Sun block

Recently we played at a festival here in San Antonio.  I knew things were going to be bad when I saw that the stage was facing the sun.  Sure enough as soon as we started we began losing the shade we had on stage.  I was ready to call it quits because I was worried that the sun was going to ruin the reeds on my accordion.  The reeds on the accordion are held in place by wax.  Wax and sun do not mix.  We kept moving back to try to stay in the shade, until we had our backs to the rear of the portable stage.  Needless to say, there was no escaping the South Texas sun.  Luckily my accordions turned out ok, but I feel people should take more consideration when asking bands to perform for them; especially outdoors!  Stay cool.
