Thursday nights 8pm is where we've been at. Coming up to our THIRTY EIGHTH SHOW. It's been a focus for us each week and a way to connect with people. I'm talking about our online shows via Stage It Dot Com. We also do a set every second Sunday morning at 7am to make it a Saturday night 10pm time in the UK and afternoon/evening in the USA.
We play for 50 minutes, using vibes, drums, keys, guitars, rhythm machine, percussion, on occasion some pre recorded backing grooves, melodica, autoharp and our voices. Stage It requires people to pay an admission fee and we have this set at $US5. You can pay more if you like.
Out 38th Show is 8pm AEST Thursday October 8th. October 8th link here.
Our next Saturday night Greenwich time/ Sunday morning Melbourne time show is October 10th-11th.
In some ways its been reflection in other ways a revision.
Playing songs we have rarely played live or not for many years.
Also wearing clothes and playing instruments that we would never take out of the compound.
Its a live set, we dont record it and there is no way to watch it back.
Here are some photos from over the last few months. Mostly taken by Bob Osborne from Salford, Mark O'Brien from Sydney, Trish from Adelaide, Richard Watters from up Yarrawonga way, Ursula from Brisbane and a few others. Thanks to you all!
