15. Not showing your passion as you perform! If you don’t show your love for your original songs nobody else will either
16. Not keeping the band in balance…band members need to connect with each other through their entire performance
17. Not opening your eyes and looking out the the audience…It is okay to get emotional when performing, but if you look like you are asleep up there you will lose the audience and it will be hard to get them back!
18. Smile for the cameras! Find spots in your songs where you can smile out to the audience. It can completely change their focus on you.
19. Standing still! Take the boredom out of your performance and keep on MOVING! If you are frozen to the stage, you will look like a scared beginner up there. Even if you have an outstanding voice it will not be enough to get the audience tuned in.
20. Not changing the tempo of your performance. Songs that all sound the same and are slow moving will most definitely impact the audiences enthusiasm.
