Why Stage Presence Is Vital To Gaining New Fans.
by Tony Hossri
If you play guitar or bass in any form of a high energy band, it is not important to get a wireless guitar system……If you don’t care about your performance, or if you don’t even want to advance your bands career at all.
After a massive study from The Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
They reached the conclusion that non musicians unconsciously judge a band more on the visual performance rather than the music when hearing the music for the first time (potential fans)
In a way, its been proven by research, Stage performance is vital to gaining new fans.
For guitarist’s and bassist’s that “Do” want to advance there music career, it is important to invest in a quality wireless guitar system. Believe me though, I have been there. I could’ve won a Grammy for “Excuse Maker Of The Year To Not Get A Wireless Guitar System” We will dive into my past limiting beliefs and general myths about wireless guitar systems a bit later.
Visual Over Audio For Live Performance
This is not in any way shape or form saying that you can do nonstop back flips on stage, miss 70% of your notes, than expect to get more fans. This isn’t saying that if your music is “3 of 10” stars and your bands stage presence is a “10 of 10” means your going to gain fans. This is only stating that stage presence plays a much bigger factor in gaining fans than what us musicians thought.
According to The Academy of Sciences of the United States of America’s study, musicians are not only the first to strongly deny that visual is more important to the crowd than the music, but also do not unconsciously judge a live performance based on visual over audio, when the non musicians do. Simply said, when a musician watches a live show they don’t view visual as important as music, non musicians are visa versa. Nashville stage coaches typically claim, visual performance makes up 55% of the show where audio 45%.
Psychology Behind The Importance Of Stage Performance
Synaesthesia? is a neurological trait or condition that results in a joining or merging of senses that aren’t normally connected. The stimulation of one sense causes an involuntary reaction in one or more of the other senses. For example, someone with synaesthesia may hear color or see sound.
While music itself is specifically organized from sound, its intrinsic meaning is genuine human feeling.
To enjoy music one must understand, appreciate and share the feelings expressed in it. This, however, is equivalent to understanding, appreciating and sharing the feelings of its performer, since it is he who expresses his own feelings in the music he performs

What music has became to most of us musicians is more of the theory behind the songs, harmonies, guitar licks, bass and drum pocket, how many notes we can fit in a second, time signature, etc. But in its core, i think many of us including me for awhile, forgot what music truly is. Music is what feelings sound like.
Music Is An Art Of Sound
Not all, but many experts agree that we all have a bit of synaesthesia to a degree. Both elements of audio and visual of a live performance are of great aesthetic value.
For those who resonate with a high energy band whether it being blues/rock/reggae/alternative/metal etc, than they are resonating with the auditory element of the music. Yet if the bands performance lacks energy visually, than there will be of a great lack of aesthetic value and thus will undermine synaesthesia. This is the reason why I believe a high energy audio is strongly complimented by high energy visual.
Music is an art of sound
The two elements—the auditory and the visual—fuse into a synaesthetic unity for the listener. By this I mean that kind of unity of sensation in which the experience of one sense-impression conjures up that of another

Reasons Wireless Guitar Systems Help Increase Stage Performance and Overall Visual Of Show
If you have never performed live with a wireless guitar system, than your a dog that has never experienced the freedom and true potential without his leash.

Its true, I never knew how much more of a difference it made until I finally grew some balls, got out of my old paradigm, and purchased my 1st wireless guitar system. People never really think about this, but when your subconscious mind knows your attached to a leash (cable), it alters your ability to perform. Yet, I never realized that until I used a wireless for the first time.
List Of Reasons Why Going Wireless Helped My Stage Performance (Pics, Videos)
- Unlocked my true potential of performing (you’ll now it once you go wireless )
- The consistent thought of “am i going to trip my on my cable and unplug it amp” was gone
- Able to add spin moves -Like a Boss Ballerina lol
