It's getting on for two years since I started drumming with Secret Bass. It's fun to just play, but there comes a point where you need to get out and perform. I missed at least one opportunity for this due to other commitments, but last Sunday I remedied that. We performed at the village open day in Little Berkhamstead, just up the road from where we practice. This involved lots of rehearsals with varying sub-sets of the perfromers where we honed our performance and worked out a set. On the day it went pretty well, apart from me fluffing some moves and our glorious leader getting carried away with soloing ;) The small audience seemed to enjoy it. We have another gig for next Sunday at Hertford Fun day.
Here are some pictures of our performance.
Although I've been playing music for most of my life I have made very few public performances. There were a few things at school and when I was learning classical guitar. I regret that I never got into any bands, but I'm trying to make up for some lost time now. For a start I plan to do some recording at home to build my skills. If I can find some outlets for some performance then that will be a bonus. I'm just not sure I would be up to playing solo just yet. Just don't call it a mid-life crisis ;)
