RE Girl Friday
Glad you explained that, obviously at Open Mic/Singers nights all who turn up deserve at least one spot, BUT re the mythical 50 individuals you'd have to set a limit of just one song each, and even then the max I've ever seen do a spot was 27 which was much more quantity than quality! But it's rare to get over double figures on a regular basis.

However I really don't get this giving each member of a group as many individual spots as well. For instance I've been to multi guest gigs where groups and solo artists appear. i.e one time I saw a six piece group do 45 mins followed by a solo artist do 45 minutes. On the above basis the 6 members of the group should then come back out and do 45 minutes each right? Crazy!
