Tommy Flynn’s Gig – 1st October 2010

DonkeyBox flyerWell, this time it didn’t take us 4 whole months to get back on the road, it only took us 2 and a half instead! This sort of irregular gig appearances is totally abysmal given our history of regular gigging.

We were unlucky in some ways because of an earlier gig that was cancelled in September. Nonetheless we were back on the gig scene much much sooner than last time.

Our third ONLY gig of 2010 was easily the best gig we have played this year and indeed in some time. We were a bit nervous no doubt it. Some bad comments about the pub in an online guide to pubs prevented some of our friends coming along, and after sound check it was looking like a sort of empty venue we were going to play at.

But this was not going to make any difference to us, we were going to give it a massive performance anyway.

But, lo and behold suddenly loads of Atul’s friends turned up and other people turned up too. The place was packed and there was even a couple dancing in front of the stage as we opened up with our new set opener “The Moment”.

As we got photographed while we played, we churned out our set confidently; from The Moment, Deep Blue Sea, Crap Day, Out of Power, Pointless, Terminator 2 theme and then our finale that never can disappoint…. The Score.

The sound on the night was totally amazing as well, with crystal clear clarity in guitars, bass and vocals we have never sounded so gorgeously clean and accessible. Thanks a lot to Mark Williams, the sound dude on the night.

Our next gig is in just over 2 months time in Rochdale, we are gigging more and more often now and this is an amazing thing. Love you friends 🙂
