16th May 2014: Nightshift, at Phat Barrels, Publika.
Yes, the band is named after The Commodores’ song, Nightshift, and it could be expected that their songs would follow a similar vein.
Andy Chong on guitar, with searing licks and guitar solos.
What bassist Ian is doing with a drumstick I’ll never know.
Drummer Jared Cheow. To this day I cannot get used to seeing him being skinny.
Emmanuel on vocals.
Jack on keys.
I wonder if there are keyboards that are able to have different tones when played with different hands – where one hand would wear a glove that would insulate from electricity, and the keyboardist would conduct a low-powered circuit when touching the keys with bare hands. Kind of like how touching a theremin’s volume antenna would mute it. Thus you could program the keyboard so that the gloved hand could play a organ-like patch, while the bare, grounded hand could play a hot lead solo patch. That way keyboardists might get away with one keyboard and two simultaneous sounds.
One of many covers was that of Jamiroquai – Love Fool. Been a while since I’ve heard anyone cover that!
