  1. we have garden parties booked for the first two weekends in July and a pub gig on the 17th expecting them to be rearranged to be honest
  2. Cheers thanks for that they have a b stock one available for around £ 200 in natural even with the taxes it’ look a lot of bass for the money
  3. Thanks guys the reviews I read were that the pickups in the jazz were not great , and the musician style pickup in the Precision version wasn’t the best however the split coil was good but in passive mode the Weight is also a worry , there are a couple of cheaper Precision’s that would probably serve my purpose especially as it would only be gigged in an emergency or played around on at home
  4. Looking for a relatively cheap back up to my Marusczyk Jake as at the moment we have regular gigs starting again at the beginning of July Covid permitting. I'm down to one bass for the first time for a while, however not keen on spending too much as i always tend to use the Jake, so a spare would at the most time be left in a case or on a stand for emergencies. Quite like the look of these for the price especially as they have the same pick up configuration as my Jake , just wondered if anyone has experience of them be interested in peoples thoughts Seen a few you tube reviews which seem favourable Cheers
  5. First one back for us today early evening outside gig at the local cricket club, ticketed sold out , think the appetite for live music is certainly out there we’re probably under rehearsed and bound to be a bit rusty but very excited to be back playing live again
  6. We’ve got 16 booked in to date starting with an outdoor gig on the Sunday of May bank holiday others are a mixture of pub gig functions and a couple of garden parties which start beginning of July and hopefully will go ahead Quite a few of our regular venues are still waiting for budget confirmation but we expect more bookings to start coming in from May So good to have gigs to look forward to again
  7. I’d really like to try one of these been looking at them for a while , been trying to find a second hand one as I don’t fancy shelling out for a new one at the moment , don’t seem to be many second hand ones around at the moment though Might have to wait till shops are open again and see if I can find one to try out
  8. Really interested in one of these struggling to justify it at the moment with all our gigs being cancelled but finding it hard to resist. Thought I was set on black but the gold finish looks great might have to think again.
  9. We played last week social club socially distanced all seated one set went on at 8.20 to 9.30 packed up and out by 10 home by 10.30 could get used to this 😂😂. gig arranged through our drummers girl friend whose dad is in charge there , they normally only have solo artists. Not our audience at all really as the age range was probably 50 - 75. Wasn’t looking forward to it at all thought we would be too loud for them and thought we didn’t have the correct sort of repertoire although we have a really eclectic mix we do a lot of indie stuff as that’s our usual audience. to be honest I couldn’t have been more wrong they were up for it from 1st song obviously no dancing , but lots of singing along which isn’t strictly allowed. I got the impression they were just happy to have some sort of normality and were determined to enjoy it. thoroughly enjoyable evening great to play live only the 4th time since lockdown forgotten how much I enjoy gigging and miss playing every week. Cant see anything else happening till next year unfortunately as all our gigs have been cancelled up to end of November, expecting all December gigs to go the same way
  10. Most venues near us seem to be going down the solo / duo route which is probably understandable because of cost , while we understand the situation and are quite prepared to help out our regular venues by reducing normal fees, we won’t be playing anywhere for free and won’t be taken advantage off especially when they’re selling tickets.
  11. Got offered a gig Saturday at what was previously a night club in Wigan . That has turned the old smoking area which is large into a beer garden , ticketed event 100 people at circa £5 a head sold out DJ and band , started off offering us a free bar and accommodation we all live 15 minutes away , when we said no upped it to £100 , no thanks mate pretty sure the DJ won’t be doing it for £25 , we’re generally a busy band and all keen to get back gigging but have to draw the line somewhere, our normal price for pub gigs is £300 minimum we offered to do it for £200 due to Covid but they seem to assume they were doing us a favour. I’m aware times are hard but hope it’s not the sign of things to come
  12. We did a birthday party in someone’s back garden last week bit strange but nice to be out again, we were due to play outside at the local cricket club tonight after the game and another garden party birthday next Friday. However after Greater Manchester was put back into some extra lockdown measures in due to an increase in cases both have been postponed. A bit frustrating as Wigan has one of the lowest rates in the North West and well below the national average. But they have decided to include the whole area in the measures other than borough by borough. We have another gig booked for next Saturday at a bowling club but I fully expect that to be cancelled as well.
  13. Played last Friday at a garden party and have been booked for 2 more this month, enough room to social distance maybe these parties are the new thing. We,’re also doing an outside gig at the local cricket club where we rehearse free for them. in all honesty while as a 4 piece we are able to social distance I’m not convinced that these gigs should be allowed based on the guidelines that have been sent. However there seem to be numerous pubs in the area advertising live music outside and i’ve Even seen a couple starting to advertise indoor gigs. Nice to back out playing though
  14. No it’s the Mexican version Eric looks bass is now on hold for someone
