Re: Stage Performance Guide For Your Bluegrass Band
Why do you spend so much time learning an instrument and perfecting your singing or playing abilities? If the only reason is to please yourself and inflate your ego then you should just sit in your bedroom making YouTube videos and stop wasting everyones time. But no, you do it because you want to share it with others -- the audience. They make an effort to show up, maybe put up some cash, or support the establishment spending money on food and drink and maybe even listen to find something about what you are doing to take away with them. So you need to show up with more than a state-of-the-art PA system, a shiny instrument and perform with your eyes closed. If you don't care about them they will not care about you no matter how good you are. In which case you have failed them, the person who hired you, and the music. No matter what the gig, someone is listening -- play for them!
