I'm having a small issue with my band, and it may sound lame or superficial or whatever, but I dont like how my band mates dress... I want us to portray the image of a badass punk/hard rock band. I personally dress like a rockstar normally, ya know leather jacket, black jeans, band tees. Thats just what I like and how I am. These guys wear wrangler blue jeans, adidas long sleeve shirts, gym shorts.... And they're great musicians, but how do I suggest that they change their look a little bit, at least for band functions, without coming off as a gay douche or something like that? I feel weird saying "dude, I dont like how you dress cuz it doesnt look like we should be a rock band, change it."

Thanks

I totally hear you on that man. I'm not talking everyday attire, but at least for gigs, you have to look the part too. OK, you don't HAVE to, but people want to think you're a rockstar and they care about the image. Just casually bring it up and expect them to say FU...That's the response I got and the moment I realized they weren't serious about the band haha

Just tell them that live shows are a visual AND audio experience, if the crowd wanted JUST audio they'd listen online. You can play the part, now you've got to look the part.

But for the love of God don't all wear the same thing at every gig.

It shouldn't matter but it often does.

Luckily being in a Grunge/Alt Rock band it doesn't matter for us as the whole point of it is just to not worry about it and where what you want but for other genres it is different. There is an expected look and uniform to wear.

Just bring it up with them next practice, I mean theres no need to worry about what they wear at rehearsals but for the live performances see what they say.

This. You should definitely try to look nice though. Don't dress like a you can't afford more than one pair of clothes (unless you really can't), because that's not good. Beyond that, as long as you have a strong stage presence, it really doesn't matter what you wear.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

I'm all for making a band image where all the members have a unified dress code. However if your issue is that you just don't like how they dress, then you are just being a douche.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

Metalheads/metal bands always seem like they make the most effort to dress up/care the most about how they look. Except like hipster-y sorts of bands. Maybe it's just my area.

you can do what we do and choose a few different things that you only wear on stage, that you would wear normally... I don't see whats wrong with blue jeans instead of black ones but whatever.

I know that I have Tshirst that I only wear for gigs.... they are pretty much void of all name brands and other bands just a generic shirt with like a skull or a raven or somethin like that. but for a punk/ hard rock it doesn't really matteras long as you act like you don't care about your appearence on stage....

well tbh its good to just express youself as you...

the whole leather jacket sort of stuff is kind of dumb. i see people who wear the leathe rjackets and the tight pants and the "rock star" clothes and they look like douches.

thats why then grunge came and it was like t-shirt and jeans and your ok. which is what i like and its how i dress.

I want us to portray the image of a badass punk/hard rock band. l


Personally, it astounds me that "punk" is identified by how people dress and do their. there is nothing more counter expressive than showing how much you DON'T CARE and Do NOT Conform, then sewing on patches and spending an hour getting your mohawk to stand up straight. I think I officially stopped being "punk" the day I started honestly not caring about my clothes and look.

Sooo, now i play in a ThrashPunkHardcoreMetalGrungeProgressiveBand and we get classified as all sorts of stuff, but people love us, we get to travel and we are regionally successful.


***And my fav part of every show is when we are done and someone says "dude, looking at you before the show, I would never have believed that the same guy was playing that guitar." This is usually started off with "No Offence But..."

I don't find it offensive, it just bothers me that we live in a world of sh*tty guitar players with wild hair, ripped jeans and eye liners, while my clean new Chuck Taylors, stripped button down and glasses prematurely visually disqualify me from being a great guitar player

So, if you really think that telling your friends how to dress is going to get your band any further than the school auditorium and the local VFW, then have fun making new, little minded, mailable friends.


Quote by Punkrokkboi
I'm having a small issue with my band

Yes, it is small and if it's an issue, think of this: Rock Star is an attitude and a mentality that you can convey when you walk around stage and talk to people before and after your set. If you deliberately walk around a show like you want people to judge you based on how you look, you may also turn off people of stronger sensibility, maybe even those with more to offer you.

YOu do generally make a bigger impact if you all follow a general theme.

As you want the image to be punk/hard rock leather and studs is a must.
It's stupid and naive for anyone to say "it's not about the looks it's about the music", which is clealy not the case. Noone would take a jazz band seriously if they had t-shirts and checkered shorts on, noone'd take a metal band seriously if they had tuxedos on, etc.

You have to tell them that you need to be recognisable as a band when you're on stage.
My band recently talked about this, and while matching outfits is lame, you need to decide on a style. Even if it's just "We're all gonna wear t-shirts and jeans" or "We're gonna all dress cas/formal" a few days before. It shows that you're a band.

Hell even if it is just wearing your band's t-shirt and jeans, it stilll shows people you're a band.

I mean, The Clash got away with it (well, Mick Jones was always in something like a Zoot Suit or hawaiian shirt where Joe, Paul and Topper looked the part ) but I'm assuming you guys are establishing a name for yourselves around your hometown to start.
So you can't really just look like anyone from the crowd, you need to make sure you're synchronised as a band in everything!

the irony is that acutally caring about looking punk is totally against punk...

punk=couldnt give a damn about such shallow things

the people who try to look punk just look like idiots. they seem to try to hard

well obviously you dont go in something totally inappropriatebut just going in normal clothes, not really caring about looking the part is in itself punk

I don't really think caring about appearance is against the punk ideal. Think about the Misfits. They had a theme, and they sure as **** followed it.

You don't want to look like you're trying to hard, but at the same time, you want to look like you belong on stage as a band, not just some random schmucks who just stumbled up there. Every band that really made it has an appearance and, more importantly, attitude that suggests that they are a serious band.

yeah but its not the late 70s anymore where is was seen as rebellion to have a mohawk and stuff

now its like...wow that guy is trying to be 70s punk...

while i dont mean you cant have a mohawk or wear a leathe rjacket dont try to be punk just for the sake of being punk. be yourself, even on stage...

