I've done the sightread-the-G.-L.-book thing before. Mr. P. loaded up a bus-full of Memphians and took us down to Greenwood, Mississippi to play in the high school auditorium for (amazingly a full house of) folks who had paid for some fairly expensive tickets.
The "kicker" was afterwards when one of the concert's sponsors insisted that the entire band "drop by" his house for a reception, at which each of us was asked about our individual backgrounds and musical experiences...some mightly tall tales emerged, and many smiles were buried while others were spinning their yarns.
