I think we have "flown through this barn before" but my two cents worth is "never!" As long as people with talent like you guys are willing to go gigging and endure the drunks and wannabee's... there will always be Arrangers. I'd bet Mason's favorite house cat that we will see some remarkable improvements. These folks know what they are doing and they know how to sucker-punch us when we think we are gaining ground on them... LOL!
All my best,
Do your best to be invisible... and kind.
