Had a great night playing with The False Dots at "The Midland's Hotel" in Hendon

There where also Hamptons without Kenny and the bass player. But they've gone for it as if there is no tomorrow. They gave a great performance!

Then, Fumanchi gone on stage on their debut gig with three vocals, plenty of melodies and catchy lines. I really enjoyed their show.

The False Dots were the headliners on the night and I resumed service on the bass with a couple of acoustic numbers in between.

The venue was almost full. Not bad for a suburbian local event.

Last weekend was one of the busiest I've ever had. Starting on Friday with a day session in the studio followed by a silent disco until the early hours of Saturday. Another recording session on Saturday plus a gig in the evening with The False Dots @ The Chandos Arms. Sunday came, and there was snow everywhere! Some of the band members that I was recording that day didn't make it because of the snow. Day's should be made longer!

 

Dec. 2017

For the first time I got offered the job of operating a silent disco.
