Playing or pretending to play music?

Playing or pretending to play music?

Today I got a TV commercial jobs as an accordion player.
Well, that's quite fun to take part in this kind of event. The good things is to meet some more new people, get some fresh talks, etc.
Kind of interesting after all.

The bad thing ( as for a musician ) - you need to ....pretend to play! What a pity...
And then when the director is asking you to move closer to other "band members" so you actually don't have enough space to open the bellows! You know what I mean?!

Anyway, the very last picture looks great. People just eat this stuff. Normal.

Go ahead!
