These photos are from a typical gig – travelling to the venue, unloading, set up, crew, sound checks, changing room and finally the performance and the travel home…enjoy!
Here is band manager and guitarist Dave driving our trusty VW Transporter on the way to our gig for Bunn Leisure guests at Selsey.Being a Friday we had to leave pretty early to avoid the worst of the traffic.
We arrived safe and sound at the mighty Embassy Club in West Sussex one of our favourite venues. Greeted by the very lovely Sara who had the coffee on hand. It really makes a difference to the band when we receive a kind and friendly welcome as you can see by Marc’s happy face!
We have set up our equipment now and Dave is getting serious about his sound…
It’s always great to work with a professional sound and light crew – Jamie and Tom are top blokes and this is just the monitor desk!
Here is our changing room – OK so it’s a caravan but it’s very important for us to have somewhere private and secure to relax and get changed into our stage clothes before we start.
Here we are backstage behind the curtain waiting for the go, Marc and Kirstie making a few last second checks then its ‘Showtime!’
Dave says ” I don’t understand this, it was in tune when I bought it”
Here is Tom the sound monitor engineer literally seconds away from the start now…
Great pic here of Andy counting us in for the first song …1,2,3,4 and we’re off!
Lead male vocals Marc, with Kirstie on keys and Andy on drums.
Four piece band live on stage…Dave on guitar is looking happy, which is good thing!
Our fab female lead vocalist Kirstie doing her thang – she’s the band Musical Director and is a bit good on the keyboards too!
View from the side of the stage – Dave on guitar and harmony vocals, Andy on drums
We left our home at 2.30pm and its now 1am with a 2 hour drive home ahead of us.
Most gigs are a 12 hour day, really hard work but great fun. We love our job!
