    My personal opinion, everyone wearing all black looks good, professional, and cool. You don't all have to wear the same thing, just all wear black. You'll look like you belong together. Black jeans, black shirts, black shoes.

    Don't go out of your way to draw attention, just dress nicely, and let the music top the other band, if you REALLY feel the need to compete.

    Just go have a good time, share the energy with the crowd, and be yourself.

    Song selection will also be important, not many highschool kids are zep fans, I'd reccomend picking at least one popular "flavor of the minute" tune, and play it well.
