    I guess food really IS more important than music...that explains why I'm overweight and under-rehearsed!

    Our Symphony management had a buffet after concerts for the Symphony Society and invited the orchestra as well--good PR. The tables were in the middle of the room, so we orchestra members got into the habit of simply circling the tables; eating as we went.

    About three concerts into the season they moved the tables against the wall. Orchestra attendence went down.

    Bizarre things happen - at my last gig with the pop band I play in, we got free beer, but I had to pay for a bottle of water :shock:
