Wednesday was a fun day of music. First up was a day time gig at UNSW in Kensington in their beer garden. I had never been there before and it was great to rock up to be able to play in such a great outside atmosphere and have Zac looking after the sound so well.
Then it was time to pick up Si Rippingale and his double bass for our gig at the Sando Upstairs band room. It was great to have such a relaxed and intimate night of music and again have a great sound engineer, Jay, who accommodated all our line up changes so happily. The line up was a treat with Simon Cant singing a really excellent and inspiring set of songs that he really connected to and shared with the audience. Lenni Munro was joined by Michael Griffiths to play her beautiful songs, and they were performed with confidence, commitment and a great combination of Michael’s keys and harmonies.
Lenni and Michael (for a number of songs), then joined Si Rippingale, Nadene Pita and Stephen Ralph and I for a free flowing set of my songs played with this line up for the first time. It flew by and it was so awesome to hear the strings and harmonies come together in so many different ways. Hopefully we can do it again together soon…perhaps at the Rock Surfers Launch in early April.
