Today I showed up to practice and was greeted with a homemade plywood sound wall painted flat black. We used to have a regular Plexiglas or acrylic sound wall (I don't know what they're made of), but the owner of the sound wall decided he needed it back again. So, Bob, the band leader, made one of his own. It was four or five equal sections with hinges. I'm on a riser, so I could only see the tops of everyone's heads. It was odd to say the least. We need some little windows in it or something. I was off a little tonight because there was a little disconnect there with the rest of the band. I couldn't see them! Oh well, we'll have to see how it goes next week. Maybe he will modify the sound wall a little.
