Gigger to Gigger

Over the next few weeks I will update the blog to cover many topics that I think are relevant to the hard working, gigging musician. Whether he/she is part of a band or just a solo artist.

Just a few things I hope to discuss and get feedback from are things like;

  • The common misconception that what we do isn't hard work or
  • How to put a monetary value on yourself (undercharging and overcharging) or
  • What's the best gear and equipment suitable to your needs or
  • Staying up to date with chart hits and their shelf life or
  • Dealing with people at their worst or
  • I find it hard.. Self Promotion
  • Originals versus Covers... Can a person do both??

Just the tip of the iceberg but hopefully it will get discussions started and feedback from other giggers out there!

 

 

Whatever Gets You Home

Driving home in the wee hours of Saturday night, coming home from a gig, we started thinking about all the other people, driving home in the winter weather, trying to rejoin their family and friends for Christmas. We had a minor top 30 hit with 'Whatever Gets You Home' back in 2008 and we thought it encompassed a lot of what we were thinking that night. So after a couple of hours sleep we met up and put this together, as best we could on short notice, just as a reminder of all those people travelling over the next few days! Thanks to Shane "The Weapon" Weldon on Bass, Maurice "The Space Cowboy" Mcilraith on guitar, "Magic" Mark O' Sullivan on percussion and Jason "All In" Woodard for thinking of it and putting it all together!
Happy Christmas
Safe Home
