Busy busy lives

It has been a busy week for the guild. Last Friday night Mak Wolven and R.C. Henry joined Jaap and myself at Radio West. Mak and Ric spontaneously worked out a song together, as well as playing solo on Stork on Air. Before we got interviewed and stuff there was a death metal band playing, so really the contrast couldnt have been much bigger! It was a nice chance for us to let people know about whats going on and what will be coming up next year, and we got some nice recordings from the studio.

On Sunday night was Lokaal Vredebreuk as usual, with an amount of stress having occured on the Saturday due to one of the artists calling off. Luckily Aletta was kind enough to arrange for some of her friends to come and take her place, and they were fantastic, or so I heard from Jaap. This week I didnt get to see any of the gig, as I had a gig myself in Delft. So as Jaap had to work, I went first to Lokaal, set up the gear, told everyone what was going on, and just as the music began Dominic my bass player picked me up and we sped off to Delft to play a short set in Cafe Vlaanderen. Jaap finished work at 10pm then went to the venue to round off the evening. We know that this is not the last time theres going to be some sort of conflict of events, so we are on the lookout for a couple of people who will supervize the evenings every once in a while. If you are interested please send us an email. It requires being a little early to the gig, explaining to the artists whats going on, setting up the microphones and stuff, keeping an "ear" on the sound and basically making sure the evening runs smoothly. We would just like to know that we can still get away for a weekend every now and then, and not have to turn down other gigs happening at the same time. The guild is growing so fast, so if you want to get more involved here is your chance!
