At a gig a few years ago a group of people talked none-stop. I was just about to tell them where to go when this big bear of a bloke (folkie beard, lumberjack shirt) beat me to it. He stood up (7'10''), turned round and bellowed 'I have paid to listen to these musicians (pointing at our guests from America) not you, so shut the f*** up!' That did the trick!

As the late great Ronnie Scott used to say "quiet please you're not here to enjoy yourselves"

If it's good they'll listen - if it's bad they'll talk.
(In a perfect world!)
