    So my band had its first gig last night. It was for a 8th grader's party. Yeah the set up was sweet. The actual gig suck monkey bum. We almost got rained out. The music suffered because no one wants the gear ruined. I compeltely didn't know this one song we played. I couldn't lock in to a groove at all. Oh and the amount of people who were watching us was zero. Yeah The only one who watched was a basketball I threw out there cause I was done playing with it earlier that day.

    Bright side.
    2 friends like 6 blocks away came and said they could here us (Me) for their house:D :D

    How to fix this problem.
    Practice like the dickens. :bassist:

    Can't get a better audience then a bunch of drunk 13 year olds... :smug:
  3. Don't worry about it.

    Look at it as the gig where you got to get your feet wet.

    It's better to have a crappie first gig in front of some kids than on stage in front of a bunch of drunk people.

    A basketball as you only audience,.....it's better than a bunch of empty chairs.

    Better luck next time.

    I really doubt your 2 friends could hear you from 6 blocks away, unless you had crazy loud amps. What was the amp you were using?
