How Soundmen Can Keep Me Happy

(cpntinued from here)

 

7. Dress Nice.

 

You are a reflection of me, so come on…step it up.

 

Not that I’m unsympathetic to your job, crawling under, over and around the stage in 100 degree heat on a dirt field in a fairground.

 

I’ve always wanted to ask (but actually don’t really care) who came up with the soundman wardrobe anyway?  You know the one: the dirty shorts, the Nike shoes, the t-shirt with all the stains on it and the lanyard with the three dozen laminates on it.

 

Okay, I might wear jeans with holes in the knees, a t-shirt with the most obscure printing on it (least someone else can be seen with it), and a flannel shirt that I got from a thrift shop…but for you…I’m thinking a polo shirt and dockers.

 

Not cool?

 

Who said you ever looked cool to begin with…you’re a soundman, dude.
