People have passions. People nurture dreams. People need fame, money, glory, and respect. While most walk the conventional path to touch their dreams, some opt for a rather passionate way to get it. The most common passion among the younger blood is music, and the easiest and most feasible way to live the dream is to form a band.
There are over millions of local music bands all around, who sweat it out to make a name in the real world. Although, most of these bands are good and talented, only a few survive the not-so-merry journey to glory.
A band is never an individual. In a band, it is important for its members to have similar musical influences. This brings and builds a stronger sense of unity among the members, which eventually reflects in their music. Different music bands play different genres and their music sense ranges from super-sweet melodies to dark-gory riffs. These bands should learn and understand the importance of targeting their audience. Many good bands have failed because of improper market selection and many decent bands have shot to glory by a proper audience analysis.
The younger bands should always stay connected with the local audiences by constantly playing at gigs and competitions. Irrespective of the crowd, every stage performance, boosts and brings invaluable experiences. It is also important to stay true to your music and the only key to it is regular and sincere ‘jamming’.
The critical part is to keep the band together in the tougher times. When everything is sailing smooth, everyone is all happy, high and helpful, but the good times can not last forever. Difficult times often tear apart these fighting-for-fame bands. The road to rock-stardom involves high investment of time, money and physical power. Many a times these struggling musicians feel the pinch of surviving in the social world and tend to freak out and quit the scene.
It is also important to realize that serious band issues are never to be discussed with non-members or groupies. This always, plants ands grows distrust among the band members. Many bands have fallen out because of such conspiracies and insecurities.
In the end, it is essential to understand that the need of any music band is talent. Forming a band with your close friends is always a jolly option, but only if you are looking for fun. Today, to make it big and to nail it at big concerts you need to give it all in this belligerent music scene. One should trust and respect each band member and always believe that, true talent and sincere efforts never go unmarked.
