Crazy dancers - was NOLA Blues Fest

Chipped teeth! That's what really scares me these days. Ya see, I have
these four beautiful porcelain uppers (caps) that cost 7K and I plan on
keeping them till death do us part. When I'm not singing I move the mic
stand away from my face. If I can't do that and I see arms and bodies so
close that I feel the the air move, I physically push them away. One
time Security actually had a young lady removed from the premises,
because she insisted on giving me a lap dance while I was trying to play.
A lotta people think it's ok to get on stage and jump around like
monkeys but it's dangerous. It's like a bull in a china shop.
There are tens of thousand of dollars in equipment not to mention
fragile boned musicians.
That's why The Stones had the Hells Angels Altamont pushing bodies off
the stage. That's why a fan got killed there.
Dimebag Daryell, of coarse, was murdered from a nut jumping on stage.
And the infamous Bill Haley, Comets show in the UK when "all Hell broke
loose" and nearly ended not only Bill's career but his life.

> Same thing happened to my boyfriend, crazy drunk dancer hit the mic nailing him right between the eyes, knocked him out for a couple of seconds. The stage barely fits a drum kit and the dance floor is just as small so any one playing this club takes a huge risk when it comes to getting injured by crazy dancers.

The musicians typically are more concerned about damage to themselves, dislodged speaker stands, damaged floor monitors, etc. to ever consider "goofy dancers" funny enough to laugh about...<grin>
