Considering playing live, continued...

So playing live, this is very different from the performance in the home studio followed by mixing/tweaking/production, etc. I've played live before, both free and paid gigs, and not just one nighters but mostly one nighters. I have never been in a band that had a full support crew.

It looks like fun, and mostly it is a really fun thing to do while performing. When things go wrong, it can be weird-- not necessarily "bad", but it can be bad.

Setting up is not all that bad, tearing down can be a real grind.

The best way to get gigs is to know someone who is gigging, particularly someone who is doing multiple shows in your general area. There is a site that enables musicians to network that I've recently signed up for, I need to upload a track and figure out how their exchange system works.

Hi Utenzil, I see it's been a while since you've posted. I'm curious to know how things are going for you with the musician's network.

Oops, I made a booboo. I thought I had saved a link to your blog but I had actually saved a link to your December 6 posting. Then everytime I checked to see if you'd written anything new, it looked like you hadn't posted anything since then.

Well unbind that ancient link my friend, then Leap into the future and see what you've missed :-)
