I've wanted to ask this for a long time. I've been reluctant because it's a sensitive issue for me. I'm slightly afraid of the answer. I mainly am asking Enchant this question, but I know that several of the people that post here are members of bands, so feel free with your thoughts also. What does it feel like when you connect with the audience? Do you ever wonder if we really "get it"? Do you ever watch the audience listen, as we watch you play? As a listener in the audience, I often wonder if I even "get it" sometimes. Many times it's as if it's some type of invisible connection between the band and the entire audience that can be felt and experienced. When that happens it's a really cool feeling for me, but I just always wonder if the feeling is reciprocated. I've always been afraid of the answer because, in reality, what motivates a band to play, may not be the same motivation I have to listen.
