    That's great idea - running through the same sound system is a great way to reduce our collective footprint and I will be more than happy to plug into your PA. Thanks very much!
    Now we wait...

    I had almost the exact same scenario as you a few years ago. My reply was pretty much the same as yours too.

    The band's reply was something like - "We were thinking we could go through your sound system as we can finish and then get away early without having to hang around until the end".

    Words to that effect anyway.....

    I wonder if you'll get the same reply!?

    You scamp! All well & good in theory until you discover they rock Mackie Thumps or Behringer cabs. Or worse...

    Love the fact a band is using the amount of space available (or lack thereof) as a reason to ponce your PA

    Last band I worked with they used that as a reason but I think it was really because theirs were woefully underpowered for the venue & circumstances. No skin off my nose. Took me 5 minutes to patch them in & I was charging enough not to get my knickers in a twist about it. Their suggested solution made me laugh though.. swapping cables either end.. NO FLIPPING WAY WAS I ALLOWING THAT.

    Nothing thus far. I fear that I had better take my speakers just in case. Perhaps my email got junked.

    I love that in the same email is a comment about being plenty of space.

    Now Benny, perhaps your fame is spreading, and it's well known that you rock up with a six box, 5K Acme Earthquake Maker. It would be a shame for the band if that were to be out on hire that night, and you turned up with the reserve PA, a couple of QTX 10s.

    Perhaps the band's enthusiasm for plugging into your rig would wane somewhat?

    Yup - I'd actually rather they just ask me straight.

    The answer would still be no but at least they wouldn't be patronising me.
