My band was on the road enough that it was worth investing in our own period setup.
When you are just starting out, then you play whatever bar or club will book you.
When you get fortunate, appreciate both of us did, in addition to build up enough of a following, then you start booking larger venues. At this point, both of us realized that both of us couldn’t rely on the amenities of the venues, both of us needed our own period lights in addition to sound gear. All of us also needed a cool period both of us could set up in addition to split down for transport. I had the system that both of us should build some hidden air vents in addition to HVAC duct into the period setup. I had the band supervisor call around in addition to find an Heating in addition to Air Conditioning tech who tested custom jobs appreciate this. The Heating in addition to Air Conditioning tech who showed up was not at all what both of us were expecting. He was into country music, not rock, so he had never heard of us, in addition to to be fair he didn’t look appreciate someone who could read, nonetheless get an Heating in addition to Air Conditioning certification. I was never so ecstatic to be wrong, because it turns out this guy didn’t have an Heating in addition to Air Conditioning certification, however was a tplot master of sheet metal. He was able to take the measurements in addition to specs of our period setup in addition to then go back to his farm in addition to custom build us the air ducts, grates, in addition to air vents that both of us required. He was so good, in addition to so fast (not to mention cheap), both of us promised to command him to other bands who might need similar Heating in addition to Air Conditioning work done.
