  1. Bit off topic, but i train dogs, and we had a client in last week with a puppy called Jura!! I liked the name, and now i know where the inspiration came from!
  2. Ahhh ok. That explains it then. We were expecting people to go. The photographer had given us the heads up to be fair. But it was still weird when everyone left!!
  3. Had a Saturday and Sunday wedding gigs this weekend. Both local too, which is a bonus. Weird situation on the Sunday though. Weather was horrible all day, so they hadn't been able to get outside for any photos. Before going on the photographer said, if a chance came he'd have to take everyone outside for group shots. I was assured too, that it was the "golden hour" (i've no idea). Anyway, about 3 songs into our first set, everyone leaves. Everyone. Only people left in the room was the caterers. Was quite a strange moment!! I've played to small crowds before, during time in originals bands. Never happened at a wedding though πŸ˜† We carried on playing. And in about 3 songs time, everyone came back in. On a side note, it was a great venue for sound.
  4. Can only echo Stephens message. Great group of people on here. Thank you so much.
  5. Looks good! Fonkay playing too
  6. At the risk of repeating myself, can't believe the generosity shown from this forum. Way exceeded anything i could have expected, so again, thank you very much to everyone.
  7. Never really listened to Steely Dan before. Liked that though. Very cool
  8. Played a public gig this weekend, so a few prospective clients could come and watch us. Cool venue in the center of Cardiff. PA and sound engineer supplied, so that makes a nice change. That, and being able to play in something other than a shirt and trousers!
  9. It is good fun to play! He has given up. He is a psychologist now. As i say, real tidy bloke too. We had a good laugh with him.
  10. Another nice wedding gig on the weekend. A castle that was built in the mid 15th Century in Gloucester. Nice. But it was a cool gig for a different reason. Remember the Boo Radleys? "Wake up Boo!"? Probably been woken up to it by GMTv for many a year? Well the lead singer was at the wedding as he is good friends with the bride. We played "Wake up Boo", with him singing as the bride and grooms first dance. First time he's sung the song live in 20 years! He's done Glastonbury, and now he's played with The Big Easy. Nowhere else for him to go, so he may as well retire πŸ˜† Real tidy bloke too. You want picture proof? Ok
  11. If we are doing photos.... We knew the wedding photographer at our last wedding, from playing in a few weddings he has been behind the camera at previously. He was kind enough to send a couple over Always make friends with the photographer
  12. TKS have something similar. Kind of, if you squint a little...
  13. The reason we had to keep the volume down was because we were in the middle of a housing estate! It just didnt feel like we wereπŸ˜†
  14. Keep forgetting to post in here. Double header last week. We had a "Ladies day at Ascot" party on Thursday. Everyone smashed by the time we got there. Early start (6pm) and early finish (8pm). Played 2 hours straight by request. Not a good sign though, when you've just loaded your gear in, haven't even started setting up, and the owner says "you're going to have to keep it quiet you know?!" Probably best you didn't book a 5 piece band then mate! Very surreal. It was based in a Victorian mansion, that had been renovated, big stone walls surrounding it. Set inside a brand new housing estate?!?! WTF?!? Amazing venue, and honestly, when you're inside, you could be in anywhere. Open the big wooden doors to get to the "outside", and there a dog pissing on someones bin bag. Really weird. Saturday was a bit more of our normal affair. Wedding in a big marquee set outside in a field. Lovely
  15. Crazy amount of detail in your build Andy. Awesome to see it. Nice job, again!
  16. I was seriously underwhelmed by eBay and Paypal when i required their help. Hope you get it sorted though.
  17. I just want to say again, just the fact anyone is willing to give anything is more than i ever expected. Cant say how thankful i am. Very, very cool 😎
  18. Honestly, didn't expect any of this, as i've said on the other thread i initially started, just to warn people of the fact there was a scammer out there. Great community here. Thank you so much
  19. Hahaha guitarist takes "less is more" to the next level!!
  20. Nah it was South Wales. Honestly, one of my favorite venues i've ever played
  21. Don't often post in here (not sure why), but we had a weekend of gigs that was a bit different to our usual. We usually play one or two weddings a week. But the venue for the wedding this weekend was a bit different....a hippy commune. I don't know if that's the PC thing to call it (not sure what else to call it tbh) , but that's what it was. And it was brilliant!!! Such a fantastic venue. about 5 miles from any neighbours. All off grid and self sufficient. Fantastic venue. Big open fields with various places to sit, all trees and bushes adorned with decoration. A really cool vibe , as you'd expect. The actual wedding room was a massive circular stone building, that was decorated beautifully. Great sound in there. The bar staff were people who lived there, and were super friendly. All drinks were free (not so good for us as we don't drink when we play, but thought it was worth a mention). Amazing. Had so much fun! Then on Sunday we played a public gig. Only play 2 or 3 a year. We headlined a local cider festival, and there were about 500 odd people. Had a great laugh again. Top weather, top weekend.
  22. Not the hardest to play, and i think there isn't actually a bassline in the song, but Chaka Khan - Aint Nobody. The way we have arranged it, it's really fun to play. I think the trick to making this song really cool (maybe all songs?!?) is "less is more". It does go down well too, so that's an added bonus.
  23. I found one eventually, and it arrived last week. Unbelievable value for money!
