Yesterday’s Didcot gig was fun but I’ve been to rehearsals with a bigger audience. That may not be strictly true but another baking hot day, no shelter for the audience (nice covered stage for the band though), a lunchtime slot and two major sporting events on TV in the afternoon and it was probably never going to be the recipe for a huge event.
Good sound engineer though and certainly the bass was easy to hear. I’m not used to being so loud – a combination of my amazing little Markbass Nano amp and the PA. The Nano is physically the smallest amp I’ve ever owned and far and away the loudest too. I love ‘class D’ amp technology! Anyway, we jazzed and that was another gig done (and the monthly jam at the Red Lion that evening, with the same rhythm section, had some really swinging moments).
