How to Prep a Band for a Gig

It ain’t that hard, really.

  1. Hire good musicians and an interesting front person
  2. Pick the songs. Send them to everyone. If they’re originals, provide recordings and charts. For covers, make sure to send adequate info regarding which version. Don’t just say, “it’s on YouTube,” provide a link to the right version, dammit
  3. Give everyone a reasonable amount of time to learn the songs, then
  4. Rehearse once a week for a month to solidify
  5. Play the gig. Have fun
  6. Repeat as necessary
