Friday Nightshift

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!
