  • Planning for "impromptu" song breakdowns...

    Sometimes you want to talk to the audience - maybe do a social, thank the venue, or wish someone a happy birthday - without stopping the music. What's a good process for planning these out? Anyone have good video examples that we can take a look at?

    Thanks!

    I dont have a video on hand but its somthing we do all the time on a regular basis.  Since your front person doesnt play  ,, she gives the signal ,,,, Just stay in the chord progression of the verse ,have the rhythm player  bring down the volume through dynamics the band follows him down,, stay in the verse till the talking is done then she give the signal. It could be somthing as simple as lowering the mike or backing away. and as the verse end, she comes back to the mic,,  go into the chorus just like a lot of songs do with the lead.  .  Our front man plays acoustic so anytime you hear him bring the dynamics down we follow him down in volume.  ,, we know he is going into the talk routine.  We know that he is going to come back in on the chorus.
