Just joined an established cover + originals band with a good following... good songs... lots of bookings... and decent players who are also easy to work with. Nothing negative about the band per se but they have some technology expectations that are kind of challenging me. I've been playing 31 years during which time I have used wedge monitors about 95% of the time and a cord 100% of the time. This includes my main band of the last 5 1/2 years where everyone was wedges and cords. This new band, though, rolls with everyone on IEMs and the guitars and bass on wireless systems. They're providing all the gear (except the earbuds which I bought), but for me it's just a whole different approach to the onstage thing then I'm used to. And frankly I'm a bit apprehensive about the first couple of live gigs which are going to be tricky enough getting used to new players and new material and then to have to figure all this tech stuff out too and hope it all works. Oh well, gotta look at it positively as a growth opportunity I suppose. Would be interested in perspectives and advice from anyone who has been (or is) in a similar situation.
