After last week’s rather unsuccessful attempts at playing together using Zoom, we decided just to have a chat today – and it was much better! So nice to hear and see everyone. And we’re making plans to try to do some remote recording, which will be fab…..fingers crossed!
Room 10 are looking for more gigs this year – it’s what we like doing best!
Please contact us on our contacts page if you’d like to discuss costs etc – we might be cheaper than you think! (And if we’re not…maybe we can sort something out….)
We had a longer rehearsal tonight, as it’s the last before Sunday’s gig. We wanted to go over our entire set, and we’re doing lots of new material – it needed work!
Lovely Rich, the bassist, brought along some extra equipment to help me with the vocals, so I’ll be actually able to hear myself – what a novelty!
I really enjoyed myself tonight, so if you come along to the Warmley Jazz Club on Sunday afternoon, if you enjoy yourself a quarter as much as I did this evening, you’ll have a great time!
….but not me, I still sound like Popeye!
As band members have been away on holiday off and on over the last few weeks, and I’ve a long running cough and wheezing, so can’t sing, we’ve actually had to turn down a few offers of gigs recently….boo!
But we’ll definitely be up at running again at full strength soon, and already planning more performances!
Well, not entirely at full strength – Phil, our guitarist has had to leave us, due to family reasons, so we’re now only a nine piece band. We’re going to give that a go for a while, see how it works out for us, musically.
Mark is doing well in his Blind World Championship Sailing (thanks for the kind donations!) and will be back either next week or the following one – hurray!
