JC on Keyboards at AylesburyFirst Show of 2014

Our first show of 2014 took place at The Limelight Theatre in Aylesbury this past weekend and what a show it was! We had a great audience, the room had good acoustics and our light show worked really well after the upgrades we have made over the winter. Lot’s of positive comments were shared with the audience in the bar after the show and late on the band found a takeaway that had a teeny tiny restaurant in the back so we could stuff our faces with kebab, pizza and other worldly delights. Finally, the Holiday Inn proved to be a very comfortable hotel that, despite being built on a flood plain, didn’t flood. That was a bonus because it rained all weekend wherever we were in the UK!

Sound Desk Recording

So, to celebrate our show in Aylesbury, we’ve decided to share a short recording of Domino which was recorded straight out of the sound desk on the night. Well, we say short but Domino isn’t that short is it? Have a listen and see what you think:

 

Going Pro With A GoPro

We also tried something new at Aylesbury because we had a new gadget to play with. A GoPro Hero camera is tiny and can be placed anywhere on the stage or indeed in the venue. We decided for fun to check out what happens under Marko’s nose during a gig and we were so impressed with the video quality, we thought we’d also share some of it here on our website. For the techie people, we replaced the camera audio with the desk audio that we recorded on the night because the camera isn’t great at recording sound on a loud stage. We hope you enjoy our little experiment:
