Seems to be quite a few bar cover bands in my area that never practice as a unit and only get together if there is a paying gig. That's ok for the semi-pro experienced players that gig regularly but what sticks in my craw is the bands where every member is standing behind a big black orchestra stand with their faces buried into notebooks of tab sheets. What should be a performance is really just getting paid to do the practice should have be done on your own. Am I the only person that believes that music stands and tab sheets belong in rehearsal rooms but not on a stage? I'm talking about typical 3 chord bar band music like Start me Up or Sweet Home Alabama not a jazz ensemble.
