Don't try too hard.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Tell them about that one time that you tried too hard and nobody cared.

Make drummer jokes, and then run over to your now empty drumset, and play a rimshot.

Piano dick had some good parts, but should have said "As the business man slowly gets boned", would have accented the whole dick feeling of the album

I once introduced a classical ensemble piece with "This is a little song by Cannibal Corp-I mean...this is *song title*"

If it's originals, talk about the song. If it's covers, don't bother and just play.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

Or actually do this, but then actually play a cannibal corpse song for like 5 seconds (lets face it, they all sound the same. They do, and I like it) before coming into the actual song.

well, you see, im playing a few shows at a firehouse for a halloween party (a couple times this month). and we're just telling stupid jokes in between songs since nobody's really paying attention


Sounds like you're giving them a reason not to pay attention.

Play your songs and get off the stage. They're not interested in your lame standup, and they're not interesting in your half-baked stories.

If you have something worthwhile to say, say it.

Some artists have the ability to connect effortlessly with audiences with a little light conversation, and some don't. If you don't, don't try, and don't worry about it. Just play the music.

Furthermore, the environment you're playing in sounds like a terrible one for trying to connect to people by talking. People are there to party. They're having their own conversations - and somebody yammering at them through a PA is just going to annoy them. (Have you been at a party where people aren't paying that much attention to the band and the singer insists on talking a lot? It's annoying as heck - because you can sort of manage to have a conversation with someone while a band is playing if that's what you want, but you can't while they're talking. And no, that's not a good thing, because the only way they're paying attention to you is in hoping you'll shut up).

You're there to play the music. Just play the music.

It's the same as all other harmony. Surround yourself with skulls and candles if it helps.

"This song is by a man named Nirvana".


EDIT: /accidentalNecro
Quite impressive for a cripple.

^that is so true, that's why i'm the frontman now, not our guitarist...

Don't even try to be funny, you are not a comedy act, you are a band. You can try to look badass, but not to much. The best is to just not try to be anything, just play.

You don't really have to introduce songs, just say "The next song is called *insertnamehere*!" Maybe say "The next song is about *insert topic here* and is called *name*"
