It’s Sunday, and yet I’m still buzzing from Friday night’s gig.
Everything went really well …
… erm, apart from breaking a string in the first song, the guts of my guitar’s jack hanging out, breaking a ground connection on the pots meaning the LED flashing unit stomped all over the guitar sound (so I had to turn it off 🙁 )
Yeah, apart from that it went well.
Oh, and Si managed to get on the off-beat for the last song which made it sound like we played double time, and thankfully he recovered gracefully, but apart from that it went well.
Oh, and our makeshift foldback didn’t do much for Sarah, so she thought she was going to sing flat, but she obviously doesn’t realise her brilliance as she was spot on key (I was listening, honest!) In fact someone in the audience asked her afterwards if she was a professional singer who had been especially brought in to front the band 🙂 … I would have said yes, if they’d asked me 🙂
Oh, and Gabriel … well, Gabriel was just perfect! At least I didn’t notice any dramas from him during the gig, and he was imaginative enough to play some jamming bass with Si’s drumbeat to keep the audience entertained whilst I swapped out guitars. What a professional!
Anyway, photos and video to follow real soon. So watch this space …
