HELLO, I AM CURRENTLY A SINGER IN A TRAVELING BAND. MY PROBLEM IS, WHEN I PLAY IN A NEW ROOM, THE MUSIC SOUNDS DIFFERENT TO ME, IT IS LIKE I HAVE TO FIGURE OUT THE KEY TO SING THE SONGS IN. I NEVER TRUST MYSELF TO BE ON KEY WITH THE FIRST NOTE. SOMETIMES I FEEL I HAVE TO SING THE FIRST FEW NOTES OF KEY JUST TO HEAR MYSELF AND THEN I START SINGING ON KEY. WHAT IS THAT? AND WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT THAT?

The acoustical properties of a room can be different with each room. A room that is very dead (little reverbration) will sound much different that a live (lots of reverbration) room. A live room will have notes that hang around longer because of the constant vibrations that are there and cause confusion for some people. A good example is a typical high school gym. The vibration there is usually pretty live.
What is happening is that the difference in vibrations is cuasing a short period of confusion till you get used to it and then it become more solidified in your head. Your ear adapts very quickly to changes of this kind. I wouldn't worry a lot about it. As you become more experience, this effect will become less bothersome.
