BREAKFAST at the Premier Inn is pretty good…then we go back to the room and I get some work done while Margaret packs up.
We check out at midday and go to meet my pal Neil at a nearby Costa. He was at the gig last night but we didn’t really get a chance for a blether.
On the road, we head for Sheffield and check in at a strange hotel – a Jonas – on one of Sheffield University’s campuses.
I’m off into Glasgow to play a session for Celtic Music Radio on Monday and have some work to do on Joe’s order of service when we get back tomorrow, so I spend a few hours editing the video blog/vlog of this trip…I’ll want to use it in my Wildcats’ livestream on Monday night. Need to get as much work done on it as possible before then.
Suddenly it’s time to head for the venue foor the private show…a complete venue – The Alder – has been taken over and there’s been acts on stage sing early afternoon .
We get a drink and some pizza and I’m just about to go and chill before my set when I’m asked to run the sound for the band that’s on before me. The PA isn’t bad, but there’s a real tangle of mics and channels…I manage two muddle through to everyone’s satisfaction.
Needless to say it’s a bit of a panic to load in, get set up and started with my own set the last of the night.
It goes really well though and the crowd is mad for it 🙂
