What food would you absolutely LOVE to play for?
Yes, I have to be careful to leave time before the next intermission when I do eat some.Hmmm. I'm seeing visions of popcorn stuck in my mouthpiece after a gig like that!
Good thing I clean it every time it's been in my mouth.
I'm a sucker for popcorn. No doubt I'd have ground up popcorn accumulating in the mouthpiece during the evening. Heck, in the down times, I'd see if they could hit my mouth instead of the bell of the sax. Much more challenging and I get a direct benefit! :bluewink:Yes, I have to be careful to leave time before the next intermission when I do eat some.
Actually, the biggest immediate problem is the pieces that fall between rods and under keys, and sometimes wedge a pad up or down. I've solved the open bell problem.
Long term problem will be the salt coating the sax. That's why I felt that the Chinese sax would be the safest for this gig. (Summer Mummers is an organization I've been part of for about 35 years in various capacities, and early involvement in it led directly to my current non-musician career path. Least I can do is play in the pit band.)
