Re: Playing in a Bar - Length of Sets/Breaks/Hours

What's usual for pub gigs in my part of the world (England) is 2x 50 minute sets with a 20 minute break, or a shorter break if the sets are a little longer or over-run. That's probably because (I...

Re: Band leaders

Two previous bands I've been in, the leader was the guitarist. They owned the PA, board, lights and all the rest of the gear. They bought all the stuff and set up their own band because (so I...

Re: Difficult band members

I've left three bands because there was at least one person I couldn't stand to spend time with any more.

The band I have recently joined is the first one that's wanted to meet me socially, and...

Re: But What To Wear?

My current band favours black - the female singer dresses up and the rest of us go for black with black background t-shirts. My previous band went for bright colours - anything you like so long as...

Re: Missing thread?

I don't know about Google, but it looks like a moderator has moved it to a more appropriate forum. They just did the same with a thread of mine (for which many thanks btw).

Re: Any "fun" grooves for practice pad?

How about a train beat? It's just a single stroke roll, but with an accent.

Lesson (At 1:56 he puts the notation up)

You don't need a bass pedal....

Re: The worst gig of my life

I actually feel pretty good when I do a kit share gig and manage to make a decent job of it. Makes me feel proud. Best gig I've ever played was on a shared kit, the cymbals were so high I nearly...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I know this doesn't help Drummingman because he didn't know it was to be a kit share, but I've done a few and I always find out who's kit I'll be using and check it out - via the band website or...

Re: Last piece of gear you forgot?

I've only ever once left anything behind, and that was my throne. Luckily the bass player was a builder and had a stack of rubber kneeling pads in his van. A few of them on top of a low bar stool...

Re: 40th Anniversary of Physical Graffiti - How Cool Is This?

That summer I was on holiday with a friend in Newquay, Cornwall. We met a group of lads who were on holiday from London and were staying in a caravan. They had brought some LPs with them, one of...

Re: How to handle this situation

Just say "because the money you're paying me isn't worth my while, I want more money for gigs, and I could get more with another band".

I agree that there's no reason to mention your band mates,...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

Thanks KIS. I'm sure you're right. It's not all men, obviously. Far from it, the majority in the bands I've been in have been fine. But you only need one to spoil the atmosphere (for me) and...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

I'm another who hasn't really experienced sexism for many, many years - until playing in bands. In our professional and business life it isn't tolerated and there are repercussions for any...

Re: screwed up my first gig

My first gig was, like yours, just a short set. Eight numbers I think. I was so scared and tense I didn't have the nerve to do any of the fills etc in the songs, I just kept the beat going and...

Re: The official London Drum Show thread. Who's coming - forum member arrangements!

I was very much hoping to be there. I was planning on stopping over and taking in the LDS on the way to Dover (for the ferry to France) in our camper. But we've had to change our plans, can't leave...

Re: Stage volume

This is exactly the experience I had with a band where I had volume concerns like yours. The bands reaction (among ourselves of course) was to sneer at the peasants who apparently didn't appreciate...

Re: Stage volume

Good luck with it Larry. I had this problem with a band a couple of years ago. Grey haired geezers in their 50s and when it came to volume they were idiots. Prided themselves on their stupid...

Re: Gig Disasters?

I once had the same experience as Brandon, bass beater got caught in my trousers. Not a disaster, when the song finished I rolled up the right trouser leg to just above my knee to keep it out of the...

Nooooo !! What? I mean - WHAT !!! That's absolutely wonderful. I am as happy for you as is possible for an insanely jealous person to be (if you follow me).

The practising is so much more...

Re: How does a band keep a drummer?....

I don't think this problem is just limited to drummers, is it? Bands I've been in - had the same experience with singers, guitarists and keyboards. They say "yes" then a couple of days later, or...
