My band played it's first live show on the weekend. There's just 3 of us. We play a variety of rock covers, some easy, some pretty challenging. The show was a street festival with 2 other bands which were both very experienced. The other bands treated us great. I estimate approx 200 people watching. After reading a lot of posts on this forum about playing live (e.g. for the first time), I was prepared for a less than stellar show. In summary, things went off pretty smoothly. We played 2 sets and the 2nd was definitely easier. It did not take much time to get into it and focus on playing rather than being nervous. Our guitarist is pretty good but he was drinking alot and so wasn't very sharp. Our drummer (the singer) played really well. There were problems with some song sections and most of our endings were weak (hint to all: practice endings), the monitors were not as good as they could be, my cheap bass sounded cheap, I stumbled on a few intros where it was just me, but we survived! We are all psyched to do this again after some more practice. Any suggestions on things we can do to prepare better?
