On Saturday night I was back at Stone’s in Eastleigh, playing bass again with 2Blue. It was another fun and successful night I think! This time I was packing a bit more bottom-end punch to get round gigging without a PA as such, using a solid-body 5-string bass run into a chunky floor wedge. There was certainly no problem with feedback this time, though arguably even more power would have been preferable as I had all the volume controls and some of the EQ all the way up for the whole gig! Either way it did the job and it’s another nice ongoing musical working relationship to cultivate.
Still on the to-do list: final video cuts of the new showreel and various overdubs (violin, backing vocals, possibly viola) on String Project tracks; then a week tomorrow a Welsh Musical Theatre Orchestra concert. Don’t expect a slow-up to Christmas round here!
