Here’s a one thing to do during a live show that will make you look instantly more professional. During a live show things will go wrong, people will make mistakes, that’s just the nature of it. No matter how prepared you are, nothing will prepare you for the pressure of being under pressure in the live situation.
So when something goes wrong, or some one makes a mistake, act like nothing happened. It’s the first rule of acting, and the same goes for live music. Don’t stop, don’t curse or look angry, don’t point out your band mate and laugh, or even worse, give out to them. You think people don’t notice? They do! Forgot the fact that you are standing in front of a crowd?
Nothing looks more unprofessional than band fighting during live show, or band giving out over the microphone to the sound man. There is plenty of time for it after the show. Suck it up and act like nothing happened.
