    Eat everythig you likes and drink everything you need's... Stop with this paranoya ... The most importent think is - do not smoking before playing :)

    This isn't very related, but since we're talking about food...
    I have a friend who plays in a big band with me, and I sit next to him. And at every single rehearsal, he has some sort of candy and either a Coke or one of those glass-bottled Starbucks Frappucino things. And whenever we're not playing, he grabs some candy, takes a drink, and just keeps going. He told me (only slightly jokingly) that he waits until his trumpet is so disgusting that the valves won't move, and he's too lazy to clean it, so he buys a new one...

    In addition to avoiding certain foods etc., I bulid a small fire and circle it 5 times clockwise and 3 times counterclockwise. I then sacrifice a virgin(boy are they tough to find) and spit 3 times into the wind. Works every time. I think most of you are entering into the field of hocus pocus here folks. Seriously the only thing I avoid is alcohol before and during. Many of my colleagues seem to be able to handle booze with impunity; I can't.:cool:
