Feedback from the lovely Lynne at last Saturday’s gig:
“It was a fantastic evening and so many people commented on how much they enjoyed Second City Soul. Everyone thought you were brilliant as I knew they would.”
We’re looking forward to getting back to the Roadhouse in Birmingham for a full gig on the 24th February and are just in the process of looking into support acts so we can provide the best part of 3 hours of live music for our paying guests. We have a couple of people in mind, and they are quality. Keep in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter for further updates, and no doubt a new Blog will keep you up to date too.
So what else is going on…well our new Drummer is settling in nicely. We had our first rehearsal this week with him and it was great. Our old drummer Tim has more than ably stepped in to cover our gigs till the new Drummer is ready to unleash. We had our first wedding gig last week at the stunning Priest House venue in Castle Donnington. The happy couple, Stu & Nicky were the perfect clients and very complimentary about the band and further gigs are already pencilled in to the diary from other guests.
We’re planning to record new demo over the next month or so, to reflect the changes in line up this year. It also keeps things fresh, and reflective of the line up we have. Band always evolve with new members, fresh ideas and different playing styles so it’s important that our clients get to hear what the band actually sounds like. It’s not going to be immediate as we want our new additions to settle a little, but certainly within the next few months.
The recording process is a little odd though as we all like to record live, but this can be a tricky thing to do when you don’t have Beyonce’s financial resources! It’s more cost effective to record a track at a time, and we have members of the band who could get a decent result ‘in-house’ but again, its not reflective of how the band sounds live. We don’t like smoke and mirrors in this band, what you hear is what you get. So with all this considered, we are looking to get a day in a studio and get some funk down!
Right, off to listen to some new tracks were working on so till next time….Stay Funky
