What weather/ climate conditions are the worst for playing in? Example 1 I am part of our worship team at a local church. They were doing an outreach concert supposedly with many other groups, about an hour south of us in Daytona. The other bassist had a death in the family and I was a fill in at the last minute. It was February and that day it was in the high 30's with a 15 mile an hour wind. The venue: a large covered concert building open on all sides, about 8000 SF, next to one of those carnivals that goes from town to town. Huge stage. The two sound people, our band and the couple of people that rode down with us were the only people there. We were playing to no one. There were no other groups. I mean nobody. I was so cold I couldn't hardly play and no one was in tune. I was happy when we just finished and left so I could get back in the heat in my car. No fun. Example 2: I've also played at a spiritual retreat where we were outside, at night, in Florida in August with many acoustic guitars, extremely high humidity and we were sweating so much we deadened our strings. I heard one guy start a song and a string just popped as everyone simultaneously went out of tune. This seems to happen with guitar, vs bass strings easier. I've lost track of how many times I've ruined strings by sweating all over them. What are your extreme or bizarre weather/climate conditions stories? I would love to hear them. I've limited it to two choices.
