What a great 2 days we had last week with The Beards on the Scottish dates of their first ever European tour. 4 great guys, supported by a great crew as well. Thankfully 2 of the crew were also beardless making myself feel a little less inadequate in the facial hair stakes.
Many thanks to Regular Music for the support slots, hopefully we showed them what we bring to the table for future work together.
Going with the crowd reaction on both dates we seemed to go do very well indeed, which after several months rehearsing the new material for the new album was a big relief. We both felt the new music is ready to unleash to the public now and last week the crowd at both gigs blew us away. A great big smile was there on my face both dates. From the dancers in Edinburgh to the whoops & hollers in Glasgow to the jibes about 'no beard' from both, absolutely brilliant....love the 'more cowbell' shouts as well, DAMN RIGHT !!!!
So tonight back to rehearsing, and hopefully listening to the final master of the album material. A few wee tweaks were done last week which have been listened to through headphones and sound exactly what was asked. So tonight, putting through the huge speakers and giving it some big noise in the studio. Anything needing done will be found for sure tonight but very hopeful we may have some definitive dates for album release very soon.
News of lots of dates coming real soon.
Thanks to all who helped make last weeks gigs give us our much needed gig fix the boost we needed.
Keepin' it DIxie
