You know that one Eminem song that tells about how everyone has that one moment in life that gives you the chance to do what you want the most. I found mine.

It all started earlier today, just me and my two friends. (My drummer and bassist) When our friend called and asked if we wanted to play a party. We asked whos and we were told it was Tim Costor the keyboardist for Santana. We jumped at the chance and said yes, but then he told us that Santana was playing in our area (Northern California) and that they still needed a band to open up for them. So if they like us then we will open up for Santana!

The best part, were only kids. Im 14 and sing/guitar, drummer is 15, and bassist is 13. This (the party) will be our second gig, and opening for them will be the 3rd.

Any suggestions? Im so happy I thought I had to brag to UG.

Don't let this bring you down too much, but Santana will NOT hire a bunch of kids to perform at their concert. It would be unbelievable, but think about the literal meaning of the bolded word.

Sorry.

I don't care if we don't open for them, at least im going to meet Carlos Santana and have him tell me what he thinks of my playing.

That in itself is going to be an honor.

I think your friend might be bull****ting you, and if he is not congruates. I just think it would be highly unlikely.

I've actually met Tim (The keyboardist) and he is dating my friend's mom. So its all real. I even checked wiki, he's on there. I checked ticketmaster, sure enough their playing my area in October.

Who doesn't know an Eminem song?

Agreed that you shouldn't get your hopes up to get an opening slot on his show, but it is always nice to get some good constructive criticism from an industry veteran. Take it while you can.
