Something new this weekend.
Imagine my surprise Thursday when I showed up at church band practice only to find out that we weren’t going to have a keyboard player Sunday.
I had just mentioned not that long ago that I was using a lighter setup at church than what I use on the Biscuit gigs. But with no keyboards on Sunday I ended up taking my full gig rig, sans amplifier (the Blues Deluxe Reissue I use there belongs to the church).
The Sunday morning practice went well but the first service music was a train wreck. ‘Nuff said there. Second service went much better.
Will I use the full rig again at church? Don’t know just yet. We pretty much always have a keyboard player so it’s not like I need it to broaden the sound.
The band will be playing twice this coming Saturday. Early afternoon we’re playing at a private party for a couple of hours. Later on (5-9) we play the Saturday Deck Party at the New Bern Hilton. These are always fun, and this will probably be our last one this summer.
All In All
That’s it for now. More later.
