I played in a band whose principal cornet couldn't go on stage till he took a lucky dump. :oops:

I always make sure I have had a slash, cos I always need one once I get on stage. :?

Lots of valve oil too, its left in my jacket pocket to make sure its there on the day.

The final thing I do before I go on stage is count the chairs. Obviously, no-one is capable of getting their own chair, so I always have a mini panic attack : "I hope I've put out enough chairs!"
I'm always forgetting non-essentials such as conductor stands, and trombone chairs..

A final count before I head on stage usually calms me down.

A few bands ive played with used to play certains hymns on the day of a contest! I dunno wether it was meant to bring luck, but they didnt always work if they were!
Rainford Silver used to do this, but our new conducter said it was stupid and we wern't going to anymore.

But we used to play No. 82 and No.62 i think, in the red hymn books....

i usually wear my xmas socks with a fairy on but they're broke because we havn't been higher than 5th in the last 4 contests we played in...

number 43 is our all time favourite, recently we're playing 39, 37, 1 and 60. 43 is definately our contest hymn though, it hasn't brought us much luck though!
