This past Friday was the 1st gig with my new U2 Tribute band, The Electric Co. We got the middle slot of a 3 band gig at the Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa, CA. This is the first time that I have played this venue. Rolling up it was cool to see our name on the marquee. The stage was decent sized, and they had a pretty good PA and a sound guy! No humping a PA for me tonight. I'm finishing up my setup dance. My rig was an Ampeg PF800 with GED 2112 Pre amp, PF 210HE and PF 115HE. I got to use my new Sansamp YYZ pedal. It added the right amount of growl to my tone (I can't recommend this pedal enough). I used my Geddy Lee bass for a few songs and then switched to my Honeyburst Precision with Geddy neck for the rest of the set. Lighting wasn't that great so I don't have too many photos from the gig. I am working to get some video and see what I can pull from it. This was our guitarist's first gig ever. He did a great job and even plays the keyboard parts during New Year's Day. These guys are great to play with. We all stay in our sonic spaces so everyone shines. A couple of my friends that have seen me in other bands said I never sounded better. We played for an hour and had a pretty good crowd toward the end. We got a lot of compliments on our sound. All in all it was a pretty good night. We are just getting started and already have a line on two or three gigs. Sorry, no food pics, I ate when I got home.
