Thanks, everyone:

My query is about what to do with cords on stage. I don't have a gig for which I have cords out amongst the audience. My cords run basically from my mandolin into my preamp into my monitor, and then out to the PA. So, it's all up there with me. I think simply velcroing them together in a loose way would be very helpful. I'm somewhat stationary when I'm on stage, so as long as they are accounted for and I do it in a similar way each time that should work.

Thanks, everyone!
