Any ideas? Any advice is appreciated

don't overscoop your mids

and don't get into volume oneupmanship

EDIT: TRUST THE SOUNDMAN AND BE NICE TO HIM

practice your set alot

and make sure your to keep all ur volumes about the same cause it sucks to have one guy louder than another
Frontbassman sucks in the nicest way possible

the increased volume will add a fair amount of gain

and too much will make your sound over saturated and muddy

At practices, work on your showmanship. Practice moving around like you're on stage, make sure you can play without looking at your hands, practice like it's actually the gig.

When you're on stage, don't get overly worked up and worried. Just trust yourself and you'll do fine. I was so nervous before my first gig because it was a showcase show at the famous Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ and it was my first time playing with this band. First song I was pretty scared, but then I got into it and trusted what I was doing and it turned out great.

also stand in the positions you would take at a gig so you don't get overly dependent on seeing what everyone else is doing

Yeah no doubt thats what we're gonna work on as well. It's mainly our first gig together as a band but we all have some kind of experience gigging. At any rate, thanks for the advice everyone! its much appreciated.
