Have you ever gone up on a stage? if yes how big of a crowd was the maximum you performed in front of? or do you have a stage freight?

Preforming or even a public speach, have you ever done that? And how do you feel about it?
For sure it is not easy, you have the spot lights On you and the idea of anything can go wrong is just messing with your heartbeats.
This is me on stage :
Shredding

I can tell you that stage freight won't go away with time, I have preformed in front of 600 people that was the biggest number, one time we had technical problems, and the crowd was waiting and booing us, then I just stated to jam a bit until they fixed the issue and it was like really awesome move no one thought of.
I can assure you that everyone gets a bit of a stage freight, and many times my fellows were like "Kilani I am shaking" and then I would say "loosey goosey bro" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And make them chill ๐Ÿ˜Ž
LOL that's me
LOL that's me

  • I only performed on stage once. As a toddler... Lol. I remember how scared I was to see so many people staring at me. I forgot all the dance steps, I couldn't find my father in the crowd. Just when I was going to cry there I saw him, in the crowd. Waving his arms to help me find him and he had this big encouraging smile on his face. He was so happy and proud to see me. I smiled but looked clueless too. He understood that I forgot the dance steps because of the stage fright and nervousness. I remember him doing some of my dance moves to remind me. Which did help me and then I remembered everything and started dancing happily and confidently just like I used to at home ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • I sang a few songs with a band on stage at a festival when I was 18 years old. I had sang on stage prior at like bar and grill places, school talent shows, and weddings. But the festival was the biggest crowd I sang in front of. For me it was amazing everytime. Yes I was very nervous and hands were shakey through the first song. But after that I was lost in the songs and it felt so good that people enjoyed hearing a story from me and loving the voice I have to tell it. I never thought of myself as a big deal. But people would stop me to make sure I knew that I gave them chills, made them cry, and that I have a beautiful voice. Its uplifting knowing I can make them feel so deeply. It's a natural high.

  • I'm used to public speaking and lecturing in front of rather large audiences, including at rather large Siggraph conventions of this sort of scale as shown in the pic below.
    Have you ever gone up on a stage? if yes how big of a crowed was the mixumim you preformed in front? or do you have a stage freight?
    I've also disrupted live performances while drunk at bars and got thrown out.

    • For some reason public speaking always came easily to me even when I was so shy. I wasn't shy about speaking and doing presentations to large audiences because I was prepared. There was a "script", if you will. Back when I was shy, I was more shy about the party that followed when I had to talk to people "unscripted".

  • I was in the school band from 3rd grade through college (mostly sax, and sometimes drums) and I did introductions if our instructors weren't available.

    I Emceed in Cub/Boy Scouts.

    I ran the audio systems for nearly every school event (starting with lunch music in Jr High) so I was always very visible.

    I started DJing in high school as a Sophomore, and that meant 600+ people looking to me for 4 straight hours of performance. That is some pressure.

    But I think the biggest was a fundraiser where we brought in Bob Hope. I did an introduction to 1200 people, then played in the band throughout the show.

    Needless to say, I am reasonably comfortable in those situations.

  • Not a stage, but a judo tournament. I lost out pretty quickly, but I was up against black belts. Almost disqualified for using strikes which are apparently banned. Nothing like getting your ass scolded then handed to you in front of about 100 people. Super embarrassing.

  • I guess I sing on a stage for my church most weeks. I have been on many stages for skits and talent shows. I still get stage fright for some things, like if I am playing an instrument on stage.

    • Why, I think playing instruments is easier

    • It's because I sing more often. I'm not used to playing instruments as much on stage so I psych myself out sometimes.

    • that's great โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ
      Well you should sing up for G@G got talent

  • I've been on one a lot because of school performance (every end of one year I were in one), I had sing, dance and play in a theater. It was pretty cool and it was one of the only time I weren't feeling shy or embarrassed. It was pretty crowded since they were all children (elementary school and infant school some middle and high schooler) and their parents.
    I think maybe around 300 peoples.

  • Iโ€™ve gone up on stage several times for orchestra in front of a few hundred people and once for a play that I had a big role in but those were all with other people with me. When I was around 10 I had to sing a solo for a school recital and that was in front of a few hundred people as well. Iโ€™ve also had to give speeches for classes but those were only in front of around 30 people so it wasnโ€™t too bad. When I was student council President a few years ago I also had to give a lot of speeches in front of the school. Despite all of this I still have major stage fright.

  • In my line of work, as a musician, this is an everyday thing. I got over my stage fright 20 years ago. The biggest audience I ever played for was several thousands of people. Normally, my shows, I'm lucky if 3 people show up. But even a broken timepiece is accurate twice daily. I've had a handful of gigs that were in front of large crowds of several thousands. I've played to packed houses. I've played to empty houses. Makes no difference. I just love to play.

  • Kind of...
    I don't play guitar, I play Piano or at least I used to and the largest audience I had was a room of 20-25 people.

    Always been good at the piano, even have dem pianist fingers so I can reach keys quicker and better than others but I guess over time when I started college, I had less time to play and I also felt like there was no point in playing it when I have no audience and my family would just mock my playing whereas everyone else always said I was awesome.

    I would have liked to play it but I have no need to play it at the moment so :/

    • Had a couple of extra drinks usually but that never helped much. I spent most of my time avoiding eye-contact with the audience. It was the only way I could get through the set-list.

  • Not big but full-house and crowded. And cozy. That's what I love the most. The audience is supportive, too.
