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.

This is no Show-off

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.

Big Talk

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.

How many of you know that chancer are %70 that your mother was in love with Michael Jackson in her teenage, and even adult years?


They have every right to remember the King of Pop. Michael Jackson is undoubtedly one of the most famous artists for revolutionizing dance. Why?

What are the odds that you have looked at my previous blogs? Do you see a trend?

The trend is …. DANCE!


Previously stated, this man named Michael Jackson was and could possibly still be the king of pop.

Previously, we asked why. I will tell you WHY.


In the late great 80’s, Michael stylishly hovered across the floor backwords as if he was walking forwards. The crowed indefinately though it was some gimmick until they realized, they were watching him do it. After the first, second and third appearance of the “Moon Walk,” Michael was the biggest phenom of dance history. Bigger than “The Twist,” bigger than “The Humpty,” and it is nearly safe to say, bigger than disco(also known as discotheque) itself. 

          It wasn’t until the late 90’s that, Usher Raymond, whom goes by the stage name Usher, began his legacy as the fly guy who danced his way into a singing career. Raymond stated in an interview, “my biggest inspiration is Michael Jackson.” So, let me get this straight. Michael influenced Usher and Usher danced choreographes on stage until he was platinum? Wow, that sounds cool( as little kid thinks in his hear,”I wonder if I could be just like Usher. I wanna be just like him”). So0o0o0o, I guess it’s no suprise that when Lil’ Bowwow or the king of BET known as “Mr. 106 & Park” started doing the Crip Walk and Harlem Shake on stages across america, he inspired others to be “Like Mike( haha a reference from Trick Daddy and the song “Basket Ball” by Lil’ Bowwow ). Apparently this had started a craze among the hip-hop nation of dancers (Lets not forget about the late-great B. Spears, NSYNC-whom is still awesome-, Backstreet Boys; the pop culture whom had a say around the same time). Before you knew it, Bowwow had Omarion and B2k tearing up the dance stages. With plenty to go around, this was a great opportunity for B2k, as a whole crew of dancers, to start the dance videos, which captured hip hop culture as it was and still is today(Thats another blog at another time; Dance Videos). It wasn’t too long after that, that the new ledgend by the name of  Chris Brown had sprung up. With these 3 names, the entire dance culture was the beginning of the compositive, wealthy and healthy future of Hollywood dance, Music dance and they deserve to be deemed the Dukes of Hip-Hop Dance culture.


—–Now, because the industry is fairly tainted as of the 2012 dance season, it’s imprtant to acknowledge that, nothing deserves to be stereotyped as a whole. The dance field is the MOST DIVERSE FIELD OF ANY, I REPEAT, ANY ENTERTAINMENT FIELD. Music has the same thing; a tick, a rub, a smack, a synth and a voice oh, and a note.


Dance, however, has a different attitude in every individual. Musica can be copied. dance cannot be identical.


Feel free like LeeAnne Womack and dance if you get the chance. Don’t sit it out.


Thanks, ONE Love Too

Image What do you do when you feel like something is missing out of the equasion? Do you retrace your conflict back to the mistake or are you “that guy” whom believes everything happens for a reason; in which case, you believe a lie? Maybe you are the one that finds a new plan and reimplicates the initial layout. Whichever scenario you may apply to yourself, one knows that something just doesn’t seem right without that missing piece.

Well, thinking back, my idea of the missing puzzle piece was Hip-Hop. You see, hip-hop is not a style, hip-hop is not a type of music. Hip-hop is not a type of person nor is it a place you can find. In every definition of the true meaning of Hip-Hop; Hip-Hop IS A Culture. Now, one might ask; what is your definition of culture? properly states: “The total of the inherited ideas, beliefs, values, and knowledge, which constitute the shared bases of social action.”

If Hip-Hop is considered a culture and its valuable knowledge is its beliefs and ideas, what is the system of belief behind hip-hop?

In my opinion ( like the back; where the good Lord split you-we all have one), Hip-Hop is a culture based amongst lyrical poets producing musical compositions generally related to Digital-to-Analog conversion (some call this Emceeing or DJ’ing instruments and synthesizers into one common, compositive art). Hip-Hop is the act of contorting your body based on your emotion to the music, whether it be a mix of Samba, Contemporary Jazz Stepping, Rumba, Breakdancing, Waltz-Tap, Liquid-Pop, or Solo-Teknicks. Hip-Hop is the act of creating art in rural, urban and educational settings with paint, spray paint, pencils. pens, dirt, mud, pastels, or even glitter to form calligraphic text or even abstract art. Hip-Hop is the style of clothing you choose to express who you are to others. Hip-Hop is LIFE AT ALL TIMES.


Now, some may see contradiction, but without every detail as one whole, the picture is incomplete.

          A wise female once stated, “We started a Hip-Hop dance Club because we felt it was important to bring cuture to our area.” Little did she know that, 2 years later, her aspirations to create a small dance organization would turn into a community over 200 strong between Marysville, Lake Stevens, Everett and Tulalip. This club brought a trademark to be reckoned with in the big city of Seattle. Crews were beginning to battle and before you knew it, the NorthWest B-Boy website was performing demonstrations at local schools and educating elementry students about the history and culture of breakdancing, dancing and hip-hop Image.


Many say; we have a diverse community in our school; but how many have a community that is diverse? A diverse community could be a variety, but a community that’s divers entails that, most of the students partake in various activities.



With leaders like this hosting events like: Image


We are clearly able to say; we owe a lot of respect to these students making postivie choices.



Here, lets take a deeper look into what this really means.

A highschool student; a college student and dropouts from both age brackets are all taking summer off. The biggest parties of the year are coming up. Their parents are out of town and 30 people have agreed to throw a monsterous party.


From a parents point of view; would you rather :

A: Let them go to a party without any exposure to learning how to dance; to get overly wasted, potentially poisoned by excessive alcohol consumption and arrested for substance intoxication?

B: Let them learn how to handle themselves at said party, while looking out for friends and dancing the night away, having a good time and youthful life?

C: Let them miss out on their youth because of lacking trust and failure to expose such “Above The Influence” entertainments, such as dance?

With these three scenarios, it’s hard to choose because if you fail to allow experience to teach them about fun, they may rebel. If you fail to show them dance, they may never understand the culture and may end up in the wrong crowd posing like the previously listed. If you fail to show them about how dance is good for their social ability, they may never respect the culture it has behind it.

With all things considered, when LS Hip-Hop  started in 2005 with 3 homeboys at an elementary school and a dedicated, highly acclaimed senior to make it socially acceptable, the odds that it would be a relevent portion of 360 in 2012(10th Annual, first Decade), the biggest Breakdancing event in the Northern-West Evergreen, were most certainly uncharted expectations.


With a life to live, the only thing a dancer must do to dance with life is-dance.
