What is the biggest number of ppl you have played to ?
My band at the height of our popularity sold out the roxy in hollywood so about 400+
I think I played for 500+ once.
An ex-manager told me you only see the first 300 or so and it's all just black or a blur after that.
He was right.
Round 1500 at some sort of congress once.
Around 900-1000 people at a large multiple church conference about a year ago would be my largest audience.
I played for near 3000 people like 4 years ago, I was like: "wow what the **** I´m doing here!!!!!!"
That was when I was playing in a cover band and we were hired to play in some party at a University here in Caracas.... I still remember that day ....
my school band performed at a huge concert hall here, i have no idea how many people, it was huge. there were like 40 school bands from all over. so im guessing at least a 1000.
my personal band has only played for small groups of maybe 100-200people. i have a gig sometime this fall that will hopefully get more than that.
60,000 after a NASCAR race a couple of years ago.
10000 people in a football stadium (carol concert) but I also played to one person who went home in the interval!
How about playing on TV - does that count? And if so - where's the millions option - stupid polls!!
The largest crowd I have played in front of was about 4000 people, but I wasn't playing bass. I was playing trombone in the horn section for the 4Tops ans temptations on Motowns 25th anniversary tour. (1 night gig). My old band that I played bass in had several opening act gigs that played in front of crowds between 1000 and 3000 people
The largest crowd was probably ChicagoFest (when it was around), to about 2500-3000 people. Really great feeling. For the most part, we were putting about 800-900 people a night into the bars.
Nowadays, it's more like 50 people, but the playing is still fun!
round 250 at my brother's Bar Mitzvah...first gig too!
No TV does not count so don't diss my poll you !
If you want to put millions put it in the one that says 1000+ as in 1000 or more which, now correct me if I'm wrong, would include millions!!!!!
My man freddy,
I would suggest that you edit or delete that post.
Im guess around 300 or 400, maybe even 500. The choir teacher at my schools had me play bass for 2 plays, both times the place we played at was pretty full, one of the plays was sold out. And then at our Tri-School band thing there was a lot of people.
In my old band we did 3 shows with Fear Factory and 1 show with Stuck Mojo.
it were medium-size shows, so i'd say about 250 / 300 people..
About 400-500 when the school jazz band played at Disney World.
I've played in front of about 450 although usually it is only about 70-100 people. I would love to play in front of 1000's some day
