Looks like fun! Cover band work it pretty relaxing and cool if you don't make it more than that.

Good job!

Hi Nigel,
Enjoyed your band's "Separate Ways" performance.
Nice shot of you playing your Yamaha keyboard. cool
Brought back fond memories of the fun we had playing together
at our Synthzone jam a few years ago.

Scott cool

You are right. Sandra loves to take on songs that are traditionally sung by male singers. She will just adjust the lyrics when needed to be from a woman's perspective. She also does a great version of Ozzie Osbourne's "Crazy Train" and AC/DC's "You Shook Me".

Thanks very much Scott. Yes that jam was great fun. Wow, I guess it must be about 8 years ago ... how time flies.

From the same gig the second half of "Long Train Running" by The Doobie Bros. This time I have switched from keyboard to lead guitar. Nothing like variety wink

Yep Russ, this is a very low key local bar gig. No pressure at all, we have fun and just hope the audience do too, but they seem to. Nowdays band work in bars is very low paid. We have to play for what a DJ would get and that doesn't go too far in a 6 piece band. It's a good thing we aren't trying to live off it.
