Thanks for the suggestions Moonrider!!! I just got another cord for my in-ear monitors so I think I'm going to try that again at our next gig. I'm determined to get those going :D

Re: Gig Report - Life is Drama @ Tailgaters (Bollingbrook)

Not so much Katy Perry but try these out!! These are the "standards" every band should know. EVERY coverband in the Chicago area plays these songs (most have a female singer). Summer of '69 - Byran Adams Jennie 867-5309 - Tommy Tutone Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield All Summer Long - Kid Rock Raise...

Re: Gig Report - Life is Drama @ Tailgaters (Bollingbrook)

LOL!!! No, not trying to pick up Goth chicks!!! :) Do they like those?? I think here Fri nights are a little lighter than Sat nights at Tailgaters b/c everyone is getting off work. They've been around a LONG TIME so they know thier crowds. You know you're an Upper Tier band when you're headlining a ...

Re: Gig Report - Life is Drama's Double Header Weekend

Thanks Laz!!! Yes, its been UNBELIEVABLE!!! The band has never seen this type of success before so I think it has been due to playing new material (more popular songs) & Jason our bass player is a real extrovert!!! He totally gets the crowd going and gets me to go out into the crowd so I'm starting ...
