Eurghh… only just about recovered from fantastic night , many many thanks to our hosts. Outdoor gig with great lightshow and enormous 12K PA. Miles too big really but gave a great sound on tick over. Well done the guys at PDS Peterborough for the sound and lights. We played 2 x 1 hour sets and were followed by Jackdaw a young 3 piece from Brighton – very talented bluesers. No major cockups but my SG was playing up so I played my PRS throughout – need to take my SG back to my tech Matt at Longfoot Guitars . Oh the lights went out for the last two numbers , think we melted something… those blistering riffs must have done it ! Nice to see my guitar teacher, mentor and friend Gizz Butt there to support us as well as many other old friends. Worst track for me – Born under a bad sign, Best track – Red House
Ian our new singer’s first gig – what a guy! Went down very well , nice crowd. Lots of nice girlies dancing to make feel like rock stars! Aided and abetted by Daryll who did our sound , many thanks again mate. Most songs went well but still lots of room for improvement especially endings. Worst song – Dust my broom, Best song – Johnny b goode. Supported Recreation Ground Road again (last time was at the Pear Tree, who put in an excellent tight performance of their own material. We now have enough songs for a full set of 2 hours so we can now and should gig on our own.
Ive sacked myself because we have found a great new singer. Ian has a fantastic powerful soulful voice and that means were able to really motor on now. I can concentrate on the guitar stuff and the whole sound of the band should improve tremendously….
