Have you ever wondered why rock bands stipulate, in their contracts with venues, that they must have bowls of only green M&Ms backstage? It’s actually a really smart thing to do.
When a modern rock band gives a live performance the electrics for the lights, instruments, and speakers have to be 100% correct. Any deviation from what is required in the contract could end in disaster – really! Fires from overloaded circuits, speakers exploding, brown-outs in surrounding suburbs are a real threat if the electrics don’t meet the standards required.
But the technical managers of bands have a problem: How can they know, at a glance, whether the venue has even read the contract they’ve signed?
One bright spark hit upon the idea of burying, deep in the contract, the stipulation that the bowls back stage contain only green M&M’s. If any member of the touring band sees anything other than green M&M’s they know, at a glance, the venue organisers haven’t read the contract. And if the organisers haven’t read the contract the electrical work is definitely unsafe. And if the electrical work is unsafe the band has the right to keep the money they’ve been paid and not play.

I’m completely wrapped in the work Steve and the boys have carried out. I can’t recommend them highly enough. My job was fiddly and they had solutions for every issue and the garden lighting they have installed looks fantastic. The have my full endorsement.
Steve’s been our electrician for more than 10 years – and now with his two boys as well. They’re prompt, reliable, helpful – and best of all, creative when we have a difficult problem either in the house or around the garden. Just recently they replaced our old lighting with brand new, energy and money-saving LEDs. They’re fabulous, a hi-tech leap forward.
We have used Electric Express many times in my business and they are always reliable and come out very quickly. Their work is always of the highest standard.
