How important is it for you to have clean hands before playing? I bring this subject up because I had a very uncomfortable 2nd set Wednesday night at a corporate event. Being in Texas (and having folks from around the world show up for events) we Texan's really enjoy showing off our BBQ, and every event in the Lone Star State MUST include it in the fare. Anyway I had a nice piece briskett between my teeth when we got called back up to the stage abruptly. So selection #3 was my world and gawd I hated it! Now you'll have excuse me while I coat my bass in Purelle!
