Drums and P.A. are supplied and it's cheaper/better than having strangers in your home.
Finally, Canada rocks Eh! (pardon me, never mind, sorry.....)

I have to say, I used to be quite paranoid about all that. I had several "gates" people had to pass... First some emails; what are the responses like? Do they type in complete sentences? Use all caps? Then a preliminary phone call, etc.

These days I just email 'em. If they can show up, great. My garage is done over for music, double walled, triple locked, steel reinforced jambs and no windows (I guess I'm still paranoid, but secure lol). I have the advantage no one needs to enter my house.

Maybe I've been lucky. Any one have horror stories to put me back on my toes? :eek: ever since then, I always hang on to the buckle.
