Blonde Wisdom #2

Customer service is paramount, always. In the music business, if you are a cover band, there is an even higher standard for it. Performing for the client and not for yourself can be a struggle for some musicians. Everyone has their favorite songs by their favorite artists but if you want to be a successful cover band you must appeal to the masses by choosing the correct songs. It's your job to cover other people's music, hence "cover" band. You've made a choice to perform the music of others so make it the very best imitation of their music that you possibly can. Remember, imitation is the highest form of flattery. Take a great song and make it your own, put your own spin on it (to set you apart from other bands), or perform it exactly like the original. There isn't a right or wrong way of covering a song as long as you are believing it and giving it your all. One of the biggest mistakes some cover bands make, is deciding that they're going to play whatever they want regardless of how it will be received. This approach only works if you're ok playing to nobody in your basement or garage and not being booked (or rebooked) by clubs and venues. Be relevant and know your audience. If you are going to play covers then make sure they are songs that people know and love. Being self indulgent in this scenario can be a recipe for disaster. The most successful cover bands utilize their gifts and talents to make others happy. #blondewisdom #two #numbertwo
