    I have a municipal waste sweatband that I've worn to every show i ever played. And I never washed it.
    What kinds of things do you all use for "luck"?
    It can be anything from your lucky hat, to wrapping a cucumber in tin foil and shoving it in your pants.:rollno:
    Lets hear it.
     
  2. I wrap a black bandana around my head, helps keep my color consistent and keeps my long hair out of my eyes and face while playing. Don't know if I'd call it "lucky" just one thing I consider a must have before performing.

    I don't believe in luck. We MAKE our luck.

    I don't have a lucky charm, but I have a bit of a 'luck ritual'...

    ...it's called practice.

    ;)
     
  8. If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all.

    A band I was in many years ago used to throw/drop pennies on the stage before we would play.
     
  10. You know, there might be something to that. Last weekend I went to a Mediterranean restaurant, Humus-Kabobs type place. Had belly dancers and a live band playing ethnic music. They took a handful of dollar bills and showered them all over the band and dance floor. People danced on them and the band played on. No one picked up any of the bills all night. I guess it was a luck type thing and disrespectful to pilfer.
    money-on-the-floor.
     
  11. That must be one nasty, crusty, stanky, funky piece of disgustingness!!!
