The audience cares, but not exact;y about the same things the musicians care about. I mean, disco was popular because it had a beat; early rock'n'roll, rockabilly, and (nowadays) house music, ambient dance music, etc. are all popular for the same reasons. Most guys listening to a live band just seem to want a blast of sound, most women want a beat to dance to, and that's about it. It's been that way as long as I've been around (which seems a *long* time), and I don't think it's likely to change. Nothing wrong with that, really. The Beatles were a big hit because they had a heavy beat to the music; we only noticed they were great songwriters and players later on. Play your best, sound your best; if you want to please yourself, that's all you have to do.
