Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! As you read this, I’m winging my way to The Land of Enchantment (that would be New Mexico) for a few days of performing, sightseeing, and catching up with friends. but I wouldn’t neglect your tip.

Bring your music to a gig in multiple formats.

Now, a good producer should have had you submit your music ahead of time and everything will be all set when you arrive for the show, but stuff happens*…

Bring your music on a flash drive, so it can be imported again, if necessary. Also, bring your music on your phone. You’re going to want to listen to it on your headphones backstage anyway. In a pinch, your device can be used for playback.

And of course, if you come so prepared, none of your careful created backups will be needed. Such is the way of things.

*At our New Year’s Eve show, Betty’s song, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”, started only playing one channel. As half the lyrics were inaudible, this made for a problematic performance. Fortunately, it was re-imported and played the next night without mishap.

M2Like this tip? There are lots more in Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Better Burlesque.
