Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead or Alive (open mic)
« on: March 02, 2017, 03:24:48 am »
So I did an open mic with Matt last night at Founders, which is a really nice venue.  Super hard to get into for an actual gig, but they have an open mic every week.  We had really positive feedback although I personally am pretty critical of my vocals (I'm also finally recovering from a head cold thing, which didn't help). But I wanted to share this video because it was SUPER fun.  It was an ACTUAL LEGIT STAGE with lights and monitors (although it was still very loud ambient noise up there even with the monitors).  The best part, though, is Matt got the crowd singing the backing vocals in the 2nd half of this song, which was awesome!! :D  Wanted to share.

Hi Rachel & Matt,

Good job on this one!. For me though it is tough to sort out what with the recording and that "ambient" crowd noise you mention. You guys are sounding better all the time and continuing to grow.

On this end I found the other song you posted to be possibly 2 -3 times more enjoyable. I really liked the harmony and overall delivery of "Closer to Fine" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmaPRI9Y-sM that you 2 did. The recording quality or at least the harmonies really came though on that one and crowd noise seemed lower and more conducive in showing off your talent.

Keep up the good sound and show.

Love this! :) A little more grit on the vocals would be the key to this song but given that you had cold, you did well. Guitar sounded amazing!

Oh goodness, this is an old thread!  Hahaha.  We've since formed a full band, released a full-length Alternative Rock album, been dating for 2.5 years....  ;) :D
