FOREAL PERFORMANCE COACHING TIPS.

#1 OPEN YOUR EYES.

Years back, early 1970s, in the CLICK WINE BAR, Surry Hills, Sydney, Izzy was performing at eyeball level with his audience and perfecting the zoned out, eyes closed technique of the terminally cool when an audience member approached and said: OPEN YOUR EYES. Since then Izzy has made it a policy to OPEN HIS EYES and engage with the Audience.

#2 ONSTAGE IS SACRED

The PERFORMANCE AREA IS SACRED. No matter what is going on between fellow performers – offstage – that must not intrude upon the performance platform. (Check out the history of Soul Music Performers, Sam and Dave.)

#3

DON’T REHEARSE WHEN YOUR’E STONED.

DON’T REHEARSE when you’re stoned otherwise you will need to be stoned when you perform to remember what you’ve rehearsed. This places unwanted stress on your performance budget.

#4 HAVE A BLUEPRINT.

The difference in levels of professionalism are to do with having a performance blueprint to work from before you go on stage. Sometimes the most marvellous spontaneity can spring from a well-planned beginning. (No audience member enjoys listening to somebody tuning their guitar all night.)

#5 MUSICIANSHIP

You can have all the prowess  in the world, but in an entertainment context its worthless without energy.

#6 FILL THE ROOM.

Whether your entertainment space is intimate or large or anything in between, your level of presentation need to be appropriate. In a huge auditorium, aim at the Punter in the back corner. This Rule applies also in the smallest venue. This may mean a shout in a big room and a whisper in a small room. You need to learn what and when.

#7 TAKE CARE OF THE SPACES BETWEEN THE SONGS.

Don’t give away the next song by practising it in front of your audience before you start playing it. Don’t fiddle with your instrument trying to get a sound. Don’t play bits and pieces that have nothing to do with your performance. The show is still going on even when you’re not playing a song. Fill the spaces between with appropriate content

#8

TALK TO YOUR AUDIENCE.

Tell stories. Let them know about your music. Make them laugh OR make them cry but don’t let them see that you are doing so. MEAN IT ! Your audience needs to go home feeling as remembered as you would like to be.
