\r\n Default Texting on the bandstand\r\n

\r\n Played a wedding gig on Sat night and the trumpet player, who is very good, was texting during the rests. Then I look over and he\'s taping one of my solos.
\r\n
\r\nIn the five years I\'ve been a school teacher and not a musicain has the world gone insane?
\r\n
\r\nPS My last ever day as a classroom teacher is May 27th. I tried but if I have to give up my horn I\'ll die. I\'ve been so drepressed this year I\'ve lost over twenty pounds and I had to put safety pins in my suit to make the gig.
\r\n
\r\nThanks for the support from you folks over the years, letting me vent and keeping me honest. I mean that. There are many special people here.\r\n

    \r\n Texting or checking your phone on the bandstand (or in rehearsal for that matter) is taboo, as far as I am concerned. Unless, of course, there is some sort of emergency.

    \r\nThat trumpet player deserved a slap on the back of the head!

    \r\n I gig once in awhile with an LA session drummer. He told me that texting is very important. Contractors will text a bunch of players, and the first one that texts back gets the gig.\r\n

    \r\n A couple years ago I was in a band with a bass player who did this. But he didn\'t stop playing to do it, just kept his left hand working. And he was sexting. And showing the rest of the band the conversation in the middle of the set. Classy.\r\n

    \n Likewise- I\'m not sure why recording another player\'s soloing is that bad (ok- it\'d be polite ot ask but I don\'t really buy that its a big deal). the texting, however is another matter...\r\n

    \r\n Personally, I\'ve never thought it was even sort of okay to do that. I mean, when it\'s time for a gig, or even practicing at home, it\'s time to do that. Adding a phone into the mix adds one more unnecessary distraction to an already too distracting world. It\'s unprofessional, and does make an impact on the playing, in that the person is thinking about the conversation, not the gig.\r\n

    \r\nI think no matter what the gig, it\'s no good. I saw a NAME bari player texting on a gig more than once and I lost total respect for him.\r\n

    \nAnd I can beat that one. I was on a gig one time and noticed the drummer had set up a tiny TV next to his drum kit and he was watching a ball game during the gig, while playing! At first I couldn\'t believe my eyes. Once i was convinced he really was watching TV while playing (!!!), I fired him after that gig. To this day, I can\'t believe it.

    \r\nTexting or talking on a cell phone on the bandstand during a performance is just as bad, maybe even worse. Totally unprofessional.\r\n

    \nare certainly shared by many people, so I would never pull out my phone at a gig, in a formal rehearsal, etc. I know lots of players that I respect greatly who are offended if people (participants) text at jam sessions.\r\n

    \r\n The use of cell phones in general has made our society incredibly impersonal, and very disrespectful IMHO. When you are at a gig, or a dress rehearsal, that means you are at work. I agree that cell phones do not belong in the workplace for personal use...doesn\'t matter where you work.
    \r\n
    \r\nMy day job is in health care. It makes me sick to see how many patients, who could very well be any of our parents or grandparents, get neglected while trained medical personnel are texting and talking on cell phones. The most common answer to the question of why they need to be constantly on the cell phone is something to the effect of, "I keep it on me in case of an emergency with my spouse/ kids."
    \r\n
    \r\nI was a kid before cell phones were out there, and I got by just fine...so did my parents.

    \r\n Our keyboard player stopped playing mid song to answer a text from his then under 21 girl friend who was at the front door of the club and the doorman would not let her in. He wanted to leave the band stand right then to get her in. The band leader ( drummer) told him NO and wait till we finished the set. His latest BS at our last gig was leaving the stage during a song because he had to pee. No class.\r\n

    \r\n Personally, I think it\'s an illness...a classic case of addiction, no different than the internet addiction we heard so much about when so many people were first getting "online". It\'s totally unprofessional on the bandstand no matter what the excuse is...but so are many other things that people are often willing to overlook...such as taking a drink while the band is playing (regardless of whether it\'s beer or water). Even on informal bar gigs or outdoor gigs, I hate seeing a musician swigging from a bottle of water or a glass of beer while someone else is soloing. It\'s unprofessional, disrespectful, and distracting.\r\n

