Besides folks walking down the street having animate conversations on their phones, looking every bit like crazy people did 20 years ago, here are a few ironic circumstances I have encountered:
Being a drummer yet carrying batteries, picks and extra chords for guitar players who forget such.
Lead vocalists who don’t own a microphone, let alone an XLR cable.
Showing up at the gig forgetting my foot pedal and drum sticks.
Guitar players who can’t stay in tune.
Playing in bands with married couples; trying to ignore their petty squabbles.
Band members sleeping with each other.
Bass players who play too loud.
Deaf sound techs.
The cat who asks, “What key is this?” even thought they have played the same set list for fifteen years.
Club owners who expect you to play for beer and a burger.
The band member who tries to mix the track or edit the video on the first cut.
Ain’t it the truth?
Can we help you?
