A few musicians really don't understand this concept. If you get paid for playing then you are at a job. Here is what you should do. 1. Show up early. 2. Have all your equipment ready to go and instruments tuned up long before sound check. 3. Have your music in order and set list taped to some inconspicuous spot. 4. Have practiced your music and if you don't use music have the songs memorized. 5. Be respectful of the owner, sound person, band leader and other bandmates. 6. Help your bandmates out in moving gear, etc. 7. Be sober. 8. Wear appropriate clothes for the venue. 9. If appropriate, mingle with audience during breaks and afterwards. 10. Thank and be courteous to the audience, owner, sound person, etc. What am I missing? The reason for this post is that I am in a band where a fellow bandmate is a brilliant musician but just not a team player. The band leader has given him talks on several occasions and is tired of babysitting him. We have a gig coming up but after that he will be let go.
