After almost25 years of not being in a band (living my other life), I am questioning a part of my stage presence now that I am jammin with others again. I used to always stand on stage; after all, it was rock n roll. However, after so long jamming by myself, though I practice both sitting and standing, most of my proficiency has been developed while sitting down. As Im sure many here on TB will tell me, it is ultimately up to my own decision whether to sit or stand. But I want to ask, whats the general consensus on sitting, or perchihng, on a stool while playing live? Whether I should or not, some things I tend to consider, are · I noticeably play better while sitting/perching. · I am blind. Even while standing, I purposefully restrict my movements, so Ill never have an active stage presence. · We are a three-piece that do heavy rockin blues. That makes me think perhaps there should be a very active stage presence. · Generally, on stage I dress up a bitThink business attire with vest, rolled sleaves (no jacket), a wide brim fedora and yes, shades. Its a bit of a contrast with gray hair almost to my waist, but thats ok by me. · Though I sit, Im not just sitting there; I move and groove a little anyway. Thanks for your opinion(s) TB.
