Phew! What a mental couple of months!
I didn’t get a chance to write anything during February at all as we have been so busy. February was filled with various work, including more visits to the studio from Eksel, who has been working on album material with Chris. We also had local gigs with the County High School, and Newport’s Oliver! and rounded the month off with sound reinforcement for a town planning meeting, drum recording for a local band and a meditation CD!
Into March and the work kept coming. First off we had the Newport Battle of the Bands at the beginning of the month, a karaoke birthday party, and then we were into a run of theatre shows and a show for CutterWelderMaestro. We did tech runs and four performances of “Joseph” at the Friends School, followed straight after by “Once on this Island” for local theatre group Pure Rhythm. There was no let-up that week as Eksel was in again as well as new client Dave Garratt.
The next week saw the arrival of 70 Swedish exchange students and we were again called upon to provide sound reinforcement for their band and choir for performances in Newport and Bishop’s Stortford, as well as a church service and evening disco.
And so to the end of the month and we have just provided live sound for “Everlife” at the St. Andrews Baptist Church in Cambridge. The band played an awareness concert to raise money for a trip to Nicaragua and were supported by Gabriella Hindy and local band Solace. Everlife are a female-fronted band from Nashville who were signed to Disney records and supported Miley Sirus and the Jonas Brothers so it was great to work with them. More information about the band can be found HERE. Check back soon for pictures from the show.
