I think the iis is just fine for live music. 6400 isn't terrible and quite usable on that camera. I normally use auto white balance. I would try manual WB and change the temp manually for the LED lights?
Totally. I have found to under expose while shooting in RAW. Then bring it back in and lower saturation on magenta a tiny bit. maybe some on red. Then an overall photo de-sat seems to help alot.

an then of course, hit B&W and lots of details comes back. I can often adjust basics in B&W, then bring back to color and fix any other issues.

got that tip from a few posts on here combining technique.

haha thats what I do! we call that exposing to the right.

helps to recover highlights too. and yes, B&W can always fix a bad shot. I was shooting K3 in November at this one venue that had abnormally bad light. At the best of times there is two floods on the stage. Surprisingly I still got some decent images.

This forum is a virtual encyclopedia when it comes to photographic knowledge. There are many great members here who are always willing to contribute and point one in the right direction. I have presented a few questions here and every time the help has been very good, and friendly.

And it is essentially free.

Can't beat that!
