    Need an energy boost

    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.

    Gretsch New Classic Kit - Weight?

    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?

    How long does it take you to set up?

    Just wondering how long it takes people to set up your gear for a gig? I takes me about 40 mins to set up a 4-piece with 3 cymbals (unmic'd). How about you?

    How do you deal with a bad gig?

    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?

    What genre is 'Tequila'?

    Does anybody know what genre the tune 'Tequila' is? I played it at the weekend but am just wondering what type of music it is. Wikipedia says it is 'surf' music but I think it is more latin sounding.
