With a tour coming up the word that most musicians hate tears it’s ugly head… REHEARSAL! This inevitably means playing in a room too small for a band to be in, at an unsuitably loud volume, until you can take no more. BUT! Much in the same way studying for exams makes you feel more confident on the day, rehearsal is key for leveling first night nerves in a tour!

Here’s Mark our bass player learning a new song for this tour.

It also means you get to make sure all your gear is functioning properly

I’m trying out a few new pedals today. So much as we all hate it … rehearsal is something that we all as musicians need to do. Especially when you charge people to see your act.
