Every Tuesday night in The Loft
7:30 – 9:30 pm
Come to The Loft any Tuesday night to meet and play with other area musicians. If you are a singer, guitarist, bassist, keyboard player, drummer or play a lead instrument and have some basic musical ability but you just don’t know how to get it together with a band, then Gig 101 is for you! For those who “graduate” from the Gig 101 experience, we provide professional musicians to join you or back you at a CML Sessions event once a quarter.
Each Gig 101 participant will:
- Experience a weekly, two-hour band practice tutored by our staff
- Learn how to write a lead sheet (lyric chart with chords) to use with a backup band
- Learn how to communicate tempo, song key and style to band members
- Develop a new repertoire and/or polish your existing library of songs
- Meet other singers and musicians looking to collaborate in musical projects
- Perform using professional music equipment provided by Crescendo Music Loft
- Learn how to communicate with people who play different instruments
- Learn band etiquette
- Learn effective rehearsal techniques
- Hone your own musical skills in a supportive and encouraging environment
- Gain confidence to perform at other CML events and at local open mics
- Become a professional, gigging musician

We’ve taken beginning and intermediate musicians who hadn’t ever been on stage to the point where they are now performing professionally.
