 Community klezmer band
Date:   2005-06-30 18:40

I coordinate a community band which is probably not a typical one, it's The L.A. Community Klezmer Band and I'm more of an (unpaid) musician "wrangler" who communicates practice times and gig info via e-mail, rather than a music director. We have about 15 active members. The biggest problem we have is people showing up late and being somewhat noisy as they come in late. I realize that people have lives outside the band and may not be able to make practices or may have to come late, but it irks the others in the band and sometimes band members want me to kick out or "fire" somebody.
What kind of "rules" would be good for an informal situation like this? Not just about coming in late, but other behaviour which might be problematic in an informal community band situation.
I'll copy this to the ethnic clarinet section.
