So my band is throwing around the idea of doing our bar gigs without breaks. We find that we get people pumping, and then next thing you know, we take a break and the energy level of the place drops and it might takes a songs or 2 to get the energy back up after the break. But, where we're most concerned is that during our last break before our last set, a good amount of people take it as a cue for them to leave. So what we're considering is doing our bar gigs with no breaks. But, we will have individual members in the band take a break for 10-15 minutes. We'll have a couple of songs with just the singer and keyboard player or guitarist to give the rhythm section a break. I'll sing a few songs to give the singer a break. We'll do some power trio stuff to give the keyboard player a break. Anybody tried anything like this? If so, how did it go over with the audience? Any issues for the band?
