I recently attended a show at the Dekker Centre, Alabama with Cher and the Bee Gees.
I left at the intermission. After one hour of that loud music, I’d had enough. I could barely hear the singing because the backup band was so loud.
The backup band should enhance the singing, not be competing with it and nearly drowning it out.
Why does the band play so loud? Doesn’t anybody with the band do a sound check beforehand?
I am guessing a majority of the audience would enjoy the performance a lot more with a lot less volume.
