Ok, so now you have your groundbreaking song and you have people listening to your music. I think it is safe to say that your fans will want to hear you and your songs in an experience that they won’t be able to forget. Are you ready? Let’s find out. Perhaps the band meets up to rehearse songs, once a week, twice a week? What about the show? How long do you practice? How do you practice? These are essential elements I see missing from bands that are looking to cross over to mainstream and what holds them back. Some bands think that having a live show locked down to every movement takes away from the live experience or lessens the truthfulness of the show. Could it? Yes it can do that if it is not done properly. So can going on stage and fumbling around or playing out of sync and allowing your audience to take you unprofessionally. Bottom line is that you have to practice you have to learn your band and the movements. Put on an exciting show, practice so much that even a rehearsed show looks nature and happening on the spot and don’t be afraid to practice with issues that may arise when performing so you and the band are ready for them when they are most likely to happen at some point.
