• What’s in your event bag?

    For those of us that have been either on the road or experienced everything you could possibly think of at a venue, over time we tend to build up a trusted set of tools, equipment, gadgets, and supplies that we won’t leave home without.  What is in your bag when you roll into your next gig?
