Phil Manuel replied to Jason Derrick's discussion Gig length, set list, originals vs. covers, etc. in the group Coffee House Players
"on the topic of whether to use a music stand or not... We use to play 3 45 minute sets, working without a net (no music stand).  Sometimes, we would play a club and do 5 hours, but always took a 15 minute break after 1:15 or so.  Still no…"

"Our four member group usually does about 3 hours or less, depending on the venue.  It helps us that there are three who sing and we take turns.  We use stands and it doesn't really seem like a problem. Since we an older group…"

"I'm an old guy, racing through my 60s and have been performing for most of those years and have a rep of about 1000 songs, both cover and orig. I began using a stand a few years back when I saw Bob Dylan using his prompte. I position it a bit…"

Terry Angelli replied to Jason Derrick's discussion Gig length, set list, originals vs. covers, etc. in the group Coffee House Players
"Jason you've hit on a great topic! My gig experience is mostly with bands in bars but much of the information already stated is similar or identical and applies to acoustic gigs so I won't duplicate what has already been said. Much like…"

Jim Yates replied to Jason Derrick's discussion Gig length, set list, originals vs. covers, etc. in the group Coffee House Players
"Hi Jason,    Most of the info you've been given so far sounds like what I would expect for a bar gig.  We do more coffee house gigs which usually consist of one set, 45 minutes, of open mic or opening act, then we play two 45…"

Luis Motta da Silva replied to Jason Derrick's discussion Gig length, set list, originals vs. covers, etc. in the group Coffee House Players
"Hi! My experience is not very long, but I hope this helps... 1. Gig length: Reading the previous comments, I understand that 3 or 4 hour long gigs are not uncommon... My trio usually plays 20-21 songs per gig, in two sets of 10 or 3 sets of 7, with…"

Jason Derrick replied to Jud Hair's discussion Hey Simon & Patrick experts ... is this a great deal or just a good deal? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Jud, it looks very similar to the Songsmith on Fat Sound's website here (about half way down): http://www.fatsoundguitars.com/store/acoustic-guitars-for-beginners/godin-guitars/godin-guitars.php If he paid their asking price of $339, then his…"

Daniel David Trent replied to Jason Derrick's discussion Gig length, set list, originals vs. covers, etc. in the group Coffee House Players
"I used to use a music stand for solo bar performances, but no longer. Image is important as a performer, and being seen with a music stand only says to people that you are not ready With sets I used to write them all out and then normally never…"

Jason Derrick replied to Jud Hair's discussion Simon & Patrick Cedar Folk sound demo ... A couple of new covers in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Great job, Jud! I agree with most of the sentiments expressed. Nice job on the Travis picking! In terms of audio quality, Cowgirl did sound better, but again, that's due to proximity rather than technique. I've had good experiences with…"

"Just a link to a nice little app on the Seydel site.  Choose the key of the harmonica you have, and it will show you the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd position uses - or enter the key of the song, and it will give you the harp 1st, 2nd, and 3rd…"

Phil Manuel replied to Jason Derrick's discussion Harp talk! in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Yeah, that's a big harp, and too big for my rack. ;-)  Now, this one is a bit more standard looking, but still you may have trouble finding one.  It's called an "Aussie Harp", made in Perth.  I happened upon it,…"
