Rocking at the Casino

Our band played at the casino this weekend. The music we played is mostly similar to the material Myra and I do as a duo, but with a drummer and bass player it sounds better.

We played both Friday and Saturday night. The first night had less people, but people seemed to enjoy our music. On Saturday night, there was a pretty good crowd and they liked us. As a band, we always play better when the crowd response is good.

I used my Heatseeker 18 watt tube head with a 2 x 12 speaker cabinet. I brought my Pedaltrain 2 loaded with some pedals. I learned that my Cool Cat Drive is an excellent choice for my amp. I set it to be "semi-dirty", with the gain halfway up. Then I use rolled down the tone knob a bit for cleaner tones. Worked very well for the material we do. I tried the Cool Cat Fuzz on a few tunes, but it didn't quite fit into the music we do. The Maxon SD-9 always works great too for rockier and bluesier material, so I ended up using that one a lot too.

I also took some video footage of our gig. I put up my video camera on a tripod at the corner of the stage. The camera angle wasn't that great, but hopefully the sound is okay. I'll have to go through it and see if I can get together a few video clips for you to take a look at. With several hours of video footage, there must be at least a few moments that sound okay! At least, that's what I'm hoping...
