What's going on world? It's your boy Slick, So Fo Real Productions, Real Beats for Real Artists. Today I'm going to give you five no no's of live shows. Number one, don't forget your soundcheck. Never go up on stage without a soundcheck. You're asking for trouble. Your audience will never know who made that bad noise. They'll think it came from you instead of the sound guy trying to mix while you're already trying to perform. So make sure you do your sound check.
Number two no no. Going on stage without mentioning your name. You have to mention your artist's name so people will know who you are. Mentioning your social media. Tell people to follow you there.
Number three no no. Making your songs to long. As an artist who loves music, you like to get in the zone. I understand that, but you got to pay attention to the length of your song as you're performing. Don't make it longer than five minutes, maybe not four, even three. Maybe you want to do even a medley. You got to keep people's attention and people's attention is getting smaller and smaller as time goes on. So remember that if you're doing your shows.
Number four. Slow songs. That's a no no. Don't do a whole bunch of slow songs. You can mix a couple of them in there, but for most shows, do not do a bunch of slow songs. You'll put your audience to sleep and they will wake up and forget where they are, and forget who you are. So remember that.
Number five, don't call somebody out if something goes wrong. Never do that. If you hear something go wrong, continue like nothing even happened. If you hear the bass man hit a wrong note, if you hear the sound guy not que the lights up right, or anything like that, what ever you do let the show go on. Do not stop the show. Do not look around for help. You don't have a substitute singer. You are the lead singer. The show must go on. Your audience came out there to see you. They pay for a show. They didn't pay for a rehearsal. So remember that! Five no no's of live shows. Y'all stay grown man. Slick, So Fo Real Productions, Real Beats for Real Artists.
