Certain requirements must be met in order to front a band
This is Mark Hall. He is the lead singer of Casting Crowns. They played the opening night of the Break Forth conference in Edmonton last night. What I love about this photo is that it matters not what he looks like or what their music sounds like – he is clearly the lead vocalist of a rock band. How do I know this? He has employed the fist pump.
The fist pump is one of the many essential elements of fronting a band. If you front a band and do not employ the fist pump, I think you can be replaced. Isn’t that one of the rules? I’m not sure, because I’ve never fronted a band, but I’ve attended a good number of rock concerts and every single one of them has included a fist pumping lead singer.
Can you think of other rules by which rock bands must abide?
