Momentum

Momentum is defined as mass or energy in motion.

In our show, momentum is very important, and we accomplish it with song choice, tempo, lighting, audience interaction, the number of musicians, etc.

When we started the band, Manager Ed Duncan suggested we perform a non-stop show without breaks to build momentum throughout the show and not lose energy by taking breaks.  This was a big selling point for the band early in our career.  Now all of our National Party Bands and many other bands across the country have followed suit.  Many people ask, “How do you do it?” The answer is that we are creating a performance, and if you’re creating you usually have more energy when you finish and time seems to stand still.  Because we control the energy -- and the audience is creating the performance with us -- many of our shows go into overtime as the audience just does not want the party to stop.

Momentum is important in life as well.  When you learn a new skill, for example, you slowly build momentum over time.  It’s important to understand that momentum can take time to get going, especially when you’re trying something new or starting a business.  Once you begin to establish momentum, it will become easier to take the correct action you need for your task.  For instance, it’s much easier for the band to learn new songs now than it was when we started. The actions we take today are built on the actions we have taken in the past.

This makes me also think about the great pastime of sailing.  I got my sailing license a few years ago.  When the boat is moving, it’s much easier to change course than if you’re sitting still.  Life is like that, too.  Even if you start off in the wrong direction, you can change course and get on track towards your goal.  So, get started and let momentum help you.

Happy sailing.
