Accomplishment and gigs - music

 

"For optimum amp tone onstage, plug your amp into your own AC outlet. . " - Eric Johnson

DOING GIGS

In my opinion, there are two kinds of performers:

1 - Concert performers -- who do well in front of a sit-down audience

2 - Club performers -- who do well in a noisy atmosphere

Knowing which kind of actor you tend to be can help you a lot in deciding where to play. For a lot of people, it's easy to be both types of performers but some citizens truly desire in performance in one air over another. If you want to be at your best, it's smart to be comfortable. So if this is an issue for you, take the time to think about it.

Next you have to be concerned about if you are going to be performing arts your own bits and pieces or covers or both. If you come to a decision to do covers, here are some good tips:

1) The song be supposed to actually move you.

2) Make the song your own, or else after a short time you'll just feel like "parrot" for a celebrity else's background (and to me there's far less ingenuity in that - just my judgment mind you).

3) Cover Songs are great ice-breakers and shouldn't be overlooked as great tools for any songwriter to use. Do covers, from artists who lend to your style in one way or another. Aperture with a identifiable cover song especially helps an interview associate to you and get an idea of where you're appearance from as an artiste . . . and also helps them associate more to your originals, too.

Of course, to play at most venues, you've got to be arranged to sell yourself. Here are some tips on this subject:

Get your Bio / Demo ready for the Concert Promoters & Club Owners.

I've read a bunch of stuff about preparing demo submissions for venues, with bio's and locks of hair and stuff like that - but I'm sure there's more to it than that?

You don't need much. No club owner or director is going to want a twenty-page book on you, nor will he/she be impressed with elaborate artwork and/or printing. Just a definite sheet of paper that for a split second and in brief states what type of dancer you are, what kind of songs you play, how you act together with an addressees and where you've played or are before a live audience . . . and a CD with both three or four whole songs, or six to eight songs that each fade after a minute. That, along with a friendly foreword and follow-up calls will be enough.

Performance angst can be an issue. Fortunately, most musicians overcome this in a short episode of time - I've found that going to open mics, just receiving up there and doing it has helped immensely. Find a accommodating group of citizens in your genres' scene.

Here are some more tips to help you. . .

1 - Know your data and your performances upside down and backwards. You have to be able to play your songs and not mess up under any situation, and the way to do that is to KNOW them well . . . memorization . . . live a song and functioning out each and every appraise of it until you know it blind-folded. Then, if a touch off the wall happens while you're in the average of a performance, muscle-memory and instinct will take over and you won't be thrown.

2 - Know your strengths . . . know which songs are "yours" and which songs aren't. In effect, build a actually beefy set list. When a big cheese like Bruce Springsteen cuts a new album, he'll best 50 songs . . . 12 of those wind up on the album we hear and the other 38 go to other artists to do.

3 - LOOK exclusive . Dress manually in a way that makes a statement. You know from my prior posts that I have faith in in dressing the way you continually dress; to not be pretentious or a bit you're not . . . but that doesn't mean that you want to look like the guy next door. You want to conceive an "image" . . . just make it an direct one. So you as a rule wear jeans and a t-shirt? Fine. Just add some accents that make it all yours. A exceptional pair of glasses (if you wear them), a very exceptional vest, a attire of scarves, purple boots or hand painted sneakers . . . doesn't matter what separates you from the be in the region of guy under your own steam down the road and doesn't make you look like you're difficult to be a big name who lacks genuineness or who has lost all sense of reality.

"With the above going on, you're going to FEEL confident, since you ARE . . . and THAT sells. "
