Spent the day today as part of the stage crew (mostly moving risers - damn things are heavy!) with other dads at our local high school's show choir competition. I played bass in my high school's choir, back in the stone age ('79), but it's a whole different world today. We had schools from 3 states competing. Most, but not all, had guitarists. A different kind of gig, for sure. You get 5 minutes, or so, to set up while the rest of the group is putting up backdrops, lights, drum kits, etc., play in several different styles, at wildly differing volume levels, and usually nobody even sees you behind all of the singer/dancers. Most of the kids were using small solid state amps or modelers plugged into a big keyboard amp being shared with other musicians. Saw a couple of semi-hollows, a Strat, a Jackson 7 string, a Sheckter, and not one, but 2 red Gibson Flying V's. I know that show choir is big in some areas of the country, and virtually non-existent in others. Anybody else done it, as a parent or participant?
