My band is doing our first club gig in a few weeks and I'm hoping to learn from other experienced players.

We've done parties, coffee houses etc and we are well-rehearsed and have our song list well organized to create mood, transitions, and breaks.

I'm hoping to get advice on things to make sure we do/don't do etc. Advice like "don't play drunk" or "play through mistakes" is not what I'm looking for. Instead, maybe a bit more of the meaty stuff.

I'm renting a soundboard and speakers and we will do a full rehearsal using the soundboard the night before the gig.

I appreciate any advice your would offer.

Thanks.
