Just wanted to know, what would a keyboardist (or pianist) do when the band is live performing songs that do not require piano parts. Recently I've been lucky enough to be able to play live for small audiences at clubs with a band of my own, but it just so happens that this "band" has too many people in it. 2 guitar players, 1 bass player, 1 drummer, 1 pianist, and me.
Its all good when we try songs from Aerosmith and Queen, but whenever we try Iron Man, the pianist just sits there looking like an idiot (because there is no way we could fit piano into such a heavy song)
What do you guys think?
