Friday night my band was playing a venue we play often and there was a little drama about our breaks. The original agreement with the bar manager, was two 20 min, breaks for the gig 8 to 11 pm. personally, I have never liked taking breaks, I get stiff, cold, lose the vibe etc. so during our second break at 10:05pm, the owner had some words with my band members. he was pissed we stopped while the place was going crazy for us. I was not in the area so I didn't see it but he said something like go back on or never come back. I think it all cooled down, we went on after 10 min and actually played till about 11:20. the thing is, I was on his side!! I hate to leave a stage while people are having a blast and wanting more. what type of break lengths do you guys take and is there a pre-arranged time before the gig?
