I thought I’d write a blog, since the sound on my computer is mysteriously not working and that pretty much rules out any Youtube adventures.
We played some music tonight for a “Rock Eucharist” at a church here in Toronto where they feature the music of artists who aren’t necessarily in the “Christian” genre. We got invited to play because of our reputation for playing the beautiful music of Bruce Cockburn. Tonight’s Eucharist featured his songs entirely.
I am eager to play again at Church of the Redeemer because of it’s full and complimentary sound. Even with only one house speaker we were able to create a lush and dynamic sound in the room.
Next week we are intending to get back to the drawing board and begin focusing our efforts on some new material. I personally feel like we have, not only new tunes to work on but older tunes to revisit and possibly rearrange.
The other two shows this week were also great, the first was opening for Winnipeg’s; The Duhks. It was a great honor to share the stage with such an accomplished band. It was one of the best show I’ve seen in a long time. The Duhks energy, spirit, and groove uplift their audiences to great heights. I wish they would play Toronto more often.
Our Sage West gig was a great and intimate experience as well, where as the featured act for the night, we explored a lot of older material that we haven’t played for some time. We also played some of the Cockburn material we’ve been working on. We hope to return to Sage West soon, the food and the vibe there are fantastic.
over and out,
