    A band leader books a 10-piece band for a New Years gig...  bass, drums,
guitar, piano, Hammond organ, horn section, and singers.  Unfortunately, in
the last days of December, EVERY player bails on him!
    He's frantic.  He calls everyone he knows, but they're all booked.
Finally, in desperation, he starts calling everyone in the union
directory, and he finally books... a banjo player and an accordionist.
    The gig is a smash!!  The club owner books them back for next New Years
with a hefty raise.  The banjo player turns to the accordionist and
says:"Great!  We can leave our gear!"
