December 2007 me and my band had a terrible gig. We played good, but the audience was nothing but a bunch of drunk childish pretty boys that were taking their clothes off and spilling beer all over the place. Complete silence after every song... NO applauds.

We didnt really do anything, I just got pissed off and tried to finish the gig as fast as possible. Atleast we got payed for that gig biggrin.gif

I've had some fun playing at smaller gigs where there is always some totally drunk idiot who thinks he can sing. So, I have used a real cheap broken mic and put it on a stand and let him use it. Of course it is always turned off or so low that no one can hear it. The drunks usually don't know the difference.

It works two ways, one is that the guy who is singing has a great experience in his mind and the crowd gets a real kick out of watching him make a fool of himself. They usually remember that they had a good time at your gig and really that is mostly what they are looking for.

So, the moral here is always have a good "idiot mic" handy if you are in the proper venue. If you are a pro, then I would have no clue what to do. biggrin.gif

Well, I try to do my best in every gig, but sometimes it's really difficult... so if there is no way to conect with the audience I try to end the show as fast as posible and drink some beer tongue.gif

I believe it's important to understand the nature of the gig,are you there because of the crowd
or the crowd is there because of you.
In both situations player has to enjoy,here's why. smile.gif
You are invited to play on private party,so crowd has to enjoy the music.
But if player has a bad time enjoying it,the crowd will notice it and everything will go pretty bad.
And now,you have your solo concert,crowd came because of you.
Since it's your solo concert you are enjoying it 100% percents,
crowd is there to adjust,they knew what it was about. wink.gif

And if someone throw a bottle on you...well,it's incident. laugh.gif

I think Muris explained this very well.. first off all you need to enjoy it by yourself smile.gif, thanks for explainin Muris.
