I had a bit of a change of role yesterday in musical terms. There is a local band who needed a stand-in sound man to cover the mixing of their live sound. I got the call-up and took myself along to a practice session last night. It’s the first time I’ve mixed a ‘live’ band, as opposed to doing recording sessions, so it was a good bit of experience, and plenty of fun.
They played a range of songs from the 50’s through to the 00’s; rock and pop through to more folky material, so there was plenty of musical interest as well as enough changes to keep my fingers busy on the board. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and hope to do it again before too long.
