First "name" support gig


Aidan

Recommended Posts

Some of you were kind enough to cop an earful of the Blues record I played on at the end of the year. The guy who put it together called me last night to ask if I would play keys on one of the first gigs to promote it. We'll be opening for Hue & Cry.

 

I know this is meat and drink to many of you on here, but it's my first experience of opening for a "name" act so I'm pretty stoked about it. It kind of feels like my musical career is getting somewhere towards where, in truth, it probably should have been a couple of decades ago but for first-wifely hostility.

 

I've got a couple new projects of my own on the boil and have just started working with a great jazz quartet too (audio on SP), and I have a feeling 2014 is going to be a good one for me, musically speaking. Hope it's as positive for all of you here, too!

Good for you, theres aways certain gigs that really are an event changing part of your career, wether its playing with somebody well known, or playing a venue that's well known, whatever, its a real confidence booster, cause' theres enough stuff out there to bring us back down again....

Very cool....it is always a great feeling. I done many times and it never gets old. I just opened for Styx last Saturday night and it was awesome!

That is exciting. One of the tribute bands I played in a few years back got to do do a few opening shows at one theatre, we opened on different occassions for Bret Michaels, Eddie Money, and Zebra.
