Are You The MacGyver of Your Band? I Am. In my current band, my keyboardist/drummer/singer has dubbed me MacGyver. He asks how I always have something to rig a way to fix things. I think it's funny. There are many instances where I have been able to fix music things and vehicle issues quickly during gigs with parts, tools, equipment, etc. on the fly that I have to get through gigs over the years; but, just over a several month period, I have done the following: I have taken a table sized microphone stand and duct taped it to a P.A. cabinet to accommodate a set of LED lights when the pole for the lights was missing. I used the table sized microphone stand with a bendable boom on it and duct taped it to an old bar stool frame with no seat and used that as a microphone stand. I had a part to fix a drum pedal. I had a part to fix a microphone stand boom. A nut fell off a bolt holding the handle on the side of our mixing board. I had an old, rusty wing nut that just happened to be the exact size we needed. I have had an extra microphone stand, microphone, bass or guitar amp head, P.A. power amp, different types of cables, fuses, knife, file, scissors, wrenches, screw drivers, dental floss, or whatever we needed. Last Saturday after the gig, our guitar player's truck battery died and I had a set of jumper cables and jumped his battery and my drummer/keyboardist said his tire was going flat and I had a cigarette lighter powered air compressor and filled his tire so he could drive. I have learned to always be somewhat prepared for things to break when you are in a band. Of course, they normally seem to break on gig night.
