'Loaded Dice' show pics august 19
« on: August 20, 2006, 07:49:20 PM »
Last saturday we supported a local blues brothers band. This was our biggest audience to date. About a couple of 100 people. We played a one hour set. The guitar held up great and stayed in tune. The Mississippi Queens sounded excellent and were very feedback resistant. Enjoy the pics. (I'm the guy on the right playing the yellow guitar.)

Looking good there Ratty. I hope it went well and the audience enjoyed it. Was the group that you supported a different style of music?

Just a 4 piece ratty, or are there other band members that we couldn't see? I reckon (from looking at the choice of instruments) a saxophone or a pianist wouldn't go amiss - and you could all dress in sky blue suits, like the band at the end of back to the future :drink:

Thanks for the feedback guys. It's just the four of us. We do have ideas for doing something with horns. Maybe with the band we supported. That's a rhythm n' blues band with keys and horn section etc. They play mostly stuff from the Blues Brothers movie.

My guitar is an extremely modified Dean Psychobilly; MQ's, single master volume, graphite nut, TOM bridge with rolling saddles.

The venue (tent) wasn't full when we played but most of the audience was dancing. One of them was a rockabilly fan who sang along with most of the songs. It must have went well 'cause everyone there screamed for an encore.
