  1. so I need to freak out for the talent show and maintain playing. Any tips on what gets the audience pumping?
     
  2. It's a talent show, don't worry about it.

    Oh, and remember, no matter what, you're not funny.
     
  3. Guitar flips are always good. They make people win BOTB's just because the crowds go nuts if the whole band pauses and you stand up front then you go into a sweet part of the song.
     
  4. play covers off tv shows and stuff everyone knows, that gets attention
     
  5. You could always go on stage naked, that'd get some attention...

    I used to do such a thing with the theme song from "Get Smart" and the one from "The A Team" (classic!). It worked nice as popular entertainment.

    Move your bass to the side, pull down your pants, and show them your junk. That''ll be a talent show act that nobody will ever forget :p

  10. Well, it IS a 'talent show', so just show your talent. Don't be boring, but don't be a jackass either.

    Breathe fire and spit blood. Then form a human pyramid with the whole band while riding a tiny bicycle. Kind of a cross between KISS and the Peking Circus.

    If it's a talent show, it doesn't matter what you play. Bands almost never win, it's always the piano player.
