Re: Gigs.....

We are working on a small east coast tour in late summer. Haven't toured since I was in my early 20's so I am pretty stoked about that. Although at our collective age and income I don't think we will...

Re: I took a hearing test...

When I separated from the military a couple of years ago I had to take a hearing test. I knew that I had tinnitus and hearing loss for years but I didn't realize how bad it was until the VA told me I...

Re: Is this "Unprofessional"

I don't know man. I have never played with brushes in my life. If a band told me to play with brushes I would laugh at them and tell them to come find me at the bar when the song was over. Sounds to...

Re: The sound guy

I will be honest how the drums sound is actually really low on my priority list for FOH sound. I am a member of a band, as such I want the band to sound as good as possible. What I really want is the...

Re: Warning, imminent British invasion of New Jersey & New Orleans!

Preservation hall has live music just about every night so I would go check that out. Other than that, as Doug said, there are bars with music all around the French quarter. One place had dueling...

Re: Preparing for an audition

Remember, you are also auditioning them. If a band had shown up at the time the audition was expected to start only to then try and get the sound right, that would have been a huge red flag to me....

Re: The worst gig of my life

I just have one request, please post the first time you put your foot down about using the backline and are told to get bent. As a guy who has done sound for numerous clubs and festivals I will tell...

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

Check out Lo-Pan. I have seen them live a hand full of times and this has been the stage set up every time! Standing by the stage, with the bass drum at chest level it hits hard!

Re: Very excited!!!

I played in Canada once. Can I use the title until you officially take it over?

Or maybe I will go with International Drumming Sensation! Has a nice ring to it.

Re: Other songs that sound like other songs

Last dance with Mary Jane/Dani California is the first one that comes to mind.

Re: Just got home from a gig and I'm just so bummed

If you are that worried about getting the hoop to match exactly I would recommend not taking that kit out of the house. Get a gigging kit that can take the abuse and wont break the bank if it gets...

Re: How to politely and professionally quit

My only advice is to do it face to face. Don't quit via text or email, stand up look them in the eye and tell them your done. I am pretty sure every musician over the age of about 16 has been in...

Re: Do you plan your fills?

When writing original music do all of your experimenting during the compositional phase of writing. If you do the same fill every time while writing the song your band mates will expect that fill...

Re: Is live music dead?

I think the number of venues may be far less than they were when I started gigging 10-15 years ago, but the crowds are actually better. In my town there is a great live music venue that has local and...

Re: Double bill - a first for me - what could possibly go wrong?

I have actually done this before and trust me, with the exception of those people there to watch you, nobody will even notice. The one time I played a double bill it was with a house kit so I didn't...

Re: Rock albums with modern production and a great vintage drum sound

Listen to Bullhead by the Melvins.

It pretty much has to be music with some space in it. Anything with blast beats or double bass need to be more accurate and tend to have a more processed,...

Re: How many times have you been asked...

I loved when we would play corporate gigs or parties and some drunk guy would want to play. Gave me a chance to get a beer and take a break. I would usually let them go for a few songs. The crowd...

Re: Alan Dawson: How Do You Sound? vs How Do You Look?

I am absolutely shocked to hear a professional drummer say that the playing on a record is a better measure of a drummer than their live performance. I could absolutely care less what a drummer can...

Re: Anika Nilles

I am surprised every time I see one of her videos at how, well, old her music sounds. She is a girl in, I will assume, her early 20's yet she writes and plays music that sounds like it was written by...

Re: Going to shows of a band you got rejected from a good idea?

I am going to assume that you like, and obviously know, their music. With that in mind go check out the show. There might be other bands on the bill that you can network with as well. I go to a ton...

Re: A few recording questions

I will definitely disagree with you. There are people who can get professional sounds out of two cans and a string, these kids are not them. My advice is not to worry so much about the mechanics of...

Dude, it doesn't have to be perfect. If you are expecting a professional sound out of this you are going to be disappointed. Let the toms ring, let the instruments bleed over into each other, make...
