"Part of the point and attraction" ???  - What about just MUSIC being
the point and attraction?

At the risk of starting another, what is loop music thread - Why does a
"loop" show have to be about somebody putting the loops together - and
does the audience really need to be aware of this?

If I were not a musician that incorporates loops into my performances,
and I went to a show to see somebody like Rick Walker I don't think I
would be concerned with what you call the attraction to a "loop show" -
I would be going to the show to listen to some fine MUSIC.

My foggy point is - A "loop show" is the same thing as a "non loop"
show: it's all music, performed by musicians.

I hope I didn't just create a new monster on LD :)
