Well, none of the above or any of the above, actually, depending on how responsive they are. The kind of audience I hate is one with no response to the music, whatsoever. Grumps may be close to what I mean. Say a country club cocktail party where the music is just "window dressing:" You play a great tune, end it, and no one looks your way, no clapping, nothing. They just keep nattering away over their cocktails. I've only been in this situation once or twice, luckily, but it's pretty deadly. Of course if the money is good, I don't care that much. Still, that would be my most hated audience.
