Over the last twenty five years I have promoted, played at and done PA for a lot of gigs. During those 25 years I’ve seen live acts make just about every mistake it’s possible to make. Inspired by the fact that tonight’s band were good and did things right, I thought I’d share with you some of the dos and donts.
