this is just a simple question we wanna know because we are thinking of running a gig that has a ska band, an alt-rock band and a pop-rock band... any thoughts would be welcome!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

not a bad thought. doesnt happen much. I think it would work ok. Advertise it well ensuring people know what they're in for is important</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Personally I like the nite to be similar style bands...
It makes for a better night as you know what type of band is coming up next.
An acoustic-pop band followed by a Punk band followed by a Nu-metal band does not help keeping the people in the room.
Networking similar bands makes for a better nite.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

3 or 4 bands playing the same style of music in one night gets really boring, really quickly. Variety is the spice of life! Obviously, extremely different genres don't work together, but there are many similarities between alot of bands other than just 'musical genre'.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Our band, Emerald Sea (www.emerealdsea.com.au) is kinda Jeff Buckley type mellow rock. As you would all be well aware, there are not too many acts around doing this sorta style, so when it comes to a night of bands, we don't have a lot of option but to play mixed in with everyone else. I ACTUALLY LOVE IT!!! We are are so differnet from the acts before us, that we are automatically noticed, and people tend to pay attention. THis seems to generate more response per number of people in the audience. Kinda like a breath of fresh air,.. in a way. I am not saying that the full rockin punk band would get the same joy at a cabaret bar,.... but you know what I'm sayin. I used to always cringe at the idea that we were sharing nights with bands that were SO different,.... now I'm used to it, and it helps us stand out. Standing out is probably the biggest hurdle to becoming known. In the end,.. it's all rock and roll anyway!!

You will run the risk of people leaving after their preferred musical style ends their set. But, I'm personally all for trying something different. Go for it! If all the acts are quality then you might just be on a winner.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
