    Hell doesn't have bands, they have a dj and country line dancing.

    Get a wireless and next time you'll be the envy of all. You can even tap solos with one hand if you are at a urinal.

    Yep. We also keep these in the back of the truck at all times. Set up and take down in less than a minute.

    It gets better...the band leader went out there today to get our check and nobody seems to know who hired us. The Golf Pros who "booked" us say that they aren't responsible, and the guy who seemed to be in charge AT the event says he can't write a check, either, and the woman who CAN write a check doesn't know about it. Finally it gets worked out, somehow (I'm hearing about all of this second hand) BUT...we each have to fill out a W-9 BEFORE the check is written. We've played at this country club many times and never had to do so before.

    We keep thinking...what if we had been an out of town band...

    Oh, and I forgot to mention earlier...even though there are two bars there, the bars don't take money, only your membership card #, and then, as a member, you are billed later...which means...the band, or anyone else who isn't a member or a guest of a member, can't drink. You can't buy a beer with cash, and it's illegal, so they say, for them to GIVE us a beer. In reality not a big deal, but I usually like to have a beer or two during a four hour gig, and...we've played there a bunch and never had the problem, not that its a HUGE problem, before...

    70-80% of our gigs are outside & in the Cape Fear area of NC.

    Not uncommon for us to have several each season in the 90s. Some in full afternoon sun. :barf

    Yup. Have one of those in front of my pedalboard at all times in full blast. It makes all the difference in the world.

    Why is a squirrel cage fan preferable to the traditional ones?

    I believe they are more powerful and more concentrated air flow, smaller / stronger /sturdier build. Also, I'm excited about the extra power outlets! 2 outdoor shows this week so we shall see how it fares!

    Wow sounds like a gig you could do without. The heat (or cold) is one thing but going through all that hassle just to get paid and no beer!!

    Two words...

    heat rash

    What made it bad? It was... down there...

    Peeling sweaty and sticky clothes off it? Not fun.
