Being inside music business comes with its advantages and disadvantages.
- Working with bands and pros, there are a ton of tiny details that must be perfected before a tour or recording will start.
Some band members are awesome and will eventually act like your friends while others can be a pain. In some cases, people have quit their jobs while they cannot handle the drama and neediness in the musicians. They tend to expect to be catered too in each and every way, right down to their heating and cooling preferences. Band managers are the ones who live through the scheduling while the assistants get stuck looking for the HVAC maintenance workers in every area to guarantee the stage is the perfect temperature to avoid any errors in singing. With the dressing rooms, the assistants are constantly playing around to change the thermostats on the band members’ heating and cooling needs. After a show or while while traveling, the driver hears all the constant complaints of arriving the heat or air conditioning. When one can find multiple members in one truck, it seems as if nobody can make a decision on the perfect temperature and finally end up too cold with the air conditioner or too sticky along with the heat. When it comes so that you can studio time, each musician is required to set the recording studio thermostat to somewhat of a moderate cool setting to ensure their voices really do not dry out or crack. As ridiculous as it can sound, a lot of the band’s success and collaboration will depend on on the HVAC system functions.
