What To Wear & Not To Wear To Your Gig!

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by Bassist_Ben, Nov 11, 2005.

  1. Hey everyone,

    The most important thing not to wear is a white top to your gig! The sweat is disgusting i went to a gig at a local pub and the guy was sweating soo much and it was so noticable. Please add on some more!

    White shoes are very bad too. I made the mistake of wearing some white shoes once and when I saw the video of myself I wanted to cry, I looked so 80's.

    Cargo trousers, t-shirt, my "gig shirt" with all the crazy patches on it. Just be cool, you're the bass player, it's your job. Sometimes I'll go without anything on the top, when we do that, we all do that as a band, I guess it's just like the RHCP, sometimes you wanna let it all go. We would never go as far as the socks only stuff that RHCP used to do though.
  14. [B]Maybe you guys should wear some white linen trousers and no undies, then we can see what's goin on lol][/B]

    With the last band I was in, we all wore black suites. It gave us a really professional look and was fitting to the R&B/Soul-Jazz music we were playing. I made us recognizable at clubs and allowed us access to more upscale gigs.

    For the current band I'm in we all wear vintage 70's disco outfits. We play old funk and disco tunes. I've got a sweet white polyester leisure suit, white shoes, a white hat and a bunch of cheap gold jewelry. I have to get a picture to post in this thread. It is hysterical.
