Saturday night at the ol’ JC….yes Jazz Cafe was sold out for our first gig of the year, everyone packed in like sardines. It was mighty eventful with some ghosts in the machine tech-wise, Spiller’s Ma turning 60 (and the whole venue singing to her), a random drunk woman rushing the stage (which took several people and a man in a hi-vis jacket to escort her to a safe distance away from us), new bass player Cam popping his MG gigging cherry with his new theme tune crowd singalong ‘Neeewww Boooyyy’ and an overall really joyous uplifting vibe in the whole venue. Because of the time lost we had to cut 2 of the encore songs (Get a High & Rolling in the Deep) which was a bit of a shame and I battled with my cold right to the end, cracking here and there – my voice just about held out – but it didn’t matter, the evening was a roaring triumph! MG 2.0 fully rebooted and optimized.
Next up Amsterdam – PARADISO we are coming for you!!!
