What do you wear at gigs?

Problems, how to get them, favorite songs to play, groupies, funky bar owners, etc. NO names of clubs, please.

Dan's pic reminds me of the scene in the Blues Brothers.... "Are you men police..." "No ma'am, were musicians"!

Nice promo,601! You look dooo-o-d! I'd have to wear even nicer clothes than that (by a long shot) to look half that good.

You know what I've been wearing at gigs lately ??

One of my many White Sox Jerseys, a matching White Sox Cap,
Blue Jeans or Shorts and White Reeboks.

I really don't give a flying crap about any kind of "look".
It's the Music that matters.
Doesn't matter what you look like, if you can't cut it Musically, you won't be employed for long.

I'm still playing 2-4 gigs a week and making damn good money.

The way I see it is, as long as you're clean, smell good and everything matches, who gives a frig ??

I still throw on a Dress shirt every now & then but, usually I'm
wearing something Sports related.

I've developed enough of a following that everyone knows I'm a Sports fanatic and it is definitely part of my "Persona".

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Apr-25-06 AT 00:24 AM (EST)]Grady, I was in an outfit called the "Hired Guns Blues Band". Tim Pikunas - the other guitarist - was a dedicated Phillies fan.

Through the season, he wore a Phils uniform at shows. He had a Bubblegum Pink "The Strat" that he played at the time - it was cool, he was dressed as a Baseball card.

The Audiences loved it, he was having a blast - we all were, those were pretty good days.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Apr-25-06 AT 06:53 AM (EST)]Grady don't be so defensive brother,now I would look funny in a baseball uniform,and I don't wear caps cuz muh head is fat!!but for you and it fits your persona man dats fine!!Thats all we are sayin,is that you need a style what ever that is, But I have seen guys that get up it front of people with dirty smelly street cloths on! no style no persona,no nothing, thats what iam against,what ever your style is, it should reflect who you are,it doesent have ta be a suit and tie, But you need ta stand out in a croud, I think what you described is jus fine it reflects you!! dats great!!I think this is 1 of the most difficult issues and the easiest to achive,when you talk about dressing for gigs everyone thinks of a suit and starts screaming about it!! But it is not about a suit it is about image,when your on that stage your sound a visual is what projects and brings interest, so get the suit thing outta yo heads and think image what do you what to project!!

>Grady don't be so defensive brother,

Whoa !!!!

Hold on there Brother !!!

I did not mean any offense toward anyone.

If you feel like I was aiming something toward you, I apologize.

Hell, I didn't even read your posts or look at your Pics until after I posted my reply.
I was just picking up where I'd left off way back early in this thread.

Like I said, I apologize.
Please don't think I was aiming anyhing at you or anyone else.
