It's all in the time you put into you music ! playing out without practice shows!
No matter what the style of music you play, putting the work into it and getting heard is important. Jamming is just that. Club owners will swindle you if you don't have it together. Be the best you can be, love what you do and have fun. Bands fall apart if your heading in different directions, mine did and now I play when I can. fFan base is important ,listen to other bands see what they do ,fan them keep the music alive!
