Smithers Main Street Festival recap

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

The rain that was forecast held off for our set and it looked like people were diggin’ the music, which made it more fun for us, which made for a better performance, which made for people enjoying it more…   Some were taking photos and video with their phones and cameras.

Kevin Widen was the sound guy and MC.  It seems to me that he has a knack for making us feel comfortable when we’re setting up.  I felt relaxed and ready to rock as he introduced us.  Bonus: as we were about to play our last song, he told us that we had some extra time so we did two more songs, Jumpin’ Jack Flash and Who Do You Love.  That was fun.

Another bonus: the person who was organizing the live music at the street festival really liked what we did and will be organizing the music for the Smithers centennial celebrations next year and seems to be inclined to book us for that.  She already has our email addresses and I gave her our card after the set.  If we get hired for that one, it’ll be a paying gig.  I’d almost forgotten that there is such a thing.

Smithers Main Street Festival set list

I’ve decided to start posting our set lists for our gigs.  Sometimes it’ll be before the gig, sometimes after.  Sometimes I’ll probably forget.  Whatever.  This one is being posted a few days before the gig and, of course, is subject to revision.

  1. Jimmie Rodgers’ Last Blue Yodel
  2. Highway 49
  3. Get A Haircut
  4. Wild Horses
  5. I Ain’t Superstitious
  6. I Want to Break Free
  7. TNT
  8. Roadhouse Blues


Relay for Life 2012 set list

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Here’s what we played at the “Relay for Life” event in Smithers on May 26:

1. EBCB (because those are the first four notes)
2. Who Do You Love
3. All Right Now
4. Tie Your Mother Down
5. Bad Bad Boy
6. Bad to the Bone
7. Roadhouse Blues

EBCB was the only original song we did this time.  The set list was all about rockin’ the place.  I’m not sure that everyone there appreciated what we did but we did what we wanted to do and I’m good with that.
