23rd May 2014: Nightshift, at The Bee, Publika!
Andy Chong on hot guitar.
Jack on keys.
Emmanuel on hugs. Singing and hugs.
Steven Ramanado on the sound engineer booth.
Coked up bear up with a Coke.
Ian on bass.
Jared on drums.
It was a loungier sounding set, with the keyboard sound featuring prominently. I also think this is a very cool way to arrange keyboards.
Perks of a 135mm F1.8 prime lens – shallow depth of field and F1.8 to get a faster shutter speed in low light, not that this light was particularly low.
I also brought the Sony Carl Zeiss Planar T* 50mm F1.4 ZA SSM, for some mid-range compositioning.
That is one shiny bass.
In came a song request… for a birthday song!
And so, everybody sang along.
Emmanuel reached out…
…and got his shades.
Well no, not really, he put them on during the second set.
Then, another birthday…
…and a third birthday girl!
The last birthday song ended up in a little salsa.
I’m not in the habit of noting which songs bands cover since I don’t know most music of this decade, but I remember noting the medley that included Peaches & Herb – Reunited and Bruno Mars – Locked Out Of Heaven (and then continued to other songs, but I stopped recording by then.)
Steven told me to note Mokhtar’s snazzy sound console.
Mokhtar, sound guy. Sadly, I have no pictures of him drumming with Seven Collar T-Shirt – the earliest I have is from 2005 when he wasn’t the drummer anymore!
