Hi, i was just wondering if any other bands out there have a few beers while they play? i try to avoid drinking beer during gigs, i might have one when we get to the venue or i'll have one after we're done with our set. i'm starting to get a bit fed up of our guitar players drinking during gigs, because they'll hold up a change between songs just have a drink of their beer which totally ruins the momentum we've built up. i drink water when we play, but only when i get the chance, i won't let it get in the way of a song unless i am starting to feel very ill from lack of water...but i can't ever see that happening - i drink loads of water before we play anyhow. part of my annoyance is that we've just invested 6,000 in a new PA system, and we're doing that so we can get a better sound and improve overall, but its the little annoying things like drinking between songs that messes it up for me and it seems like a waste to invest money in the PA if we're not going to try to be a bit more professional about what we are doing. sorry for my rant!
