UU Podcast Gigging Do’s & DON’TS | The Ukulele Underground Podcast #116

Setlist, Song Request, & Breaking into Gigging​

This week, we’re hanging out with friend of the show, Kyle Furusho, and finding out the biggest Do’s and DON’TS for Gigging Musicians and Audience Members. The Podcast starts off with a question from Kyle’s biggest Fan, Mickey Aüto. Then we ask Kyle how he makes a Setlist, and how he handles unknown Song Requests. Aldrine ask Kyle how to deal with someone picking up your tip jar, and explains why audience members should never do it. A viewer asks how they can break into Gigging, and if it’s ok to write a “Song Menu” instead of taking request. The guys explain why they don’t want to play certain songs, and how song request can break the flow of a show. The podcast is topped off with some stories of unwanted additional performers.
