 I  watched the next band leader arrive, go over to sound guy, shake his
hand,  introduce himself, learn the sound guy's name and proceed to converse
with him  for a few minutes.  Watched the sound guy get busy making stage
adjustments  as this group sat up.  Heard the leader acknowledge the sound
guy by name  and thank him when 
they finished their opening number. 

I have the opposite problem, Ginny.  The sound guys usually know me (I've
been in sound in my area for 30 some years!).  Therefore, some of them try
to please me by feeding huge amounts of trombone into the monitor nearest
me.  What I really want to hear is the rhythm section!  (The trombone,
curiously enough, can be heard fine right out of the bell!!!)
