In this Preshow Rituals segment, Dan Mickler, of the rock band, Fall To June, talks about what they do before every show. You can check out their rituals, after the break.
We are a live-based band, so getting a good stretch is always important… we always give our ALL! Before our stretch, there is always a pre-show meeting (AKA production/safety meeting). Once we are side stage, most of the time I see Nate and Jeremy, beer in hand, pacing in 8ft circles. I often wonder if their speeds will sync up… similar to waiting for your turn signal to match up with the guy in front of you at a stoplight. Ben likes to do some vocal warm ups and sip on his “singer sauce” while I just tend to jump up and down and scream real loud.
After our individual shenanigans, we come together in a huddle. By now we are clear minded. A few inspirational words are spoken, somebody cracks a joke, and we feel like none of our feet are even touching the ground anymore… then, typically somebody rips one, and we make a break for the stage and proceed to melt faces!
