Three Tips For a Great Live Show
Have you ever tried to figure out why you enjoy some live bands more than others? What exactly makes one band’s show more electrifying to the audience than another band ?
First, is the obvious – music. But not just any music works well in a live setting, does it? Have you ever been to a rockin’ show and the band breaks out a sad song about global warming or their sick grandma that makes everyone start to cry?
Well OutBack tries real hard NOT to make you cry, but to put you in a happy mood!! Since not all songs work well live, not all songs should be performed live. We watch the audience and work together at playing what the audience wants to hear.
Second, is crowd interaction. With our “guess the song or artist” contests throughout the night and sometimes a little back up from a good singer in the crowd we enjoy interaction!
Our eyeballs are on the crowd. We try to make a connection…… maybe even pick on someone ( in a fun way), or get them to sing along.
Third, dress. Again, people go to live shows to be entertained. So we entertain them. We can be the court clown and release our inner rock or country self and we like to dress up and look like we care about the event we are playing for. We don’t like looking like we just climbed out from under a car or came off the range after four months. We feel when you try to look good you feel good and when you feel good you can play better!
