...and I am nervous as hell.

We are going to play a concert in our school, since we have finished our school career. It is common that pupbils of the final grade organize a concert. We formed a band for this occasion. Noone of us has ever played in a band before biggrin.gif Problem is, there will be a lot of people around(about ~700) and we have hardly practised enough.
If I can, I will post some pictures or perhaps a video tomorrow.

Wish me luck wink.gif

Be relaxed and self-confident. The first gig is always difficult. You won´t be afrais anymore when you played some concerts.

Good luck!

+1! smile.gif

Move on stage, smile for girls, get in contact with the crowd, and just stay focused on the songs. Try not to tune on loud on stage and don't play anything between the songs. It will be OK! Have fun! smile.gif

Hey Gusys, I am back.

All in all it was an amazing experience to play in front of so many people.
We played 2 songs, The first one went pretty well, acutally I am pleased with our performance We didn't have any big mess ups... and the crowd was screaming biggrin.gif I am sure they enjoyed it as we did.
The second song didn't went so well, our drummer made some mistakes. We got nervous and performed rather bad. In Addition the sound on stage was poor. I could neither hear the second guitar nor the bassguitar. Nevertheless, it was an amazing experience. I am going to recieve a Dvd with photos and a video soon. If it not to embarrassing I will upload them as soon as I can. laugh.gif
I can say one thing for sure, This won't be our last concert wink.gif

Just kidding, of course! Congrats!
Mistakes happen at a lot of first gigs. "Learn by living," is the best motto that comes to mind ^^
