Some years ago we played an open air gig with a big band. At 10:15 PM a police car came up behind the stage. We were just playing "Stormy Monday Blues" when one of the cops came out of the car, stepped up to me, touched my shoulder and asked: "Are you in charge of the band, sir?" I kept on playing and said "No, I'm just the bass player." <B>"That makes you in charge of the band.</B> It's 10:15 right now. Noise limit is 10:00. We'll be back in a couple of minutes, and we'd appreciate the band to finish until then." That was one cop with a profound knowledge of what's going on in a band!
