    Hey guys/gals

    I'm on the precipice of landing my first gig! I have currently started pre-planning it (i know this is not the way to go, but it is just a basis of what i intend to play)

    I have absolutely no clue where to start other than starting slow, bringing it up to a peak, and then bringing it back down again

    Do any of you have any methods you use that could help me?

    Thanks in advance

    all depends on the crowd.

    you can only pre plan so much but if a crowd is not feeling it then you have to keep switching it up till you keep them on the dance floor

    Get your tracks together, set a mood with stuff so people can come in and talk and relax, see their friends. Then slowly build it up. After a certain point, usually after the girls have started to dance and try to convince the guys to dance with them, hit them with some REALLY poppy and dancy and go from there.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.
