A fantastic gig last night at Dirty Martinis George street Edinburgh for the Karmarockets, www.karmarocketsband.co.uk
Ian the sound engineer has been working with us on the on stage sound and been trying different techniques so that myself and Mazza the other signer get a decent volume in our monitors. Its always the case for many bands that signers have to fight against the band to be heard.. generally it starts ok then you find that as the night goes on it gets louder because of adrenaline, excitement etc. This means that as a singer you push yourself without knowing it, something that i have written about before.
There is many ways to combat this and I'm continually working on ways to ensure i don't blow my voice. Its always a strange crowd at these party nights. Its different because on a normal gig night the band is the focal point so the crowd will get more involved with the band. On party nights people are more involved with their night which is cool but I'm looking forward to getting back to the normal gigging night and some acoustic nights... tasty!
