Episode 75: One Night Only

“Whether Its 300 people, 3000 or 13,000 it has to feel like a celebration and you have to connect….I treat it like whether you are at the back or whether you are at the front, this is a night where something’s going to happen that can only happen there.”

-Hugh Jackman on TODAY, 11/29/2018

Every show is unique. Your audience wants to experience something that is ‘one night only.’ They want to see you perform something special just for them and you can make them feel that. It's all in how well you connect with them. The easiest way to make a connection is to pretend like you are just hanging out with your closest friends, even if it is dozens or hundreds of them. You are there doing your thing with your friends. Thinking that way will keep you relaxed and more importantly, authentic. It is that cool confidence that will draw the audience to you and make the performance feel special. When you do this repeatedly, every single audience will feel like they got a unique show and no one else will see the same one.

Episode 74: Give Fear the Middle Finger

Fear sucks the life out of you. Performers CANNOT thrive when fear is looming over us.

How can you stomp out fear?

First you need to recognize what type of fear you're facing. In this episode we cover the 3 most common types of fear that performers may face during their career. Attention, Judgement, and Success. When a performer is afraid of attention it is often called stage fright. Getting in front of people can be very scary for some people. The key here is getting your confidence up. When someone is afraid of judgement, they are held back because of what they THINK other people are thinking. Honestly - it doesn't matter what people think. Get on stage and do your thing. You audience will find you. The biggest fear for any one, performer or not, is the fear of success. Its natural for human being to keep to their comfort zone. But we cannot find success in our comfort zone. We have to take on new risks, face disappointments, put in more hard work, and live the dream we see for ourselves.

Episode 73: How to Promote Your Show

Once you have the gig, how do you get people there?

It is a common misconception that the venue is responsible for providing the audience. While in some cases they may, like at restaurants, but most of the time you will need to do some promoting yourself.

The best way?

Like everything else in life, social media ranks highest for successful promoting and there are SO many different ways to promote yourself, before, during and after a gig. Something simple like creating an event and actively posting in it. Each time you are booked you have an opportunity to show the venue that you are a good investment. People that come for you spend money at the venue...the more people the go, the more money is spent, the better of an investment you are and the more likely it is they have you back.
