Maximizing Setup Time, Taking Requests, and Repairing Relationships – GigGab 94

band-gearIt’s time to answer some of your questions. Thomas asks about setup time: how long is too long? what can you and your band do to make it more efficient? Dave and Paul have your answers here. Then it’s on to Matt, whose band was badmouthed by their former singer. Your two favorite weekend warriors talk through ways to repair the damage and move forward. But first, do you take requests? Ever take heat from a club owner for that? It can be a double-edged sword, and it’s one that Dave and Paul have both experienced recently. All of this and more in this week’s GigGab!

    I find 2 hours is minimum. We don’t have a set gig, so everything is new. We also don’t play that much. Once or twice a month. I like to sound check before the people get there but it’s not working as well as I would like. I also like our 1608 but I need to learn more about it. Sounds like your doing things that I’m not.