    \nUp until last Saturday, I\'d have agreed. Here\'s a plausible "excuse". I got a call on Thursday that my Saturday night would be hosting an old blues legend -Tommy Brown - He had a #1 record in the 50\'s and a bunch of singles - Anyway...it was his 80th birthday and we were to play a half dozen of his tunes with him sitting in. One song in particular had an intro that was all sax. Just a half dozen or so notes, but it kept dropping out of my head and charts are a no-no on stage with this band. Being as I had both a Friday night gig and a Saturday afternoon Derby party gig, there was little to no time to practice this stuff. So - I loaded it on my handy iphone and headed out. Tommy tells a lot of jokes and interacts well with the audience. He also just calls songs at random. After each tune, I\'d put the iphone against my ear while he was doing his thing and listen to that damn intro so I\'d be ready if / when he called the song. Finally it happened - and we were off and running. Too bad he changed the freaking key on us. I still flubbed it, but it was a great to at least think I had it right (thanks to my handy iphone) until the rest of the band came in - go figure
    \r\n

    \r\nAs for drinking on stage while you\'re not playing - it\'s a great reason to be a sax player instead of a bass player or drummer. Those guys work hard so we can drink! What else are we supposed to do while we stand around half the time waiting for our solo? You can only snap your fingers and just "look cool" for so long before you get parched..... \r\n

    \nWhile I agree about the beer, how in the World is it unprofessional to put down a bottle of water on a gig? I, for one, sweat like a trussed hog under stage lights and have learned through painful personal experience that failing to remain hydrated is a quick trip to a split lip.
    \r\n

    \r\nAs for cellphones on the stand, I hate it. When my wife was 9 months pregnant and ready to drop any minute I HAD to take a gig out of town to keep a long standing gig. I had my phone on my stand the whole time and felt like a total heel for it, but it really was one of those emergency situations. Didn\'t mean it was fun though.\r\n

    \r\n I think part of it is that people feel that they\'re good enough to text and play at the same time. I think they believe they\'re good enough to not have to pay complete attention to the music. Especially if it\'s music that\'s been played to death.\r\n

    \r\n It is unprofessional and the leader should warn the musician doing it and then ditch him if he persists. It is rude and disrespectfull to the audience, and fellow band members . It is no different than sitting in
    \r\na restaurant with someone and they are texting or speaking to someone else on the cell. I have seen couples who looked like they were on a date and one of them is rapping on their cell...what could be that important...nothing thats what.
    \r\nI had a band leader of the big band who wouldn\'t tolerate guys going on the band stand with a drink, and especially having
    \r\na drink during the performance. He told me he survived as a musician for 50 years plus because he stuck by the rule no drinking on the job..he said he would go to town after the gig though. Texting on the band stand...give me a break\r\n

    \nNo, but he would have during a bass solo. Everyone talks, why not text?\r\n

    \r\n I rarely if ever check my phone during a practice, I\'d never do it at a performance. It\'s just something you don\'t do.

    \r\nOne time we saw a tuba player in our band with his phone out so we took it and set his language settings to French. Then it got taken up by our director.\r\n

    \r\n People just need to know when it\'s not appropriate to txt or take a phone call on a cell phone. During rehearsal or gigs, turn the phone off. It distracts your fellow band members and it also takes away your focus from the music. If you go to a show as part of the audience turn the phone off. And most importantly...do not talk on the phone while driving!!!!\r\n

    \r\n \r\n And I can beat that one. I was on a gig one time and noticed the drummer had set up a tiny TV next to his drum kit and he was watching a ball game during the gig, while playing! At first I couldn\'t believe my eyes. Once i was convinced he really was watching TV while playing (!!!), I fired him after that gig. To this day, I can\'t believe it.

    \r\n GAWD! I thought that could happen only here in the People\'s Republic of Cellphones (pronounced mo-BILES). Several weeks ago, I went to Yangzhou, the veritable hub of Chinese culture, to listen to a band and watched as the singer texted somebody during the pianist\'s solo.
    \r\n
    \r\nHere, the texter\'s thumb ailment is rampant. I\'ve seen four people traveling on an e-bike while the driver texted as he crossed four lanes of traffic, completely oblivious to the fact that he narrowly escaped becoming roadkill by four different manufacturers\' automobiles.
    \r\n
    \r\nPeople are text crazy here. Bus drivers text while driving in the fog.
    \r\n
    \r\nWaitresses text while they take your order.

      Default Texting on the bandstand

      Played a wedding gig on Sat night and the trumpet player, who is very good, was texting during the rests. Then I look over and he's taping one of my solos.

      In the five years I've been a school teacher and not a musicain has the world gone insane?

      PS My last ever day as a classroom teacher is May 27th. I tried but if I have to give up my horn I'll die. I've been so drepressed this year I've lost over twenty pounds and I had to put safety pins in my suit to make the gig.

      Thanks for the support from you folks over the years, letting me vent and keeping me honest. I mean that. There are many special people here.
