Good story. Some of the best band experiences aren't when you play the best.
Yeah, thanks Todd... that remark prompted me to start a thread about that stuff in "about gigs". I'm sure alot of us have some good stories about those experiences.

After ditching the acoustic for a Tele, replacing a battery, a cable or two, and reassembling the bass, etc., we got through the night without letting the crowd know what kind of problems we were dealing with.

When the night was over, we were all high-fiving each other-- not about how great we played, but how we salvaged the gig and overcame the equipment issues.

BTW, I was reading a newletter from a internationally known Aussie harper, and he apparently was on tour without a backup mic, because he made reference to a mic cutting out during a set, causing him to abandon harp for the set. I couldn't believe I read that; when I play out, I've got backup everything..amps,mics,tubes, cables, etc... pain in the butt.

As it turns out, I probably won't use it that way at this gig, 'cuz I'll jus' run my vocal mic into the mains and take a harp amp- prob'ly my Epi Valve Special-- to blow through. But, it's nice to know that if I jus' wanna play harp and sing into a mic without a PA that I can use that little rig.

I've been tryin' to lighten all my different gear setups since I turned 60 last month. :D
