My drummer entered us in a battle of the bands recently. I don't really like them, but it turned out to be a very fun show. This battle apparently had judges. One guy with "30 years experience in the business." We weren't worried about competition so we did a normal show. At the end of the night the bands got little sheets of paper with comments about our performances on them. I just want to share the above-mentioned judge's best comments. First, I brought three basses for three different tunings. The guitarist also brought three. Judges comment: "Did you -really- need three basses?" Second, I sang backup to three songs. One was a simple harmony, the other two were mostly the same notes just for reinforcment. "Backing vocals were not neccessary." By the way, another judge complemented our tasteful backup vocals. I don't know, I guess I just wanted to share that. We got a good laugh out of it.
