It helps draw attention but you don't have to

Dear God, it's a subforum of this one... BANDLEADING FORUM.

TS: Start a gig however you like, but the song needs to draw your audience in.

To be honest I would reccomend starting with a fast song, you will knock people in the face and they will be forced to pay attention

I respond with a series of questions:
1. What style of music do you and your band play?
2. What kind of music is expected at the gig?
3. Are you performing for entertainment or playing music to which people will dance?
4. What else do you plan to play?
5. How do you define "fast"?
6. How do you define an "upbeat song"?
7. Will anyone be performing before or after you?
8. Who will be in the audience?

Songs like The Trooper, Tie Your Mother Down, Wickerman and Paranoid are good openers but usally The Trooper and Paranoid are over played especially Paranoid.

Indeed, it would help if you could answer these
