Reason I ask is, one of our guitarists has bought an old MCI charter bus and is stripping it down to the studs to rehab as a tour bus for our band. He's going all in (big screen TV, couches, kitchenette, bathroom, bunks and a big bed in the back, multiple A/C, etc. He's doing this totally out of his own pocket (yeah, he has a pretty good day job)... but once it's ready for use, if we start using it for gigs then the diesel is gonna come off the top of what we get paid for gigs. He says the bus gets 6 mpg and around these parts diesel is selling for quite a bit more than gas (about $3.70 a gallon). On top of which, we have a trailer we would have to pull behind the bus to carry the full P.A., lights, etc. that we bring to most of our shows. So our BL (and frankly, myself too) are kind of skeptical whether having this bus is gonna put us any better off than the rig we're rolling now (GMC Denali that rides the 5 of us in the band and pulls the trailer). Obviously there's the "cool factor" of having a bus but we're only a weekend warrior variety/party band so if the overhead of this thing starts cutting into our pay I'm not sure I'd be real happy about that. OTOH I've never ridden on a tour bus before and one of the other guys in the band (who used to have one) says they're the best thing since sliced bread. Thoughts?
