    with a really good band. im alittle nervous. they are serious about it. making press kits soon and such.

    how should i prepare for this?
    what can i do to make myself look better.
    they may have someone now from what he said but he has bad schedules that don't allow him to play.

    they have shows booked and everything.
    im willing to go, but am i ready?

    here is a demo thanks http://www.soundclick.com/bands/6/ameliastreet.htm

    thanks
    steve

    Just be ready. Know the material you've been given and you'll be fine.

    Remember, though, just because they are a good band doesn't mean they're the right band for you.

    I think you made a lucky escape steve-o. stick with your own band for now! :)

    It amazes me what passes for vocals these days. I cant sing, but I can do what that guy in that record is doing. Fortunatley for humainity, I know better.

    It just gets my goat, it takes no skill whatsoever to shout like that, absolutley none and yet it's so popular... ah, therein lies my answer.
