We tune to 440.

High energy?

Well, I give what I have every night. Generally speaking, after three 1 hour sets I have very little left in the tank.

What I mean to say, is that after I spank the plank I have no gank left in the tank.

We tune down 1/2 step. I am interested in this suggestion. Can you explain?
I presume you are tuning down a 1/2 tone because of a keyboard- sax horn -etc. this means that when you are playing in E the band is playing in F.
f=1 flat
E=4 sharps

now, when you tune to A 442 Hz
you are actualy raising every key and note 2 Hz.
It is a fact that a band that is playing sharp tends to want to push harder, resulting in the audience also responding.
try it and see what happens at your next rehearsal.
Keep me advised.
