Default Band life: Tough all over

Interesting article from AP on band life in India.

Quote:
During wedding season, most band players sleep in cramped quarters in the distant suburbs of Delhi, with more than a dozen packed into a room, their instruments and clothes hanging from hooks on the grimy walls.

"We are all related, so we've learned to adjust, but sometimes it becomes a bit too much," said Raees Ahmed, coughing and drawing on a thin cigarette.
Reminds me of my summers in a Drum & Bugle Corp as a teenager. Gyms and bus floors.

We'll be lucky if people are still hiring DJs in a couple years instead of just streaming a spotify wedding mix.

I see people in my audience looking at their iphones while I'm playing. I can hear them watching You Tube videos during my show. Are people so rude to use iphones during a wedding or in church? It wouldn't surprise me.

No, the article was talking about how the musicians watch movies on the phones outside while they wait for the Wedding ceremony and dinner to finish. The bands part in the ceremony is at the beginning and end of the wedding.
