When I perform, I work out of a case that sits on the floor. One of my agents said he doesn’t like the way a road case looks on stage. When it comes down to efficiency, it’s hard to beat a road case on the floor. I can look down and see everything.
My solution to not having a road case, but having a road case was to make a drape for the front of the case. You can see it in picture below:
Recently I recorded a few bits for a TV show and when I told them I work out of a case of the floor, they told me that’s not allowed. From a visual standpoint they don’t like that look. I showed them my draped case and it was immediately approved.
Thinking outside the box just a little to work around the problem really helped me out. The cloth takes up a virtually no space or weight for travelling, so it was a great solution!
