The most important thing about a gig is your stage presence. When people play a gig its for entertaining others. Lots of people forget that. o matter how good the music is, if you just go up there, stand still and play then no one will remember you. Try moving around and if ur feeling confident maybe fiddle around with lights (strobe, darkness, lamps etc)

Make it a good show, my band's first few gigs were instrumental and with no bass, but everything's falling into place and things are speeding up already. The stage is a good bit of space; use it. Try walking about during songs, standing with one foot on the monitor or kneeling down and shouting into the crowd during a song, it'll help you be remembered and therefore, booked again
ohai little sig.

^ Sounds like a plan, except the singing is going to be hard

Yeah , cause they dont want to play bass and theyre close friends and i dont want to get kicked out of my own band so i kinda have no choice, and i know other bass players anyways.. We play stuff like Zeppelin, and Metallica, etc.

maybe only play songs with two guitars and then share the parts. That way there is always one person not playing available to do singing........ Non-musicians can find it very hard to connect to instruments...... as a rule of thumb..... you need vocals if you wanna get places

You say Led Zeppelin?

Stairway can easily be sorted into 3 guitars

Solo - Distorted Guitar
Clean - Rhythm on the chords
Acoustic - Arpeggios

Being a Canadian, you may have heard of a Canadian band called April Wine, who were big in the 70s and 80s.
Check out an album by them called 'Harder ... Faster' especialy a song called 'I Like To Rock.'
April Wine had three guitarists when they recorded this album in 1979 and they pulled it off brilliantly without over-complicating it.
Pretty easy vocals too.
