musician's etiquette tip #37: never call anyone a "sound guy." call him or her the "house engineer." Linkhttp://twitter.com/stevenleckart/statuses/3414426185
Some of us don’t mind. Most of the time we get called “hey you” or ignored except when there’s a problem (if we’re doing our job right, especially in forms other than rock, you should never notice us); when a performer is courteous enough to recognize and thank us from the stage, I think that entitles them to use just about any non-offensive term that comes to hand.
Besides, it beats the alternative of being called an unsound guy.
I like calling them “Scotty”. See: Star Trek transporter controls.
“BS”, says this sound guy.
