I'm crapping myself!

I can relate to being nervous, although not in the same setting.

PLaying with various amateur bands over the years, I used to get nervous. I got a few funny looks when spotted in a back corridor in some venue jumping up and down, stretching and doing press-ups!

Better than that, the best piece of advice I ever stumbled across for stage-fright was set the kit up, and then as the punters arrive, have a pint (if not driving) and mingle. By chatting to people, you'll soon realise that they're there for a good night out, a laugh, to enjoy themselves - not to critique every move you make. I'm sure that some of this could apply to you but if you end up legless, or falling down a hole while out running, I'm not to blame!

PS Good luck and enjoy. It's what you do, after all.

Well, how did it go?

Were you pumped full of adrenalin, was it all over in a flash (pardon the pun)?

Did you manage to control your nerves and retain the feeling of being in charge of the situation?

Did you just relax and it all went like a dream?

Wow, this is a cliffhanger - just picked up on this thread and read it through - I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing how it went.

Someone check he's not crying silently and rocking back and forth in a dark corner somewhere?...
