My other other band, "After Hours Blues Machine" had a successful gig last night at Redhouse Studios in Walnut Creek. It was a showcase for half a dozen bands and things went pretty well. We did a short set with some straight ahead rock songs, and hopefully it came across with a lot of energy. I think things sounded pretty good. There were a couple of minor mistakes, but I'm not sure how obvious they were to the audience.
Here are some iPhone videos via YouTube:
And here are a couple of MP3 files from our rehearsals as well as a live version of Black Magic Woman / Sweet Jane recorded with a portable Tascam recorder:
It's been great playing together with Dave, Jeff and Marc at Redhouse. And we were fortunate to have Assaf sit in on keyboards with just a few rehearsals.
If you're in the east bay area, I highly recommend Redhouse Studios' workshops. They've got a wide range of workshops they run for rock, jazz, Beatles, Stones, metal and more as well as lessons and regular concerts. I'm gonna miss this place.
