power structures

where we find groups of men "in charge" we will find conflict due to clashes of ego. Women are natural co-ordinators, but don't get too excited ladies, you have work to do, but will get there. I think it is time to start discussing this one before any more people get hurt in the world. peace

Re: Equipment for bands (Hall and Cafè)

If you are organising an event in the hall and need to take the likes of a kettle lead from the cafe, why take it from the guitar amp on stage, in front of the sound man who is about to run a show when there may be/ are spare ones in the sound team area, and more spares in the hall itself, if you kn...

Re: Piano Donation - What say you sound and musicians?

Playing piano at the forest awoke something in me which had been lacking for a very long time as I had no access to one, which I now see criminal. Bring it on. But where should it go? This should be decided before tuning obviously. Also a digital piano with midi out would be good for the stage, but ...
