1 Hipbone 11 months ago I’ve been trying to get it into the heads of my band mates that we need to be able to strip it down when we play small dinner set type venues. The drums are the main culprit. Now we’ve had a venue cancel a show last minute because they are fearful of having a “full band” play. I’d love to do accustic gigs where they would be appropriate. I hope this cancellation gets the point across. Anybody have advise on playing to the dinner crowd? I’m thinking a full drum kit is a no go.
