I'm leading a classic rock cover band. We auditioned a couple drummers. Settled on a slick Los Angeles transplant and started getting to work. As he started to feel comfortable, he suggested we use some backing tracks in our sets. (Horns/keys/backing vocals). With some adjustments, I must admit, it does sound good. Really good. Using maybe 10 songs out of a 40 song setlist. Let's us play songs we couldn't pull off b4 and really opens up lots of possibilities. But I'm not gonna lie, it feels like cheating. Guitar player hates em. Says we are a karaoke band. Opinions split down the middle. I know pro bands use em... But where is the line between adding to ur live sound and being Millie Vanillie? What say u?
