Where do you keep your pocket things while on stage?
I prefer to play with empty pockets. I've tried setting them on my head or cab but they always fall off. I've put them in my case but then I end up forgetting to gather them until I need my phone/wallet etc.
I was thinking of getting some sort of small bag and attaching it to the back of my cab to put my stuff in, that way it is at hand and I won't easily forget it. Plus my e-cig will be right at hand while I play.
I don't use a rack so building anything onto that is not an option at this point, though if I do I thought adding a small drawer to the rack might be a cool idea.
Where do you store your pocket things while playing?

In my codpiece.

How about just leaving some of it at home and the rest in your car. Take only what you need. The only thing in my pockets when I play are picks and a lighter. I'd put those in MY codpiece too if it wasn't already awfully full up. :smug:

There's a pouch at the headstock of my gig bag that's pretty sizable. It's where I like to put some of that stuff while I'm on stage. Especially since it's very close to me, and not really out of sight. When you're playing club gigs that matters.

In a small bag on the floor next to the amp. If I have a bar stool to sit on the bag tends to sit between the legs of it.

locked in my car. I have a key pad to get in. Before that I would only carry the car key loose in my pocket.

I won't leave anything in my car because you never know if someone will break in. I keep a small wallet like the one pictured, in my pocket. It contains my license, medical insurance card, debit card and a credit card. I put cash in my other pocket. My cell phone stays on top of my amp and I put my car keys in one of my bass cases.

Usually I have room on my pedal board so I just stack my phone, keys and wallet there... That way I don't forget to gather them

Wallet in my back pocket, everything else in my gig bag. When I leave the stage between sets my car keys and phone go back in my pocket. I never wander far from either of those two items, especially the car keys.

On the amp rack. Phone, keys, wallet, etc. It's an SKB so there are grooves so nothing shakes off while I am playing. On breaks, it all goes with me.

Weird, I'm the same way. Bandmates always thought it was crazy, but it drives me nuts. I always carry a backpack, stuff always goes in there when I play.

Wife. She holds my wallet, jacket, keys and sometimes phone.
When she's not there, my pedalboard, or one if my cases.

In my pockets. I've left my wallet and had it walk away one too many times in the past.

I got a smaller flightcase (briefcase size) with all emergency stuff like cables, strings, picks, tools, straps, mints, towel, solder iron etc on stage or just off the side of it. I just I put my phone and keys there. And I wouldent play without that case by my side, its a proven performance saver, over and over again. :) Try finding a solder iron in the evening 30 mins before the gig to resolder a failed crossoverfilter in an ampeg cab :)

I have a rack drawer, my keys and phone go in there. My wallet stays in my back pocket where it belongs.
