Club Goodman is a wonderful live space where the crew and the staff run a tight ship. The set up is always efficient and professional. Which is why once again Mr Punctual feels a deep sense of shame arriving at exactly the time soundcheck was ment to be finished. 😦 When will I learn?????
Anyway the other bands are very friendly and most of the acts feel the need to support one another as we take turns to perform.
Whilst watching the other bands play I was running through the possibilities for my set. With this I am often torn. On one hand. I want to sell records and logically thinking to play my strongest material of proven crowd pleasers is the way to do this. However I do have a number of new songs that are in need of further honing and by adding them to the live set I am hoping of progressing with them.
I choose on the whole with this occasion for the latter. (I would confess I haven`t always taken that route)
3 new songs and 2 from previous albums.
Following the show I find many albums do shift but most of the audience members are interested in picking up a copy of my new tune `As Stubborn as a Sandfly`. It`s a real confidence boost for me and a reminder to keep pushing my new material live. Even if I do only have a short time to play.
