    Big jam with 5 bands at Victory Lakes in Monroe Township, NJ A benefit to save the dam that enables Victory Lakes to be a lake otherwise it would be Victory Marsh or Victory Creek. this went on from 1pm to 10pm Lots of food trucks... behold
    Buy a metal mug and free refills of different flavor sodas
    A vendor provided free beer the bands.. Brewed locally, our drummer hitting the tap before showtime 20190810_140405. There was a floating bull in the lake..

  6. Looks like a great gig. But there seems to be something missing... Food shots, maybe?

    Check this out ... Guy on stage with beard is the sound engineer. (He's allowed) he takes his job seriously always making sure things are correct ... Then unnoticed by the band this dude (not allowed) appears out of nowhere on stage taking closeups of us playing... I like the look my band mates give one another.. like 'Who the hell is this guy? The show must go on. ;)

    Free beer and a lake view, two things that make a gig special. Very cool!

    Sigh... Well, at least he didn't trip over cables, knock mic or cymbal stands over or figure being on stage meant he was entitled to the band's beer... :rollno:

    Oh he did hit up the beer keg, but he was already smashed when he showed up .. later he fell and hit his head and an ambulance took him to the hospital.

    Nice gig and fun location!
  15. There's 3 ways to handle it. You can get mad and have a confrontation with the guy. You can make the guy front and centre, but that can encourage more people to come on stage or be a bit stupider. Or you can do what you did and hope for the best. Seemed to work for you. It's what I would've done as someone on stage, but as an audience member I don't mind option 2.
