For 95% percent of musicians and bands, the ultimate goal is to perform a show in front of a live audience. But in order to put on an acceptable performance, there are a few things a band should do in preparation.
Tip 1) Practice. Of course this is a given. But I mean practice correctly and efficiently. Play your entire set all the way through. Musicians need to get their stamina up. You can tire out quicker than you think once you get on that stage with hot lights shining down and you rock out non stop for the entire set. Also in practice, listen to each other. Be aware of what every one in the band is playing at all times. This will help you “click” better during performances.
Tip 2) Come up with a set list. You never really want to go into a gig and just decide after each song what you are gonna play next. This can cause some problems and might stress some of the band out. Have a plan, and this will help everyone feel a little relaxed because they know whats coming up.
Tip 3) Be prepared to make changes and adaptations during the show. Discuss as a band that slight changes might need to be made to the setlist during the show. If the audience responds better to the upbeat stuff, then decide as a band if you will play what the audience responds best to, or if you just want to play straight through the set and hope the crowd doesn’t get bored.
Tip 4) Know how you are going to transition from song to song. One sign of a newbie band is when after a song is over, they all get quiet, tune their guitars for 2 minutes, talk to each other, and make the crowd wait in awkward silence for the next song. Have one (or more) member of the band talk to the crowd, continue to feed them energy. If the crowd gets super pumped during a song, don’t let that adrenalin and fun die down as soon as it’s over. Talk to the crowd, joke around a bit (as long as it is entertaining and not awkward), thank everyone, pitch your album or merch (but don’t overdo this), or just jump right into the next song and keep everyone buzzing.
Tip 5) BE CREATIVE. Come up with some entertaining and original stuff to display during your show. Audiences love being surprised in a good way. If it’s cool, they will respond well and you will have something that sets your band apart from most other (non major) bands that they see in local venues.
By working together, academics can generate a set of good questions that need to be answered in order to understand social reality, and journalists can provide the sort of rich factual basis to determine whether these theories have purchase as well as generating new theoretical questions.”
“Nowhere would this work better in my view than in the environmental field, which often involves complex scientific questions but meta-question about what the science actually means. Thanks for the previous quotes, from Jay Zasloff Black Cherrie from Memphis Tennesee has been good enough to participate in the R and R world that happensd to be a portiopn ofthe next opportunity for the next experience of Good Music.
The Ordinary from UK #Jelousy… Very patient. But meloncholy and not as affluent as the 20th of Spring and all that has ever. Bad Season One more Dance #8 and this is a personal favourite when I can recall the different types of acts that dance may be great.
With thanks from

Now, many people keep asking “Why would you call this WordPress.Com site SKATEFITNESS?”
That’s a very good question. The reason is simple. Students Keeping Active Through Education with Fitness is the greatest exercise you can have. Students Keeping Active is so broad.
It could be: Students staying physically involved with philanthropy(501(3)C, Awareness Groups and community-volunteer involvement), Civic Clubs(Like: Fraternities, Cliques, Societies, Coveted Gangs, Dance Clubs, Small Business Affiliations, Corporate Affiliations and so on…), Employment(For-Profit or Non-Profit), Athletics(Traditional Sports and Action Sports), or just staying busy(drinking a beer, smoking a bowl or writing a book). Keeping Active Through Education is much more simple to explain: you are a student every day at every moment in life. You will never stop learning, so that means you are always being Educated.
We, as a Union(UNITY-COMMUNION or COMMUNITY), with For-Profit, Non-Profit, 2 scholastic chapters, and High School Volunteer Litter Crew, have given our very heart to become an established Service to any single person, any single agency, any single government, any single institution and any single entity of inspiration.
SKATEFITNESS is just another way to give thanks to those young high school students that gave their heart to change the status-quo.
Now that you know that, Students Keeping Active Through Education or SKATE Club is a club that every single living thing can partake in, come show some love to those that we are inspired by:
THE SKATERS THEMSELVES!!!!!!
THANKS GOES OUT TO THESE WIILD BRED BADAZXSES like Corey Kennedy from the REAL FRONTIER

Bottem line and moral of this story: Love your freedom, enjoy life and always be a Student Keeping Active Through your Education. It’s a beautiful thing.

The only thing cooler than finding the right connection to become a portion of history is the timing before finding the right connection. Ryan Scott Depuy is a Rockstar, that will forever be remembered as an elite soccer player.
