I used to run stage sound and engineer in a small format recording studio back in the 80s and 90s. I also played in a few bands over the years, but hadn't in five years. I had plans to get together with a few guys around here right before the pandemic. Well that ain't happening so I built G.E.R.R.W.E.E.S (Group, Electronic, Rack Mounted, Recording, WiFi Enabled, Entertainment System), he's playing in the background as I write this.
Gerrwees holds my music and video collection, creates his own WiFi LAN, plays and records music and plays videos (haven't incorporated a camera yet to record video). He's about 4 ft tall, on wheels, and will operate on 110 AC or 12V DC (when I incorporate the inverter I have). He uses an old Dell desktop with Windows 7, rack mounted stereo power head and some efx, a couple of Kustom speakers, with some sub woofers to put in yet. He also has a MIDI keyboard, out board sequencer, and a small 4ch mixer. I've been thinking about making him respond to voice commands, but for now I have a wireless mouse or my lap top to operate him at a distance.
Kind of sad that I had to create a musician to play with, but it's the "new normal" I guess.

Unfortunately, thanks to Dictator Cuomo, we have few options even for indy work in my area.
Pigeons Playing Pingpong next weekend at the movie drive in. I will be getting paid way less than my union gigs and club gigs....but it is a gig nonetheless.
May your work pick up soon.
