To Light or Not to Light?
How important do you think it is to have your own lights when you are a cover band playing small to medium sized bars (which usually dont have anything other than house lights? Will people not dance if the band doesnt have lights? The reason I'm asking is because I have always been the one who brings the lights and light stand to gigs, and I'm tired of lugging them all the time along with my drums. The other guys arent really willing to, and really wh've had gigs where the lights were pumping, but no one danced anyway. What is your experience with lights?
