So the band did a gig this weekend for a political event.pretty easy gig, just some warmup music before the featured speakers. Our governor spoke before the music started and the band was sitting at tables because they offered us a free dinner. So while the governor was speaking he was getting some nasty feedback from the house PA system. The manager of the facility came to me and said our system is causing that. I said impossible our system has nothing to do with his house system plus all channels on outboard were muted no hot mics. So manager boy leaves me. I watch him start speaking to one of the governor's body guard who was clearly annoyed at the feedback. The guard pointed towards our gear and this idiot manager walks over to the outlets and promptly rips all our cords out of the outlets! Of course, all our equipment was on because we were going to play after governor's talk. I about lost my mind. We just purchased a new QSC system and this was only the second gig using it. So after governor's speech I find manager boy and ask ***? He said the bodyguard told him to do it to stop feedback. I asked him did he notice after he pulled our cords the feedback continued? He remarked yeah, really thought that was it because his system works well. I explained rather sternly why it's not good to cut power by pulling cords out of outlets. He told me, " I didn't know that". To which I replied, "then why are you doing something with my gear that you have no idea what would happen?" He had nothing. So I go up to the stage turn every switch off, then plug everything in, then power up each speaker and mixer, etc. then I get this loud strange sound coming from the QSC's! Now I'm in panic/angry mode. I shut everything down again, then refine it up. This time everything seemed okay, did the gig and then went home. Manager boy comes up to me and asks if everything is okay. I kind of let him have it. About why its not good to touch thousand of dollars of equipment if you don't know what you're doing. He looks at me puzzled. Now earlier in the evening he found out I'm an attorney. I looked at him and simply told him I hope the facility has a good insurance policy in case our gear isn't the same. Then I find out we might be back at this facility in May. If so, they're getting a letter stating in writing our equipment is not to be touched by facility staff. Morons.
