Re: Point of View - Behavior of Band Members at Gig
I'd call it unprofessional......leave the mucking around for the rehearsal room. In most of the bands I played in, it didn't matter if there were 2, 20, 200 or 2,000 in the room....showtime was showtime. Even tuning was done discreetly for the most part and sound/line checks done as early as possible.
Plenty of other ways to have fun at a gig that involve the whole band.....AND the most important people of all......those who've paid good money to see you. If they wanna swap instruments, then all do it and make it part of the fun......but the way it was presented at your gig.......I'd be unhappy too.
