This is not really a review, because I was actually in the band playing the bass guitar! My first proper gig since Oct 1989! I’ve been so lucky to hook up with a great bunch, not only smart, fun people, but great musicians, who share my passion for the indie music of our youth and take great delight in re-interpreting those songs. I couldn’t be more chuffed with how well it’s turning out.
I’ve only been in the band for weeks it seems, but we managed to get a strong 10 song set together to play at a fund raising event for the wonderful ‘Dads Rock Academy’. ‘Dads Rock Academy (Facebook page) is Scotland’s first and only rock academy for young people and their parents. It offers weekly rock band tuition to kids and their dads, as well as giving them a free instrument whilst they attend the academy. Dads Rock Academy is open for young people aged 7-16 years to attend. The idea is that the families learn together, having a shared experience of learning how to rock!’
All went well with our set and the whole night was a joy, and to see so many aspiring musicians, young and not so young, start out in there live musical journeys was a privilege. Thanks so much to everybody who put so much into the event and gave us such a lovely welcome. We do need more rehearsal time of course, but we really enjoyed it and the few videos taken don’t look all that bad. Thanks to the video and photo takers especially Grant Dickson. See more on our new Facebook Page. which I encourage you all to like and set following to ‘see first’! 😉
