Thanks everyone for the advice and helpful suggestions. Was a 3 hour set with no breaks but made it through with a litre of lucozade and wine gums. Also adrenaline seemed to keep the engine ticking over.
I have been reading some good reviews of this kit but haven't got the chance to try one out yet. Can anyone advise me about the weight of these drums? I read in the MD review (03/07) that the 16" floor tom weighs over 16lbs :-O. Are they of the hernia-inducing variety when lugging to gigs?
I love Steve Gadd. Where I live the only chance I would get to see him are when he plays with big concert acts like Paul Simon or Eric Clapton. He is playing with Clapton in May. I am not a huge fan of Clapton but just want to see Steve Gadd play in the flesh.
Has anyone gone to a gig just to...
I played a wedding on Thursday night last. We played for 4 hours, the sound was terrible, and I couldnt get hold of a good groove until the last hour or so. I usually enjoy my gigs but I felt rotten after that one. How do you deal with nights like that?
