147 Putting music on stage


Live music, clicktracks and other music-making options

This time the Geeks discuss use of live vs recorded music for musicals.  Budget is always a concern when considering music on stage.  But what about quality? Some musicians are very good, but they may cost money.  You may be lucky enough to have volunteer musicians that are good — or not.  Likewise, some recorded soundtracks sound good, others, are pretty chintzy.  The Geeks talk about various options and considerations that can make or break your next musical.
