January Shivers

time to do some catching up!

the Mightabins show late December was a great honour to be a part of.  we miss playing original music to ppl & with ppl who play & appreciate the same… if that makes any sense.  Mightabins in true Ramonesque style laid down 13 blistering songs in 30 mins flat. great venue at the Hard Luck & all the other bands on the bill impressed.  for something thrown together last minute during a busy holidazed period, t’was nice to see it work out in the end!

mtn dukes are rawkin’ & a rollin’.  fresh off our first ever all nighter (ie: a full nite of mtn dukes) even thou we did have an interlude featuring some very special Unlikely Guests.  the night had its peaks & valleys but “the good” far outweighed “the bad” & rumours are that we will be back again sometime very soon to Eton House. mucho thx to every1 who came out & danced the night away with us! great learning experience for us as a band.  onwards & upwards!  here’s the setlists from this historic event!

all nighter setlist

had the pleasure of hitting a few open mic/jams over the past weekend with some free time on our hands.  invaluable experiences to play with & see some different artists.  fun times & a great learning experience.

next show is with Raised on Promises, our acoustic duo.  the show is at The Local Gastropub in Barrie the first weekend of February.  if our recent jams are any indication, it will be a stompy, singalong hootenanny!  new songs & some tighter arrangements will make this a very memorable event!

gear wise, we’ve finally found the sweet spot between our little mark bass head & the telebass.  the magical moment happened sometime during the 2nd set of songs during the last mtn dukes show.  we kept tweaking & tweaking & tweaking til we got it right.  likely something we should have done at home but now at least we found it, memorized it & it’ll be ready next time.  load off our minds indeed! the other funny thing was that for the first time ever, our head kept moving on the cab as we were playing.  its soo light!  we kept having to readjust its position after every song as it was close to falling off.  that was until we got fed up & just put the darn thing on the floor.  gotta think of a better solution! open to suggestions here.  hint, hint

one day we’ll likely jot down a post about exercise.  for now, lets just say we have a snow addiction.  its tough to balance that with everything else when the snow is only here for a short while.  with that in mind, we gotta go.  the outdoors is calling! thx fer dropping in!
