We played at Marigolds in Darwen last night. Was a really good night, plenty of people down and everyone had a boogie and got involved which was nice.
However, something happened that I have never experienced before... We got asked to turn the BAND down.
Me and the lads all have at least ten years gigging experience and have played hundreds and hundreds of gigs over the years in various original bands, all over the UK and Europe. But this was only our second ever gig with our covers band. Granted, we aren't a quiet band, our drummer is a hard hitter, but you can only play at a relative volume to him!
Is this something I can expect at alot of venues we play as a covers band?
As I say we had a great time at Marigolds and I thank Nic and Liz for having us play we had a great time and would love to come back and play again :-) Infact we are at Darwen Live, just we are new to the cover band scene and we are curious as to venues expectations!
