Scrump so how did your St. Pats Day gig go? (28) RE: so how did your St. Pats Day gig go? 20 Mar 07


Ours was also in a pub on Saturday night, and went extremely well, in spite of sound problems early on. I was personally a little p***ed off at the start because I was trying to play/sing while they were sorting the problems out all round me, which is very off-putting. I could have waited but decided we were there to do a job and got on with it.

But the main thing was that the punters really seemed to enjoy it and didn't want us to stop. We didn't finish till well after 11:30pm, having performed several requests, both for stuff we hadn't done (luckily we were able to satisfy them all) and 'repeats' of songs we'd done earlier on. I was pretty knackered by the end, having been performing non-stop for well over 3 hours on only 2 pints of Guinness :-), and the ambient noise levels in the pub were high making it sometimes difficult to hear ourselves even with help of the monitors.

The landlady was also dead pleased and we'll be back there before long :-)

OP: stage? dressing room area? Luxury! :-)

(I'm glad we didn't have to contend with the prat in the jockstrap though! :-))
