Man.......... How come you guys didn't tell me that gigs take a lot of work to pull off? The band ahead of us was a Beatles tribute band. Cool stuff, although the crowd that they brought in was not really as into our genre... but heck, people were there! Anyway, they tear down their stuff late. The bar owner is on our butts because we are starting late. I am setting up our PA and not getting any signal from our mics. I sweat it big time for about 2 or 3 minutes... though it felt like an hour... The power amp was on but the mixer was off. So, we get it all setup... sound check for a minute... and begin our song. Somehow we got the sound check wrong, the lead guitar was way too low. We adjust that between the first and second song... second song we get a bunch of feedback. Adjust that between the second and third. Third through 12th song went off well. Here and there through the second and third set we got some feedback, and I could not join in on background vocals because of our limited space. I was just way too close to the pa speaker. I made a few minor and two major booboos... but all in all we pulled it off. Unexpected: We got applause after every song. We got asked to come back next month. I will add pictures after the wifey develops them. My wife is awesome by the way! She has offered to help us tweak the PA on the fly. Well, I was scared as heck to go in front of people and do my thing, but I lived to tell the tale. It was a Hell of a rush. I was actually surprised by how much work it was too. My friend captured some of it with his camcorder... If I can figure it out, maybe I can add a video clip or two for you guys. Thanks TB for all your help!
