I just got home from the gig. Thank you very much for taking the time to do an unscheduled consultation with me today. I did exactly what you said, warming up very lightly, focusing on the brightness of the “AH” sound about 30 to 45 minutes just before arriving at the venue. We arranged our set starting with easier, less “belty” tunes, progressing into heavier and heavier songs. By the end of the fourth song, I was almost 100% and stayed there the whole set. We did well enough to get paid and get invited back to a New Year’s show. The whole band was very pleased, and I “owe you one”!
