I think it stinks that the bands have to leave their reg. band members they play with thoughout the year at home for some cardboard cutouts that act as the back up band for the main figure heads of the groups. For example the Fireballs have a band that's been together for years, so their act is totally different than when you have 'sit-ins' backing them up. I understand it's about saving money, but there is musicians out there that have played with these groups for over 10 years that need to work too.
