is jazz so I thought it went well for the first try.
