Over the years I have noticed that in many bands the same few people move the kit at the end of jobs, while others manage to avoid this. Some bands are better than others: one had all the jobs organised by rota, which was great. My band just seem to get the job done without too much fuss. I will confess that on occasions I have elected to carry the bass drum as it's not too heavy and looks impressive. What's the best excuse you've heard or seen to get out of helping?