You have to look the part. Like Punk_ninja said; anyone who says "it's not about the looks it's about the music" is fooling themselves. Think about it this way, you don't go to a show to listen to a band, you go to a show to see a band.

So, yes, you band should dress up or something, they should look better than the audience. Even if it's just Jeans and a T-shirt that has your bands name spray-painted on it. Also, Black Leather Jackets work in any rock genre, especially punk.

Except on world-famous rock/metal bands.

Funny how that works, isn't it? How, if you're famous, you can get away with wearing far more ridiculous stuff...because the image and the reality match up a lot better.

The "leather jacket, jeans, studs, outrageous hair" thing is how rock stars dress, yes.
You are not a rock star.

You are a musician in a small-town band which struggles to get more than a few dozen people at a show. (Probably. This is the UG average). Basically, when you dress like that, you're pretending to be far more important than you actually are.

This goes for every genre, I suppose - what you wear on stage shows what you think the band should look like. So if you're all going to wear utterly different styles...someone in a tuxedo, someone in ripped jeans, someone who's more sunglasses than man...you're not really projecting anything as a group. Similarly, if you all turn up in leather and chains, you're saying 'WE THINK YOU SHOULD TAKE US REALLY, REALLY SERIOUSLY, LOOK HOW ANGRY WE ARE'.

exaclty

imagine if rhcp went out naked on their first gig...they would have been booed off

instead they attracted a crowd who were impressed with their stage antics...and then came out with nothing but a sock!!!

Damascus, just checked that band out, live they seem to dress a bit smarter than that, but still, we aren't talking about famous bands here!
Pat Metheny gets away with wearing that stripey jumper and running shoes every gig he does, but any small local band without a following wouldn't be taken seriously if they were in casual clothes! (generally that is!)

HalfDose, you're kidding me surely?
How can you not agree that a band needs to look in synch with eachother? Especially when at a local level.
Look at almost any big band, they'll have a look to them, be it one which is fitting to their style of music, or one which they have been sporting for years or something.
If you all look like you're on the same page you're going to look more professional.
While bands can get away with wearing whatever, it can end up looking horrible.

Also, just stick your clothes in the wash.

Like I said in my first post, it's stupid to have matching outfits.
But following a similar style is a good idea.

Like, my band's "style" is pretty much a "distressed formal" kinda thing, like, we'll be in formal clothes but the ties'll be loose, the sleeves'll be rolled etc etc, that's pretty much our theme and within that we can all wear what we like.
So while I may go for a relatively open black shirt with no tie, black trousers and smart trainers, my bassist might go white shirt, loose tie, dark jeans and shoes where the drummer might have a loose bow tie and braces, etc etc.

There's still a lot of scope to have originality if you have a band theme, but if you have no idea of the band's look at all you can end up with some (hoping I don't sound camp here ) fasion disasters.

Dressing alike or to a "style" is called a gimmick. For me, gimmicks take a lot away from the experience of liking a band. With the single exception of GWAR, it is just a cry for attention form shallow people.

I go to see a band live to hear the true sound of their music. There have been several bands who I've liked on disc, then shown up to see and lost interest in because they found it necessary to supplement their quality music with Hot Topic brand parlor tricks.

I agree about punk, you shouldn't "try" to look punk. But I can kind of see where the OP is coming from. Let's face it, if you went to a show and saw a band (presumably of younger kids) wearing gym shorts and Adidas athletics tee's, you're not going to take them seriously. It looks like a bunch of kids whose mommy's bought them their clothes and their instruments and they decided to start a band. It just looks bad.

There doesn't need to be a dress code. You don't have to all be wearing leather jackets and tight ripped Levi's. That would also look bad. Just make a few basic rules. First of all, no gym shorts. At LEAST wear some kind of jeans. Or cargo shorts or something. Just no gym shorts. Actually, athletic clothes in general look bad. Unless you guys decide on some kind of image where you all want to look like Richard Simmons on stage. That might actually be pretty funny. But that's because your exaggerating it on purpose.

Flannel shirts are good, jeans are good, band t's are good, plain T's are good, v-neck's are good, cargo shorts are good, etc. This is not making them CHANGE their "image" or style. I'm sure they all have at least 1 or 2 of those items in their closet. Just tell them on gig day to bring them out and wear them. Leave the gym shorts for when you're going to the gym.

Sorry...but that's not what a gimmick is.

A gimmick is something which distracts from the music in order to make poeple like the band.
Akin to getting two girls on stage to kiss or something like that.
Dressing in a way which identifies you as a band is not a gimmick.

GWAR's stage appearance IS a gimmick as they wear ridiculous outfits and that's prety much their appeal.

But wearing clothes which make people see that you're a band is not a shallow cry for attention...

The vast majority of bands I really like can or could normally be photographed on the street in pretty much the same clothes they wore on stage. I don't want to be Motley Crew, I don't want to be the Insane Clown Posse and I sure as fu don't want to be Kiss.

I Just want us to look, like punk ninja said, like we're in sync as a band and not have me wearing what I wear and them looking completly different. Anyways, I talked to them and my bassist was actually think we should get more in sync as well. We're going to wear our favorite band shirts, and black hoodys and for me a denim jacket. That way, we wont look totally different and we all are dressed like we belong on stage and not in the crowd.

See, I think that when you go to a show, you should be watching people who look different and who dont look like everyone else. Its part of the show. It's audio as well as visual.

Sorry if I ended up coming across as some wanna-be punk kid. Punk is just a label anyways, I only use it to define what our band sounds like because I can't just say "It sounds like fast power chords, distorted guitars, angry vocals, ect ect".
