I'm 17 and still haven't:/ I don't think I'm quite ready to play a gig yet either, even though a lot of people tell me I'm good, people who know stuff about music would know>>

16, for just over 400 people. Was good, but I have stage fright.

15, for somewhere between 400 and 500 people. It was an exhilarating experience, standing in front of them and nailing our songs. Best feeling ever.

I was 15~16 and playing 6~7 songs for a 20~30 persons crowd... not too sure!

Hmm, first gig was likely when I was 14 at a talent show. First gig with set was with my band as a 16 year old. I have been playing in a jazz trio for a little while now too and we have just had a ton of gigs lately and more to come. There are actually for banquets like background music, but even still, 400 people watching you play is pretty sweet. The 100 dollar check was pretty nice on top of it all

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

If you count School Band.. 12. As for "garage band".. 16.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.
