So, I’ll be living a footloose though far from guaranteed fancy-free life for the next little while.
On Tuesday, the String Project have a short-notice gig at the Jericho Tavern supporting Joaquim and the Smoke Machine. I personally feel, however perfect your performance is on your own terms and with masses of preparation, it says a lot more for the durability of your musicianship and for your stagecraft if you can fit into someone else’s show, and perform successfully at short notice – especially for an out-of-the-ordinary, fusion / crossover band!
Next weekend String Project head to Bristol to do some live open-air acoustic filming for Harboured Sounds. Bristol seems to be becoming some kind of a musical vacuum cleaner – the Filthy Spectacula’s bassist is in the process of moving and the String Project’s beatboxer may be soon to follow. Good job I travel well.
Looking further ahead, the Spectacula return to Islington Electrowerkz crazyness. The Project headline a showcase for our new(ish) record label. I’m very pleased to have two concerts booked in with new clients the Welsh Musical Theatre Orchestra in November and December. And the ducks are starting to form into a row for filming and recording a new video showreel before the year is out. Exciting times!
