Re: Keeping your sets interesting

Hey Kaylon,

I dont think you have anything to worry about! YOu are a keyboard player, thats an instrument! People pay to see other people play instruments! You dont HAVE to do anything else!

If your music isn't the kind of music which fits dressing up in glittery stacks and star glasses, or leaping off the PA speakers, or setting your keyboard on fire, or spitting on the audience, or having dancing girls in cages, then don't do it!!!

(Although in my long experience, I've yet to find music where girls in cages doesn't work...)

I made a living for 15 years by being a band that looked at our feet for 1 hour 15 minutes, honestly, all of the suggestions people have given are good cool valid things, but the most important thing is this.

Are you playing the music you WANT to play...? Good... then chance are someone else thinks so too...

Keep on doing what you are doing is my advice... make the music interesting to yourself and the rest will follow...

I think ive mislead you guys. my setup involves an axiom keyboard and a korg padkontrol controlling my laptop. I don't know how to play anything but piano so that greatly limits my ability to play a live acoustic instrument. I feel like when I perform on stage I'm kind of separated and try to show off more than be involving.
