    Try using some grammar in your English and you might get a better response. I can't tell if this post is a joke or what. :confused:
  3. Good luck with you gig! Nerves play a part to a greater or smaller part in any gig, but remember, whatever happens - enjoy it!!

    Is the Knitting Factory a jazz club?

    What a cool place to have your very first gig! Congratulations!

    Practice a lot, and get plenty of rest before the show. You'll be great!

    Knitting Factory rocks, great gig!!!
  9. I kinda miss those first gigs when the nerves were on the outside and I didn't remember what had happened on the gig afterwards because I'd been so nervous.

    Enjoy it!
    And use that nervousness before the gig to fuel your efforts to get ready for it, and when you're on that stage just play and have fun.

    I remember my first gig. It was at my school's homecoming at a bandshell. We had technical difficulties and you couldn't hear our singer. Our band still sounded good. Just get lots of practice in and talk to each other if you feel that something isn't going well.

    My first gig felt just like riding a roller coaster! I wish I could get that feeling back these days.

    naw its a music oreinted bar(i think i should have just said club...). alot of up and comming bands play there and some known bands play there also.

    now we are actually trying to play something close, becasue i dont live in ny, before that show. but i doubt we will on such short notice.

    yea il let you guys know how it went, and probobly toss some pictures up here.
