Tour Tips: How to survive backstage…..

by Tammy Brackett

Touring musicians spend a lot of time in backstage and dressing room areas. Like hotel rooms, these range from top tier spaces with showers, refrigerators, and wide screen tvs to an abandoned 8×8 “office” area that looks more like a closet.

Since so much time is spent backstage and in dressing rooms, perhaps a portable backstage first aid kit should be part of your load in.

A simple small road case with things like candles, incense, pleasing photos, talismans, etc may be part of a backstage survival package.  Blankets and throws can be easily folded and brought out and tossed onto sofas.  Thin tapestries can be used on the wall. A portable humidifier helps the musicians as well as the instruments.

Remember the rules for hotel rooms and follow the same sanitizing procedures in a backstage area or dressing room.

With a little thought and planning, backstage areas and dressing rooms can become places of beauty and calm as you wait for your time on stage.

It is NEVER too late to learn to play. Our friend Bill Blue in Key West is nearly 70 and is STILL RECORDING and RELEASING MUSIC!
