A good head singer will keep the drum together and will gather the right mix of help.

Speaking of Head Singers I have a problem with many of these people charging a lot of money and Motel rooms for their entire
help.

When I was younger I was given a rule of thumb to live by as an
Indian. When someone ask you for help give it if you are at the
least able . When I am asked to be on a Head Staff I will say yes if I am not already booked. I have taught this same thing to my
children. I have journeyed over a thousand miles to help a friend. We don't ask how much, just where and when.
My family help to sponsor a Powwow in our area. The expences come from our pockets and any funds raised at the dance. We are always looking for help from year to year. A very good friend has helped us for several years. He hasn't asked for much in return, this is the old way. Are there any others out there that aren't overly proud of the dollar but more interested in the traditions. Don't take this wrong, we share with our head staff the best we can.

Gotta be all together....as a dancer I really pick that stuff up when I am in the arena....if the singers are off, deffinately the drum beat but thats obvious, but when the singers vocals are off so am I...but when it all comes together, I get lost and dance like there is no tomorrow.

Thats a really common place thing up here, groups that aren't together enough to put it all together and if I can't feel it, it shows in my dancing...More than one time after a dance I'll be asked why I didn't just tear up the floor, and my response is that I just didn't feel it tonight.

Togetherness and united voices. Nothing worse than a bad drum trying to be loud, like that will help improve the quality.

Just my 2 cents

yeah...good singing....the kind that gets a woman singer out of her chair... walk all the way across the "dance floor" (aye)...just to sing with a group of men that have beautiful voices is always a good sign..........also.........as a woman singer.....to get your voice to match theirs.............oh baby!!!!:)

Man, that says it all, doesn't it? We have all seen "drummers" that dwindled away - but the singers stay forever!

Thumbs up Both are important

Togetherness is key. Volume will come into play as time progresses and you'll have a kicka$$ drum group.:Chatter

I agree with everyone when they say that togetherness is the most important thing, volume is important only if they're already together, but if they're not together, it just doesn't sound as good...

Thumbs up it's allabout togetherness

....togetherness...there aint nothing worse then trying to get down to one good song but theres several drum beat!!! Dam,I hate that...! And if the head singer was a good head singer he would have the sense to round up the fellas that were messing up the song...kick some A$$ and tell them to get straight or get to steppin'...!!!!!

Red face I feel that it has to be in your heart.

I dont belivie a Women or a man, Should get up an sing for a group, or play the drum, if they dont have it in there hearts. If they cant find the beat of the drum pounding in there hearts as the men play, i dont think they should stand behind a drummer an sing that song. Becuase i feel that the druman drummer is a important part of a Pow wow. And if they are off, then they'll throw everyone off. And that sounds really BAD. So i feel that they should be combined and sing together.

I think you have-ta have togetherness before volume.......

If you have that then you can work on becomming louder... It's not all about blasting out a tune, either....

Thats my opinion anyway.....


Just look at Cozad's.... There one of the better gruops out there.. And they have one, if not the most relaxed styles of singing that I've ever seen. And they still make me tap my toes.... and wanna get up outta my chair.

Togethorness for sure. All singers have to know the song and have the same beat. No one should be out of tune and off beat. The rest will follow.
