Fun gig last night!

Played the Derby in Strathroy last night.

More fun than usual this time.

By about 11:30 the place was packed with co-workers of mine just getting off shift. A few of them had been off earlier in the day and were already quite primed and rowdy when they got there.

Part way through the 2nd set, a friend from work came stumbling near the stage and I knew he was up to something. He threw a pair of underware at me! They wound up swinging from the neck of my bass. Nice ones too - size XXXL grannie panties with "I Love You James" in black marker on them. Everyone from work loved the band. I noticed a few camera flashes going off as well - I guess a number of them want to prove their boss can have some fun and cut loose a bit.

As I was setting up a little earlier in the night, a fine gentleman came up to me and introduced himself as Mark, aka "Lowtones". That was pretty cool to meet a fellow forumite and talk shop over a couple beers. :food-smiley-004: He stayed for most of the first set and said our mix sounded pretty good which is always one of my concerns.

I guess you didn't like it well enough to stay until 3:00am and help me tear down though eh Mark? :tongue:

I realize this response is a little late coming but I'm glad your gig went well James.

My band (TOMMYROT) and I personally can no longer stand playing at the Derby. The crowds there have been dwindling and there response is less than stellar. The only thing we enjoy is the free case of beer they give us in the back room and the good pay. I'm doubtful we'll be playing there anytime soon if ever again. (Mind you we're also trying to stay away from cover gigs and play originals only)
