I saw a band several years ago in a popular Des Moines rock bar.  They were soooooo loud that you wanted them to take a break.  The guitar player used 4 4x12 cabs (in a bar!).  I really felt sorry  for the people sitting in his "paint peeling" zone.  This was a cover band doing a 4 hour show, and we left less than halfway through  - it was just too painful to stay.

Huh... I'm speaking at a conference in Des Moines tomorrow. You still in that area?

The bar wasn't by any chance... House of Bricks?!?

Howdy Tim!!!!   :thu:


I totally agree that breaks sometimes need to be determined by the crowd flow.  I also definitely believe in breaks--because I feel like I need them.   :thu:   I'm just remembering a few circumstances where I wanted a break from the band myself.   :)



Hot Tuna used to jam for hours on end without a break.... at around 130dB.  Hated that job.

Are you being serious about hating that job, or are you just making fun of me?   :D   ;)

Not a big fan of loud music.  Too many years of touring I guess.
Thanks,

Had a much nicer time with James Taylor, Harry Chapin and Dan Fogelberg, but you take the work as it comes.
