    Happy Yess October 28th Gig.

    Hey Everyone,

    A mate and I are getting a band together to play a gig at the Happy Yess club in Darwin on the 28th of October this year, the band is going to be called The Sunshine Love Trio, and we are working up a set of Surf Rock and 60's Surf tunes, etc, to play at the gig, we've got a lady playing bass for us and my mate is going to see if another Darwin musician can play keyboards for us, there's also going to be some local Darwin Beat Poets performing their stuff too, I'm going to be playing my new Fender USA Strat, and my Theremin, should be a good night, will take my digital camera with me and see if I can get some good pics to post in this thread.

    Good stuff Doc, gives you a reason to start practising and learning new material.

    Haven't caught up on a lot of threads for a while and wondering if you have picked up your new Strat yet?

    Yep, I've finished paying-off my new Strat and I've got it here with me in my new flat, it sounds great through my Marshall amp.

    I agree, actually taking the pics is where I'm good at, with framing and etc, but I think getting them in focus doesn't appear to be my forte, so yes, I definitely have to do more work on that aspect of it for sure, might need to put in some serious time studying the user manual for my digital camera.

    Update:

    I just managed to get in contact with the local Darwin musician about playing keyboards with us for the October 28th gig, and he said that he's interested in doing it.

    Update 2:


    I'm going to be playing another gig at the Happy Yess club on the 17th of November this year, with a couple of mates of mine that I used to play with in a band called Cooperblack, this time we're going to be playing some songs from a Cooperblack album called "My Art Is Bleeding", should be a good gig.

    Unfortunately the November 17th gig ended up being cancelled, but the October 28th gig is still on, I just got back home after doing a full band-rehearsal at my mate's place, it went really well and we made some good progress on the songs we're going to be playing.

    Good to hear Doc. Hope it goes well for you.

    Cheers Wazkelly, I'm really psyched about it cause it's going to be the first proper gig I've ever played for quite a few years, been missing it a lot, I reckon the high you get from playing music onstage is probably the best ever high one can experience, I'm sure you know what I mean about that.
