Play long enough and you’ll lose a booking, it’s just how it goes. The questions are: how do you handle it? And what can you do to help keep it from happening in the first place? (Psst: sometimes you can’t!).
That’s not all, though. Listener Kevin has some ideas about portable staging, and Paul and Dave talk about tempos and how to manage them in your band.
Where can you hear about Sweet Home Alabama, Sample In a Jar, Tower of Power and, yes, Teen Town in the same place? This week’s Gig Gab Podcast, of course!
Plus, for those of you who aren’t coiling cables correctly – and that includes pretty much every one of you if you haven’t played in a band with Dave – you can hear about Dave’s crazy way of doing this, too. It’s crazy-effective. Dave also talks about a tantrum he once had at a gig. These two things might be related.
Paul shares the secret about how he lets his bandmates know they’re late to the stage, your two favorite weekend warriors talk about the beauty of running your in-ears in stereo, and then there’s time for a discussion about wireless dongles!
Trust us, you don’t wanna miss this one.

Your listener feedback this week brings Paul and Dave to some interesting places, first talking about the shortage of keyboard players, and wrapping up with a conversation about the glass ceiling for cover bands.
But first, your two favorite weekend warriors got a chance to play together last week, so there’s a lot to talk about there, too, including the concept of who is “right” on stage when someone makes a mistake?
