Playing live for the first time.

In about a week and a half I'll be playing live with my band for the first time.  We're a folky acousticy kind of band and we'll be playing at a local pub.  We've got all the live musical gear we need, monitors, PA, etc, but I'm pretty nervous.  I keep thinking I'm going to mess up and ruin it for everyone else. Can any performers out there give me any tips on how to avoid nerves?

  2. i used to play the bass in a SKA band like 5 years ago. the first time we played live i was pretty scared, there were like 300 people in there but after the first song everyone was dancing and the anxiety went away. hahaha good times tho :)

  3. Just go with the flow and you'll be ok. It's normal to be nervous.

  4. Don't worry, listen to that song Don't Worry by Bob Marley. Good luck!

  6. I have no tips, you will be fine. Just use your nerves to get you pumped up to melt some faces with your cool tunes dude. You rock.
