This had happened to me in multiple bands now. Top 40/bar bands where the bandleader in charge of booking the gigs and hiring the musicians does not know a lick of music. In both situations, they were guitar players. One, the sound designer turned his guitar off completely in the house. He didn't know. The second, she played out of a 40watt Roland Cube, at a bar, where I play a 400watt 4ohm eden 212 and the other guitarist had a similar capacity rig. I even had to find a sub drummer for her, cause she doesn't know how to weed out good from unqualified. Just venting really. But how do these people keep bands together? I've been a woodwind player for 20 years, but have been converting to the bass for 2 years, which I love. I take what I can get as far as work. It's unfortunately been bands like this.
