First Show

Ok so, my band and I are planning to play our first live show within the next couple of months. However, I'm used to playing acoustic versions of our songs and songs we cover.

So my question is, do vocalists usually differ their voices when they play live compared to acoustic performances?

Just to clarify, we are a rock band. Thank you in advance for any help

not sure you get the difference between live and acoustic

obviously your vocals have to been so much stronger with acoustic. and probably more passionate. most popular bands hide lack of talent with imagery. doesn't help when you are on a stool, with a guitar, and no noise

What I mean to say, is like when I play acoustic, I'm comfortable with my vocals, but when we play on stage, with electrics, it seems like a lot of artists kind of shout te lyrics rather than sing them, is that the way to go?

I agree with Peacelog! Sing, and let the sound guy worry about adjusting your mic and sound levels.

How did it go by the way?

On the other hand, sound guys are notorious for not paying attention. More often than not they tend to care more about their pint of beer, lol. It depends, of course.
