    Thanks for sharing. I don't know about billiards gigs nowadays, but a couple of decades ago it was like playing in a chimney with all that smoke. Took about a week to get the smoke smell out of everything, iirc. Hated it, so I only backed up my buddy once.

    Come to think of it, I don't remember him taking his Martin, but his cheap, asian made guitar that he always brought to our camping trips.

  3. Love your gear, band looks great, very cool gig. Thanks Crusher47! Never played a billiards gig, did a bowling alley once and it sucked.

    Hi!

    Cool! Thanks for the pix. Is that the 1x15 or the 2x10 Rumble you have stacked up there? Is there a dance floor in this place too? It looks like a good sized room. House PA or did you bring your own? Hey, what is that thing in front of you that looks like a propane bottle? Were there any pyrotechnics? Thanks for sharing. :)


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    2x10 combo with 2x10 extension cabinet for a vertical 4x10 stack. Small dance floor right in front of the stage. House PA. Propane bottle thingy = tip jar :)

  8. Yeah, we played a pool hall about ten years ago and it was the same. The next day my eyes were on fire and I felt like I smoked a pack of camel non filtered smokes the night before. Took forever for the smell to go away too.

    Ugh.

    But to the OP, looks like a cool set up and a good gig. :thumbsup:
