So my band Maiden May had out first gig last night (31st May) and it went off!! We played seven songs for a 45 minute set, crowd wasn’t massive, probably around 30 or 40 and they mostly just observed but hey, first show, gotta start somewhere. Unfortunately, I forgot my earplugs and it was rather loud on stage so my right ear is bit sore at the moment (won’t make that mistake again). We have another gig booked for the 28th of June at a music studio, that one is probably gonna be a lower key gig I’d imagine.
Anyway, here’s a couple photos:
Me behind the kit (obviously). The kit was a house kit, all bands had to provide cymbals, snare and pedals. I used my metal Rockstar snare, Sabian HHX hats + crashes and my Carmine Appice sig. ride (thought I’d bring out the top brass for the occasion, I’ll be using my not-so-high end set for most gigs). Pedal I used was a Dixon.
Full band shot. There were better photos of the whole band but I am currently writing this post late at night and there are 700+ photos that I can’t be stuffed going through at the moment lol. I’ll post more tomorrow or something.
Finally, I posted this in another thread, but here’s a link to a recording of the song we closed our set with last night. If you got a sec, give it a listen and tell me what you reckon, download it for free too if ya like it. I mixed this song too, so feel free to let me know how I did
