Open Mic No 2 - Another step forward
« on: July 26, 2021, 01:56:38 pm »
So I did promise on my Road Case that I'd post some additional videos when they were posted by the OM organiser. This is our second OM and our first as three piece outfit (the Trio is currently retired...but still an active member of the band when we need it). I think we had four practice sessions together before this one but we were keen to play live again so went for it. I've just posted the new ones here (we also played Mystify again).

Apologies up front (as I know some do not like FB) but the organiser posts all his stuff there so the links will take you there!

August is probably going to be a quiet month due to holidays but we should be doing more in September.

I really enjoyed watching this Jason. Good to see your progress playing live, great that you also have a real drummer.

Looking forward to the next instalment.

Retrospective
Jason Collins Simon Clarke Lisa Marie Jones
Take a bow peeps !

Two great covers Jason and the band is looking good together. Makes a big difference look wise with  Lisa banging away compared to when it was just you and Simon. Both songs sounded tight but I like the way Simon and Lisa are looking around and keeping things in sync. Retrospective working in harmony.

Hey who'da thunk it way back, Proud of you Emperor !

Cheers

Well done Jason, I think you need to hit open mics outside your area soon. Oxfordshire is not that far from you so let me know when I should pop over on a show!

Keep on rockin' my friends

Good stuff, and good times! Everyone seems to be having fun and you got a nice bit of applause after the first track. That's what it's all about. So happy for you and your band. Really cool beans. Well done!

Thanks all for the feedback. It feels like we are slowly getting somewhere. We still make plenty of mistakes but as you can see we keep going and most of Joe Public don't seem to notice.

Good to be meeting more people who are into the same thing and we're making good contacts. We might not stretch to Oxford but we will hopefully be stretching into other venues in September having met a couple of other OM organisers who can support a band...Lisa is also looking at getting a Cajon which would work in smaller venues.

We have a weekly practice session in the studio for a couple of hours and we're probably up to about 10-11 songs we can play without issues with a few more to polish up so it's all coming on.

Bit late but just caught these two performances today and really enjoyed both mate.  Great playing and singing. I bet it felt good to be out playing again.   Hopefully it's not too long and you're out again.  I like these OM updates , they're cool so I hope you keep them coming.  8)
