Music stands can help a act or a band perform and move a crowd. In the beginnings of professional music performance singers relied strictly on the projection of their voices to reach the audience. With the inception of new technology many singers began using microphones to help them be heard by a bigger audience in a stadium. These microphones helped revolutionize the way that music was performed especially during live events. For many acts carrying the microphone around was a hazard as many singers also incorporate dance in their performance. These early microphones had cords attached to them that a performer could trip over.
With the help of a microphone stand the threat of tripping on stage was minimal. With a folding music stand from musicians friend a band can carry around this important piece of equipment without having to worry about space. This type of music stand can be found at most general music stores for a very reasonable price.
