So, I've been in an original band since January. We've changed members a couple of times, and are looking to have a new singer audition Friday. I've heard him sing, and he's pretty good. Says he can scream too, which is a plus for some of the music we might play. He sent me an MP3 of a vocal cover of his and it sounded pretty tight. We have two gigs booked, on in July, and one in early August. Both of them are supporting a national or international act. We got these purely through connections. Through the same connections, I learned that a rival band of ours dropped a gig and pissed of some management at the same venue. It's a 15 minute set opening, and he told us we could literally do anything (instrumental, acoustic, whatever we needed to) if we could get those 15 minutes down. Sent the covers home with the singer, that should be enough, and we can add an original or two. If he can pull it off, I'm going to say yes to that. Now the venue owner just posted a Facebook status asking for any bands interested in playing with another band June 25th. I said we were interested in playing, but needed details. Our set is only so long. Anyways, I know a lot of it depends on this new singer being able to work, but I'd like to really start promoting ourselves. I want to be known as a professional band willing to jump at opportunities. All our potentially paying gigs, a plus. However, I don't know if I'm getting ahead of our abilities. I'm also worried I'm badgering the owner, always popping up on any opportunity to play that venue. He's not heard us play yet, but we're booked their twice already this summer, as well as a potential third and fourth. Also, we're a high school band, and it's summer, so we have multiple weekly practice times scheduled for writing and rehearsing.
