    Don't forget your camera and a lens, the only one you have that will be any good is your 50F1.8

    Lighting would be good, but your sig says one SB and no hint of triggers.

    Find out what the band members are like and use that in your photos.

    I really hate your standard, "everyone stand around and make a mean face" type shoot. Get creative and thing outside of the box. Have them in motion and doing things, or posed creatively. Use props, toys, clothes, garbage, fire, etc...

    Agreed. Stay away from the old warehouse, grunge clothing, and stink face shoot. Catch peoples attention by strange location shooting. My suggestions:

    -Cheesy family portrait style shot.
    -Maybe picking flowers in the park shot.
    -Posing with strangers shot (old people would work very well for this).
    -Anything that will make a promoter look at the photo for more than 1/2 sec.

    Do a search for band shoot, anything that pops up throw out.

    And yes, bring your camera and lenses, all of them. Wide angle shots can work too.

    Keep it natural, get them with their instuments maybe. There's nothing worse than over posed band photos. I'm doing a shoot with a band and I'm doing a busking shoot, just sitting on the street with acoustic instruments.. and then to a restaraunt for dinner and drinks.

    I would keep them in their natural scene... have them just doing there thing, hanging out, jamming out, or maybe in a setting that suits them...but i wouldnt pose them all silly ...
