Is anyone from here playing over the weekend?

 

I'm not sure how I have managed it, but I have three gigs at the festival this year. Friday night at Holmes Mill with Katoush (instrumental jazz). Then two on Sunday, 2.00pm Aspinall Arms and 7.00pm Rose & Crown with The Out & Out Blues Band.

 

I do know that @shug is at the Rose & Crown on Sunday evening because he's on after us. 

 

We've decided to make a weekend of it, so we're staying Friday to Monday in Clitheroe.

I've got a couple, too. As mentioned, Sunday evening at the Rose and Crown with The Merkins and Monday about 4 at the Aspimall Arms with the Cheating Hearts. What rig will you be using at the RnC @ossyrocks? I'd be interested in hearing that SC. I'll be using the 610 and GK RB400 in all likelyhood.

Ahh no, SC staying home that weekend. I'm planning to use the Bergantino with two ONE10's, as I can use just one of the cabs for my quieter gig on the Friday at Holmes Mill. Sorry Shug.
I know you love a big rig, I'm not sure a single SC would cut the mustard for you.

You know we too well, Rob.

 

There's a BF 210 for sale at the minute and only in Harrogate. That'd do me for small gigs, I'm guessing AND I could use it with the 610 for max Roosteresque overkill. Alas, I have no cash...

 

I'll look forward to  hearing the Bergantino, mind. 

 

All all your RVJF gigs on bass? Have you forsaken the guitar altogether?

I have indeed, all band gigs are bass now. I do the very occasional unusual guitar gig, the last being "Alien: The Musical" at West End Playhouse in Morecambe a few weeks ago. A four show run including a Saturday matinee. It was an absolute hoot to do. I am also soon to be playing guitar for a 15 year old young woman for her Youtube channel, performing her latest tune alongside other musicians from the Playhouse. One of her offerings has had half a million views! The guitar playing side is more just helping out with community stuff, my main focus for myself is bass. Just back home from the second band rehearsal today! Jazz band afternoon, blues band evening, gig on Friday.
