hopefully some of you rock stars can help me out. i play in an 8-piece band. stage setup is simple - rhythm section in back, singers, horns, percussion in front. now, the backline is used to just looking at each other and grooving. we've gotten feedback about that - apparently, people like that we actually laugh and interact with each other on stage. we look fun! frontline...well, i was really checking them out over the past few gigs, and they're really....blah. they stare at the ground, kinda look around, don't interact with the audience....you know? it's a weird dynamic since the percussion player is the leader, and has that role of talking to the crowd and getting them hyped. but, i dunno, it always LOOKS as if the frontline is phoning it in. musically, they're awesome...when they're ready. we've tried talking about the feedback we get from the crowd, we've tried videotaping our gigs so they can see how terrible it looks. nothing. suggestions? no firing, please. we can't afford to do that right now.
