Image Matters: Making Every Gig Memorable
Although performing in a band should, of course, be all about the music, there's no denying that the visuals are also of great importance. Here we look at some interesting ways that bands and artists can start to cultivate a unique onstage image.

"Music is inherently theatrical. Some musicians enjoy leaning into this theatricality by wearing clothing that they don’t otherwise get to wear very often. You might decide to wear suits and fancy gowns, or you could dress up in an elaborate vintage theme. Treat your clothing like a costume and your musical persona as a character."
