So You've Scored Your First Gig...

You're excited, you're nervous, now what? Here are a few guidelines to follow to keep yourself calm and have a great show!

  • It may sound funny, but make sure you know when to arrive. Arrive as early as your venue will allow. This will give you time to set up and maybe have a rehearsal.
  • Find out if you can come in a day or two in advance to get your equipment set up. This will save you time and stress on the actual day of the event.
  • If you are just one of many bands on the bill, remember that showing up late can easily get you removed from the schedule.
  • In you are part of a bill of many bands, be sure to be early and waiting in the wings in case you need to go on early.
  • Be sure to tell your loyal following when you'll be playing. The show may start at 7pm, but you may not be on until 8:45pm. That is an important detail to share with your fans!
  • Prepare a set list! This will help your set(s) run smoothly and you'll always know what's next.
  • Most importantly, have a good time! Once you're on stage playing, your nerves will calm down and you'll be able to enjoy every moment!
Thanks for checking out The Beer Brothers Band's blog! Stay tuned for more next week!
