danb,

You gave "sound advice" to hobbs question. Good job!

I was head singer at a benefit dance at the Otoe-Missouria complex a while back. I had forgotten that I had asked two singers that do not get along, to come help me.

One of the singers physically threatened the other at the drum. I had to intervine and ask him to leave and cool off. I felt as the head singer, it was my resposibility to diffuse the tense situation.

I can say, it really affected the harmony and concentration for the rest of the dance.


I have heard there have been fist fights at other drums in the past. I wanted to make sure it didn't happen in my situation.
