    I finally got my feet wet...was nervous as hell leading up to it, but after the fist two songs, I was thinking to myself...When do we do this again?? the croud loved us, and we got paid very well, so it was a great night...I messed up a few times but was able to get right back on without anyone noticing...will have some pics in tyhe next few days...

    That's all it's about. Live performance (IMO) is 5% skill, 5% sound/equipment, and 90% ability "to get right back on without anyone noticing".

    Good for you! Congrats.

    i had my first gig with my band saturday night also. it went great and the crowd really dug our tunes (especially 'Ol Man Whiskey' where we buy a bottle of Jack and give shots to the crowd). the bar did so much business (our band seems to draw a lot of drinkers...) that we got a $100 bonus :D . i'll post some pics when i get a chance

    pictures are finally up on our site, not great, but decent enough to see a little, I'm not sure how to insert a link, but it's on www.proudshovel.com
    check us out, and for anyone nervous about their first gig, it's nothing, have a few beers, and pretend your playing for your friends in the practice room
