    Wooohoooo!

    Played my first gig, Sat night, August 31st 2002 at 21:30! Bass for the "Black Purple Orchestra" supporting "Pseuonym". Venue Fred Zepplins here in Cork.

    On for 45 mins, great craic. 9 tunes(including the customary 'more' tune). Got to play through the other bands bass amp, monster of a thing, 5 feet tall but excellent sound...

    Once we ignored the feedback (sound setup there is really dodgy, although our cello was miked at the front) etc. it was cool out.

  3. Thats great, you'll always remember the first show for the mistakes, the nerves and why some people came up to you saying you were good. :p
