Another story : I played a church job for Christmas 1998, had a great time, and was asked back for Easter. This was a small group, 20-30 musicians. When I didn't get a call this past year, and found out the music minister had moved, I went to the performance and found we were replaced by a tape. For me, it's not the money. They had something special, now they don't.
To Doug: If you voiced your opposition, that's enough. You'll make little progress with the regime.
To everyone else: Fight this problem as much as possible. If we don't someday tubas will dissappear to synthesizers everywhere
