    Always good advice from Bob Abdou. Today, as Bob showed us , there are many options for “sound systems”. You can obtain whatever fits in the majority of your type of shows. Especially good to have your own as a “backup”. Sometimes the facility where you’re performing may a non functioning system when you arrive, or the person with the key to the room where the sound system is located is not there to let you have access . I found out these problems many, many years ago. Be prepared for any situations that may cause you problems. Thanks to Bob Abdou ( again) for his wise suggestions.

    thank you Bob Isaacson for your reply, I try and keep my tidbit within a minute. You bring up a good point about clients not knowing how to use their own system or the key.
    Having one owns sound system also shows that the performer is the complete deal, no mess, no worries.
