View Full Version : Casino gig in Camrose

Coming up this weekend, a Friday-Saturday gig at the Casino. Last time it was just Myra and I as a duo. This time, we have a drummer and a bass player, and both are really good. :bravo:

I am looking forward to getting some nice grooves happening. The blues tunes we practiced today sounded great! :D

I will be using my Mack amp, the Heatseeker 18 watt tube head and a 2x12 cabinet. My pedaltrain will have the SD-9, Arion SCH-1, Arion MOC-1, Digitech EX-7, Cool Cat Fuzz, BOSS DD-20 and either a 19 Sixty 3 boost pedal and/or a Cool Cat Drive. Oh, and a Jimi Henrix Octave Fuzz of course. :rockon:

I will try and get permission for taping one or two nights with my video camera. Could be fun to share, if it sounds decent!

Great! :AOK:

but who's singing?

Myra - she's short but has a huge voice.

Sounds sweet Robert! Keep us posted brother.

Yep, we're on tonight. I'm kinda excited! I will bring lots of gear and my video camera. I'll post whatever comes out of this weekend (as long as it's not too embarrassing)!

Last night's gig went good. I used the Cool Cat Drive most of the time. Man, I am starting to really dig this pedal.

My friend took pictures for a while but he got in trouble. They said NO PICTURES IN THE CASINO! They said I need to delete them from the camera.

Well here they are anyway... ;)

looking sharp there robert....i hope you did what the security asked and deleted those pics of your camera....after you saved them to your harddrive! :beer:

Looking good there Robert. Nice gigging clothes. Myra looks like she has been working out!

You are playing in a forest and they want you to delete the pictures? I think casino folks are off their rockers. You look very professional Roberto. Tell the bass player no Levis next time.

Thanks - and I'll post video clips from this gig later! I'm taping more tonight.

I'm confused :confused: ... how come the Bass player isn't lurking in the shadows?

September 20th, 2008, 09:07 PM
I recognize that maple neck on that guitar! Myra looks nicer with her hair grown out.

Just came back from the 2nd night. Better crowd tonight, and the band had some good moments. We have a different bass player and drummer now than earlier. Myra is into bodybuilding these days. She is all muscles now. Scary, but handy if we ever get in trouble with drunk idiots - we just send Myra on them! :D

Ahh, the recording sux. :mad:
The camera was too close to the PA speaker so there's clipping all over. I played like crap anyway, so I killed two birds anyway right there. Man I didn't know I suck this bad live! Scary! :(
