    One day a snake and a blind rabbit came across each other in the forest. Being peaceful but curious animals, they mutually decided to feel each other so as to decide what kind of creatures they were. The snake said " I'll go first. Let's see...." As he slithered around the rabbit he said," Hmmmm...warm, soft, fuzzy, big ears, you are a Bunny Rabbit." The rabbit said says" Yes, now my turn. Hmmm...slimey, quick tongue, no ears, You are a record company A&R man."

    an engineer and a producer are driving across the desert. their car breaks down, so they start walking. after a few hours in the hot sun, they figure they need to start looking for some water or they are vulture food...so they decide to split up and look to cover more area. the engineer soon happens upon a small freshwater spring, but the flow of water is slow as snail snot. he cups his hands under the water source and patiently watches the water drip down drop by drop until he collects a big enough gulp...minutes seem to pass achingly slow as the already dehydrated engineer is just about to swallow his first cool drink when...

    the producer saunters over and starts taking a piss in the engineer's cupped hands. dumbfounded, the engineer asks just what the hell was the producer doing, to which the producer replies, "Sorry man, I was only trying to help!"

    From Bob the Mix Fix...

    So a Musician/Engineer walks into a Studio, and asks the Female receptionist, Karen, to see the owner.

    She says, he's out right now. The guy says, he'll wait. After 5 minutes, he tells her, "You know you have lovely breasts." He pulls out a $100.00 dollar bill, and says, "I'll give this to you if you let me see them."

    She thinks about it for a while, and says, "What the Hell," and opens her shirt.

    The guy throws the $100.00 on her desk.

    After 5 more minutes, he says "You know, you have a lovely Bottom." He pulls out another $100.00 bill, and says, "I'll give you this if you pull off your pants."

    Again, she thinks about it for a while, and says, "Why not," and does it. He throws her the other hundred.

    He waits for 5 more minutes, and says, "Look, I've got to go. Tell Ed that I was here, okay?"

    Later on, Ed comes into the studio. The receptionist says, "Your weird, asshole, client, friend, Bob, was here, but had to leave."

    Ed says, "Oh good!! Did he leave me the $200.00 he owes me?" :eek:

    What happened when the bassist locked his keys in the car?
    Took damn near an hour to get the drummer out!


    A banjo player takes a shortcut through a rural area and his car breaks down. Heads to the nearest farm. Typical farmer's daughter situation. The next day his car is fixed and he leaves...

    One year later he's in the general area and decides to visit. Pulling up he sees the farmer and the farmer's daughter holding a 3 month old baby that looks MIGHTY familiar...

    He gets out and says, "I gave you my phone number! Why didn't you call and let me know I was a father. I'm willing to live up to my responsibility." ...

    To which the farmer replied, "Yeah, we decided we'd rather have a bastard than a banjo picker any day!"


    Mommy," said the little girl, "Can I get pregnant by anal intercourse?" "Of course you can." her mother replied. "How do you think conductors are made?"

    Did you hear about the violist who bragged he could play 32nd notes? The rest of the orchestra didn't believe him, so he proved it by playing one.

    Q: You see a conductor and a violist walking in a parking lot... who do you run over first?
    A: The conductor...business before pleasure.

    This actually occurred with the Cleveland Symphony... A little background, first: There ARE good viola players, but violists are the butt of many a joke, mainly because there are so many who are violists by default, not by choice, their prowess with the violin being less than exemplary. Why, then, so many composers decided that they would give some of the most rhythmically challenging parts to the viola section is beyond the ken of many a conductor. Inevitably, they are given the "off" beats... the "and" of just about everything. Once during a concert in Cleveland, the orchestra came to a resounding finish, only to have a solitary "screekch" of a viola hit the off-beat after the ending chord. Without hesitation, a fellow in the percussion section shouted, "HEY! ONE GOT THROUGH!" No word as to whatever happened to the poor viola player...

    And, to finish things off... a favorite quote about musicians from the composer, Richard Strauss: "Never look at the trombones; it only encourages them."

    From http://bluegrassbanjo.org/banjokes.html:

    Our hero was walking around Ventura and after he had an In-and-Out burger, he happened upon a little antique shop, so he went in and took a look around. Way up on a high shelf he saw a little brass mouse figurine, and he really liked it. He asked the owner how much it was, and the guy said, "It's $50 for the mouse, and $100 for the story that goes with it." Well, our hero didn't care about any old story, he just liked the little brass mouse, so he paid the guy $50 and walked out with the mouse in a brown paper bag. As he was walking home, he noticed the figurine was hollow with two little holes. Holding it up to his mouth, it made a melodious whistle. No sooner that he started, he was being followed by three little mice. When he stopped, they stopped. When he turned left, they turned left, et cetera. "Whoa, this is creeping me out," he thought. As he walked, the mice were joined by more mice, until our hero looked like the Pied Piper. He started to run, and he wound up on a pier over the Pacific Ocean [he's in Ventura, remember?] All the mice in town are right behind him. He is so freaked out that he throws the bag with the brass mouse into the water, and all the little mice jump after it, fall into the ocean, and drown. "Man, this is weird!" he says. He goes back to the antique store, and the owner doesn't seem surprised to see him. "Ahhh, you've come back to hear the story!" he says to our dilapidated hero. "No, man," says he, "I was just wondering if you have any little brass banjo players?"

    Once upon a time, there was a band. This band consisted of a banjo player, trombone, accordian, and viola. One year on December 30th the banjo player gets a call. A club owner informs him that the band he had scheduled for New Years Eve just canceled on him, and could the banjo player's band make the gig. He calls the rest of the fellas and tells them to meet him at the club to set up their equipment. Well the gig went reasonably well, especially since drunk New Years Eve partiers are gonna have a good time if it kills em. At the end of the night the club owner hands them their pay and says thanks for covering his ass. He then casually asks if they might be interested in coming back to play sometime in the Spring. All the guys in the band light up, and the banjo player says "Sure that would be great, say can we leave our gear here till then?"

    A singer and her accompanying pianist have been gigging for a while. One night just before they go on, the singer says "When we do My Funny Valentine tonight, I'd like to jazz it up a bit - have you got any suggestions?" The pianist says "Well, after the second verse you could modulate up a semitone, and then when you get to the final verse you could change to 5/4". The singer says "Oh I don't think I could do that without some practise". The pianist replies "Well I don't see why not, you did it that way last night".
