    here is my complaint and suggestion for the recorders.

    When I'm Down Beating, I seem to whack a recorder or person directly behind me. and after i whack someone with my drum stick i just about lose the rythm(spelling?)

    so i suggest recorders give us some room. please. or at least duck or move when you see that drum stick coming at you. thank you.

      My complaint is when recorders record all weekend, and then put out a c.d for sale without the drum group's consent.

      I know there is a lot of issues and opinions with this, but fact is, if you are a singer and are travelling around on your own coin, and someone comes along and literally steals those songs it just isn't right.

      If you are a recorder and not a singer you can say the songs are for the people and what-not.

      I look at this just like someone taking songs from like a Metallica, Eminem, or Johnny Lang and sell their live recordings for profit.

        what bugs me are recorders, or even people WITHOUT a recording devices, come rushing in "the running of the bulls in Spain" when a certain groups start singing!! leaving behind a wide space of knocked over drinks, food, chairs tossed aside like a small tornado came threw!! and sometimes crying lil kids cuz they just got pushed over so they (the recorders) can get closer!!

        this is the main reason why i no longer sit beside ANY drum ... my partner used to sing with the likes of high noon, blacklodge, blackstone, wild horse, fly-in eagle so the recording crowds were huge!! and may i say VERY VERY rude ...

          The only complaint that I have is sometimes with all the recorders around,what little breeze there may be, doesn't get to the drum because of everybody standin' around!! Personally, I like the recorders being around. It makes you feel like a rock band or something.........it gets you pumped up.........makes you wanna jam out to please the fans.But I also understand the spectators viewpoint also.........it gets hard to see the p-wow with all the people standing around.

            I have smacked my fair share of recorders on the downbeat. Fortunately I have managed to keep my beat going.

            One lady had the nerve to stare at me all ugly after she got smacked on the lips while I was downbeating.

            Another time we were sitting near the grand entry area and were singing the grand exit song. While the dancers were going out I did a downbeat and hit a guy's recorder out of his hand and it flew in the path of the dancers, then the batteries came flopping out and rolled all over, it was cool.
            It is so sad that a family can torn apart by something as simple as a wild pack of dogs.

              At powwows where they are using wireless mics, the people standing around the drum interfere with the signal of the mic. Also ya just can't jam while someone is pushing up against your back holding a recorder over your head. No breeze, no movement, no space.
              Plus as some powwows, you will have points deducted (at some powwows with drum contests) for people recording or standing around your drum (like you can help it)

              Annnnnd you might even lose your wallet by some handy dandy pick pocket, or have feathers broke (those of us who come to the drum after dancing)

              People just need to give the drums some space, ennit!

                I agree with MNX that a singer can feed of the crowd and the ppl around the drum recording or watching, rock star feel.

                and the breeze is pretty much gone.

                and cant forget the one who are pushy and bump into ppl and bump into the singers.

                smacking a recorder with a drum stick is a hazard for the person standing too close.

                some of those recorders need to show some respect for the kids and parents and especially the old ppl sitting next to the drums.

                all good replies.

                    Complaint about recorders around drum...

                    The only complaint I have about recorders is:
                    1) they show lack of respect for back up singers. They all stand around and won't make room for back up singers. If they do make room, it's barely enough room for back up singers to blast or all fit in and sum are left behind to sing behind a row of peepz. *LOL*

                        From a tapers POV.

                        I tape drums that I like to hear for personal listening pleasure. Yeah, I have the CDs but the live stuff sometimes comes out better.

                        I was always considerate of the drum and their family around them. I would leave plenty of room while still getting up close, but some idiot would cram in front of me. I could start a song right up at the drum and finish about 5 people back.

                        Then there is the people that just push their way in and stand there while looking everywhere but at the singers. wtf!

                        But seriously, give them room, if you are so close that you get hit, you deserve it.

                        Really stupid people who think they are smart
                        and

                                What is everyone's opinion of drum hoppers? I don't like it when they just set in without asking or join in right in the middle of a song. I won't tolerate this with my new drum group. If someone wants to sing with us, I expect them to ask no matter who they are. Don't just come in the middle of...

                                Being on the east coast, I have seen my share of strange things at powwows. Since Im a singer, I will focus on THE DRUM.

                                There are a bunch of strange drums in the east. You know who Im talking about. Those drums that sing and hit the drum but you dont know if its northern or southern....

                                It has been said on here that the old guys arent teaching the youg guys the proper etiquette at the drum. What do you all think about this? What are some of the un-written rules of conduct at the drum?

                                Come on there's nothing wrong with a little friendly competition among drum groups. After all most of all groups know and get along pretty well with eachother. There may be some exceptions but that just adds to the contest. Now I don't want to hear from you winer's about how "real powwow singing...

                                Lots of good drums have come and gone. Lots of you are singers who have sung with different drum groups.

                                What are some of the main reasons why you won't sing with a certain drum anymore???
