Log 6 : Quick tip for a road with a band

If you are on the road as a performer, you gatto take care of your health condition. That is a MUST. You're better to give your 100% every time you perform. Why?  Well, there are so many reasons that I have as my belief, but I share a few here with you:
  1. There always will be someone who have never seen you before and if you suck, that is for what they remember you for a long time. Most of the time that impression is permanent. They do not have to know and do not care if you were under the weather or whatever.
  2. If one got sick in a group, there is a possibility that other people get sick by being with him too. Then that is simply worse then only one of the member being sick.
  3. The worst case is a group has to stop or cancel shows because of your bad health condition.
 Personally, I believe that not getting sick is one of the least things to handle if you consider yourself as a professional in any of your desired field. One of the facts that, I think, separates between a pro and an other is producing what you have properly all the time. Not more or not less. Consistently produce what it need in that situation. In order to do that, you have to have a control on yourself first.

Last 3 days, I think I have been sick. I do not have any fever or cold, but my throat hearts and I cough really bad every minute. We had a show last night at Millhill Basement where we performed and had a great time about a month ago. We played as good as usual, but my part was not as tight as it was supposed to be. Seems like it is not a big deal at all, but that little detail make a huge difference. That is a fine line that I want always pass. And what worse than that was, I felt unusual tiredness or weight on my body after my performance so that I had to lay down on the couch with my wet clothes from my sweat for like 30 minutes.  The result was obvious. I was so dizzy and felt more sick. I felt so bad for that I could not talk to any of the people and bands after that happened to me.

So do not get sick on the road! is what I am trying to say in this blog.
