Another Opera Mash up
sitting here fiercely pounding away at the public library due to a continued lack of computer access.
Last saturday was another of the infamous opera mash ups and it was a delightful mess heled at the famous “Churchills Hideaway” I’ve been promised both pics & video that I will post as soon as I get it (hint hint to my facebook friends) as it was a unique ensamble.
It was a 10 piece band consisting of myself on bass
gregg on guitar in standard tuning
randy guitar and effects in drop c#
maxwell ames (of restless spirits alumni) on drums
billy on miscellanious stuff
3 other guys doing weird things with stuff
josh on the german speak and say and toys
a fantastic flautist who’s name escapes me
jesus fish on d# tuned guitar and keyboards
and at least somebody else.
Shu luckily was also able to make it and she had a great time as well as it is rare as an eclipse that we can get out and away from the kids. I’d love to really lock in a “core” group of people and really try to develop the potential of the whole Opera Mash Up concept beyond that of “noisy jam band” but I’ll take whatever gigs I can get at this point.
In other news I’m still uneployed and looking at being $900 bucks shy of bills this month, but the aforementioned Maxwell Ames promised me an old PC to use which will be much appreciated.
Wish me luck Lummoxcateers!
