DanceMania at the MCG June 26

Postby TheBottomLine » Wed Jun 02, 2010 5:57 am

well it's been a long time between gigs for me now , but one of my new bands has scored a big Coeperate gig at " The Melbourne Cricket Ground " for our first gig.
All Production supplied !
So we are going to get a film crew in and tape this Gig .
I've got a good feeling about this band , we have lots of interest from Agents and interstate bookings waiting.
This one is a Black Tie event with tickets available at $150 per head with proceeds going to a great cause.

I will be laying down the Groove on a 5 string Fretless all night
no DNA rig yet , but all my gigs are going into the DNA G.A.S fund !

:D :dance: :dance: :dance:
Well , well , well Ladies , Gents and Others !

It's Gig day at last !
Months of hard work will be over too soon Tonight , the first of many fun gigs for my new band.
I will try to post some pics and video when it's available.
We will have the Dancers in place by the next gig ( still auditioning Dancers and we didn't want too many distractions for our first gig )
We also just got an offer for a 3 month Tour of China , but declined as the money wasn't enough to leave home for any more than a paid holiday.

Maybe next year , I will have a full DNA rig by then !

Without a pic there is no new bass and the money hasn't been spent. Right? ;)

:) first gig went very well and ended too soon
Bang zoom , over , done and dusted !
All the songs were well recieved and the people danced and enjoyed themselves , considering the heavey subject material and purpose for the night ( Child Wise raises awareness and actively fights child abuse and sex slavery )

It rained all night , but the load out was a dream as we were parked under the Arena , there was service elevators and trollies for us to use.
The P.A crew were great to work with and gave us a good mix , they also let us run a line from the board to a mini disc recorder so I hope we will get some good sound files out of this gig.
The film crew turned out to be just one guy and he left after the first set , but I hope that there will be some good footage that we can use.

I spoke to lots of dignatories and handed out buisness cards , so I hope that more work will follow soon.
All in all " first gig "
" not too shabby "
I will post some links when the sound and video have been edited.

Very cool gig, bro. Glad to see things went so well, and it looks as if the band has serious potential. Will be fun to watch how this all develops.
Keep Thumpin'!

Thanks Lane ,
yep I'm pretty Jazzed about the potential for this band and I'm throughing all my energy into it !
It will take a few more gigs to get the Production side of the show more refined but every step is a step forward !
Now I have to get on with the serious job of auditioning Dancers
