The Art of the Live Show

Feb 27, 2014

We’re thrilled to have Huey Lewis and The News back at the tent after 4 years. They’re well known for their live show. One of the highlights is their a cappella rendition of early rock n’ roll classics such as “It’s Alright”, “Little Bitty Pretty One” and “Sixty Minute Man”.

Crackerjack hooks and memorable melodies aren’t enough. The best performers take it a step further and develop a memorable experience for their audiences. Music is a business like any other, professionalism is mandatory to a long standing career.

Does this sound familiar? You’re at a club listening to a band. The first song rocked and the audience is having a great time. Then the music dies. The audience shuffles their feet and look at each other. The people down front can hear the singer asking the guitarist what’s next.

Now think about those artists who sell out shows and have loyal followings. What’s the difference? It’s the stage show and professionalism. In these days of streaming music, downloads and mp3s, it’s the live show will create a loyal audience. A wise man once said “An amateur practices until he gets it right, a professional practices until he never gets it wrong.” To create a loyal audience takes more than a great voice, it also requires professionalism. A true professional can read the audience and know what is called for.

Huey Lewis and The News are among those rare performers that keep audiences coming back for more.
