One thing that is essential in addition to everyting else is the development of a live show. The live show is not only where musicians make their money, but also the most valuable asset of a band to make and engage fans and to turn them into superfans (who will buy from you).

Bands who deliver a great live show rock the house.

Bands that gain fans fast and make a good living even without a record label have one thing in common: a killer live show.

Muscles for your stage performance.

Schwarzenegger is undoubtetly (if you like him or not) the most successful and popular bodybuilder of all times. In one of his books he mentions something he did on stage while performing in front of juries and which, in his eyes, made him stand out from his competitors.

It seems to be a little thing, but it made a big difference.

Watching his fellow competitors, he noticed that they all made the same mistake. He noticed that when they were not in the spotlight, they lost their attitude and relaxed facial expression. The most important thing (in all professions) is to make what you do look easy. It’s not easy to squeeze every fiber of your muscles and still keep a smile on your face. When his competitors performed in the background (or while entering the stage) they didn’t care about making it look easy because they thought they’re off the spotlight, out of sight out of mind (of the jury).

Big mistake.

Schwarzenegger also noticed that the jury checked out all competitors all the time, even when they were not currently in the spotlight.

So what did he do?

He made it a rule to always look comfortable, make it look easy, and sport a relaxed face and smile the entire time he is on stage and visible to the jury. He says that this was one of the advantages he had when competing and that for this reason juries, audiences and the press always thought of him as a nice relaxed dude even under intense circumstances.

Next time you go out on stage try to look the part from the first second to the last of your entire show. Don’t miss a beat in performance and attitude, because the audience will catch you if you do and they will judge you by it.

A show is a show for a reason. No one wants to see everyday (or worse) faces on stage.

Give them what they came for. They will love you for it (though they might not even notice it).
