So I am late to the game in giging, turned 56 in April. I have played out now twice as the main band (not open mic or other situations). I play guitar and sing and can do some minor things on keys as well as percussion with my drum machine. What I am bringing so far: My main/#1 PRS Second PRS with piezo for one or two songs, DI box and cables pedal board Amp head Amp cabinet Mic, stand Vocal processor pedal (must have) bag of cables, batteries and all the misc junk back up amp, back up wireless, back up pedal board I have not brought the keys as we have a keyboard player, though I could add something but it would be very minor. Nor have I brought the drum machine as so far the only place I would use it would be for hand claps on one song. My question: This seems like a lot of junk to drag around. Do you bring this much? More? Less? Suggestions??
