I'm confused. Was it the Wild Bill guy and his PCP buddies singing these surprisingly good harmonies?

Just read that Ike. Another good one. Keep 'em coming.

I'm always amazed at how much better my mixes are when the band is good.

Yes, I've found it generally helps.  :)

I did a sound job in the picnic area for a large recreational facility with a water park, lakes, gazebo picnic areas, the whole works.  Was some kind of business employee party.  They hired some classic rock bozo's and they couldn't even tune incorrectly off of one another.  Guitar, bass and drums were all over the place.  I left the roadie at the console, with instructions on how to pull gain if there was any feedback and went across the park far enough away to not hear it.

Worst sounding mess I've ever heard and the only un-tuned drum kit.  No sound check, just brought up the PA and did a mic and monitor check and they showed up, setup and started playing.  It sounded so schitty at first I turned a few eq knobs and moved a few faders then realized what was happening - grapped the roadie and left the area.

No sir. They were in on the Wednesday night and the matinee was on Saturday. Never saw the Wild Bill guy again but the "F**k You! Play some more!" encore request stayed with me, for some reason :P
The harmonies were from some guys who were covering CSNY tunes.
