…Then the singer tangles his foot in your cable, lurches forward, unplugs your cabinet with a screech, and bashes his forehead through the kick drum. The room is suddenly silent while you wonder why your strings make no sound. The greatest rock-n-roll moment in your band’s history? Maybe. But the show is also over – bloody and awesome as it may be.
More often, this foot-tangling disaster happens five minutes before go time, in which case you’ve got no show, no sound, and no epic moment.
This is just one reason you may want to take the time to master good stage organization.
