Chupa

Got hired to play a Chupa (wedding ceremony) on Sunday. I used to do this as part of playing the whole wedding. Lately I've been getting hired just to do the Chupa, while a non-Jewish band does the rest of the gig. I play guitar, plus we have a violin and flute.

It's a pretty sweet gig. About 1/5 of the shlepping, but 1/3 the pay, and 1/10 the stress. I just have to put together sheet music for the other players.

I'm not a tremendous fan of The Chevra (overproduced), but one thing they do that I really like: They post sheet music on their website. So I downloaded their Mi Ban Siach for the ceremony. I wish more bands would do this (especially with the old standards).
