When you become a part of a group that is hired to play 60 - 90 minutes at a concert or 3 or 4 hours at a dance drawing from a library of hundreds of songs it isn't because you are lazy or ignorant that you haven't memorized the music, its because you are a
human not a computer!

Too bad Manny doesn't post anymore, I'd love to hear what he says about this.
