Imagine if all clubs were built for live music; that clubowners spent as much on sound systems as they do on decor; and all you had to do was set-up and play. Well, forget it. There is only one Hollywood Bowl and chances are it’s not your next gig. More likely, the acoustics at your next room will be just as bad as the last, maybe worse. More likely, the next clubowner’s “vocal smasher” is older than the last one, and as usual it will be you and your group that suffers.
