gig attire...(no such thing as casual Friday...or Sat./Sun.)

Postby bloke » Thu Mar 14, 2019 9:51 am

Generally, the most casual attire I prefer to don at an on-stage "classical" music concert/recital is a black suit, white dress shirt, and long tie.

When there is a gig and a leadership person speaks up and says, "Let's just wear black slacks and colorful dress shirts. I think the audience would like that," this is an example of my strategy for attempting to discourage someone from repeating such orders.

...and - if that doesn't work - the next time, I'll don my "cats, flags, and fireworks" shirt. :|

You, sir, are making the textbook mistake of confusing a "rollerskating safety suit" with a "Michelin Man suit".

...I've grown so very weary of having to continually correct people regarding this issue. :roll:

The problem with your strategy is that you sit in the back with a tuba obscuring the audience's chance to appreciate your obvious wit. Better git one o' them clear plastic tubas... :tuba:

In-person, I don't strive to draw attention to myself (no bumper stickers; cars: silver, black, or white; usually: black clothes; soft-spoken, etc.)...

...but - when pushed - can be just as sarcastic as I am online...when pushed. :|
