getting the chance to play feels like being lost in the best dream…

peter hook & the light!

peter hook & the light!

the dream continues & what a week that was! lets lay it out in quick fashion!

Tues: got to see the Selecter!  one of the essential 2-tone era ska bands that we had not yet had the pleasure to see live.  we even met the singer Pauline while she sat behind the merch table.  a steady stream of pics & book signings were the order of the moment.  she was great to chat with & share a few laughs.  their set was energy filled from start to finish.  we dared not leave the dancefloor so we could soak up the entire event. well worth the muscle soreness the next day & the chance to hear “celebrate the bullet” live.  that song is pure magic. we posted some pics on our Flickr.

Thursday: Mightabins first full band jam of the year followed by a Peter Hook and the Light concert! first off, the Mightabins have been wanting to jam for a long time but every1’s sked’s have been just too haywire of late.  but things now have cooled down & more jams are in order.  2 new punky songs came out of our first full band jam of the year. could a show be next?  then after the jam… the Peter Hook show was literally off the hook!  great to hear the early New Order material done so well & witness 2 bass players on stage!  & a father/son combo to boot!  memorable show indeed! we posted a few pics on our Flickr here. our ears just couldn’t get enough!

Friday: Gig! Amazing full night at Bigfoot Smokehouse!  Very casual atmosphere there & we played well with the Hayley Carro Trio. can’t wait to return! debut of a new cajon kick device went well (more on that in another post).  its a great step fwd that can’t be “beat”… hahaha.

Satuday: Outdoor Gig!  Stage got flooded.  Show cancelled.  ah well… the thing about outdoor shows is that they are absolutely the best when the weather co-operates but on the flipside can be a nightmare when the weather takes a turn for the bad.

Sunday: Open Mic! always a treat!  got to play a lot of bass & some cajon.  many hilights but one in particular had to be learning & then playing Duran Duran’s “Rio”(not once but twice!) that SAME day.  crazy fun!

its actually been a hectic past week & a half with 7 dates in the span of 11 days if u include our Open Mic duties.  well worth every note & every moment. as we like to put it:

playing music is like reading a good book you can’t put down.

every note a word.

every jam a page.

every show a chapter.

& we cant wait for what is next.
