Each venue and stage is different..and so as an artist you have to not only soundcheck but get the vibe and feel of the stage and venue. This is from Saturday night in Waukegan IL at the Genesee Theater on the bill with Lisa Lisa and Debbie Gibson.
You can’t just go through the motions and life even in rehearsal..be in the mindset of being the best. Often, especially for up and comers, how you practice is how you perform.
