Please do not get me wrong...this group has great players and a lot of potential. I am not planning on leaving this group, not at the point of starting my own group due to life situation for now, but I feel so weighted down with how the group is managed re: charts.. This is a group that also has horns, so the chart issue has become an issue of endless discussion as to who is responsible for what, and how to deal with tunes we take turns suggesting that may not be easily available. BL was complaining of having to rewrite a chart in Bb. Charts go in dropbox and are supposed to be printed out. The group is endlessly discussing charts, how many tunes are too many to learn, etc., etc. all week. So I am just curious about a few things in the realm of how bands work for you. I do play in several groups where none of these problems exist because the BL prepares the set list and all the charts for the gigs in a book for each player, and we just show up and play. Is getting chats available something the BL should be doing? We are a consistent group, but there will always be those situations were we need to call a sub. In my years of experience, charts and rehearsals, learning tunes, set lists, etc. have never been such a big issue or any issue at all. Just would like to talk with BL, who does not have any previous experience managing groups to make this less complicated and....fun!
