In this Preshow Rituals segment, Tommy Johnson, of the rock band, Bobaflex, shares what he does before every show. You can check out his rituals, after the break.

Everyone has a different way to get ready for a performance. First off if we are headlining the show soundcheck is very important! Just knowing that everything is working properly puts your mind at rest. Unfortunately, you don’t always get one so I just get my drums and gear staged and make sure nothing is broken from the night before.

As far as getting myself ready it starts about two hours before we hit the stage. I start with warming up my hands and wrists by playing with a practice pad. During that time, I make sure and stretch really well and drink plenty of water! It’s the best way to prevent injury and to keep your muscles from tightening up during the set. I then take a minute to change into stage clothes and put on my game face that involves a lot of dark make up. I may have a drink or two to relax and focus. Sometimes I’ll listen to some music, bands like Ministry, Mastodon or Rammstein really gets the blood flowing before I perform.

The last 30 minutes or so before we hit the stage I like to hang out with the rest of the guys. It doesn’t matter if we are in our bus, backstage in a green room somewhere or outside. To me, I think it helps with the show. It subconsciously gets everyone thinking together as one.

Keep up with the band on Facebook and Twitter!
