GUEST,highlandman at work Bands - democracy v dictatorship (22) RE: Bands - democracy v dictatorship 13 Mar 13

Lavengro, you are correct in theory, but I have seen in more than one situation that if the participants don't all have the same discipline and "rules of engagement" in the way they use the software, it can still get muddled up. Especially when engagements can be "pending" for a bit and not firmed up. It should work, yes, but it just doesn't always.

Of course I agree that all members should be encouraged to bring in the potential gigs. While keeping in mind that talents differ, and some are by nature much more productive in this way than others can be. (But all, barring disability, should be able and willing to tote crates.)

As to why bands don't survive... there are a lot more ways to fall by the wayside than to stick together. But in my part-time musical world, the biggest reason (once a group has established an identity as "us") is that life happens and people just get pulled different ways by their other responsibilities. And having to replace just one person can break down the synergy that made the old lineup work. People aren't interchangeable parts.
