Your original bands live!

Postby Doctor Doug » Sun Feb 14, 2016 11:55 pm

Those of you on here who play in original bands, I would LOVE to see live footage of your gigs!
Watching live bands is pretty much the only thing I use YouTube for and I thought it would be cool to see what people on here are doing!!

I used this section of the forum because I know that sometime we might not be using our Carvin/Kiesel guitars at a particular show (for shame)! I'm super guilty of this because I need a singlecut with a fat neck. Anyway...let's see the awesomeness!

Sounds cool.

My trio is actually about to play at a new local brewery that seems to regularly post videos of the shows on their FB, I'll definitely share whatever we can get.
Kiesel basses, lots of pedals, nothing wrong

Here's footage of the first three songs my band played this past Saturday.

Check out my super-douche-guitar trick at 8:48. I'm an idiot.lol

This is sort of depressing me.
Does no one on here play in original bands or is there just no footage....?

Not live footage, but it's original music. I'm the only member of the band so it's pretty tough to play live. :mrgreen:

Well if my lifetime best friend and clutch drummer (half Jack DeJohnette and half Bill Bruford) didn't suddenly get nailed down in Hawaii for another 1/2 a year minimum, I'd probably right now be getting on the cusp of live gigs with gobs and gobs of originals. His Japanese girlfriend was all set to come live in NYC with him as he moved back after a couple years of his being out on Oahu (now done w the job that pulled him out there and itchy for NYC and the Bronx; he's the guy who's tight with the Tempesta brothers, [White Z/John and Powerman 5k/Mikey] as well as Frankie Bello from Anthrax) . . . but her job situation stabilized, and he's so deeply in love (it's the first time I heard him talk marriage) he will NOT push her to just say to her "Hell with it, just move with me anyhow."

I'm thinking hard on what I want to do, but it's looking like I'm going to be raiding the Parsons Jazz program again for another drummer (which I did last band in 2008-9 I was in for both drums and bass, also 95% all original).
Carvin Weaponry:
1985 DC150K (koa) Stereo, M22N/M22SD w/black hardware.
1985 100 Watt X Amp 2 x 12 combo (XV212) upgraded w/ 2 Vintage 30's
...and other gear.

Dude, that was killer, great tone!
Also serves to further prove my theory that everybody on this forum plays better than me!! Good work!!
Hopefully you can get back to gigging originals soon! The world need more!

Angel can SING!

There's a bar in my city that has blues jams during the day and metal shows at night.... I should really join those jams on of these days...

I refuse to believe that no one on here is gigging original music! This is my last-ditch attempt to try and see some of it!

Here's another clip of me acting like an idiot.

Here's my old band Brainstorm from back in 1997. Yes, 1997, so sorry for the vid quality. These vids are our very first gig as a band with a drummer that had only been in for about 3 weeks. I'm 2nd from the left.

Thanks man. I appreciate it. I've played with some different people over the years since then. The problem is that Im pretty much a rhythm player, Nowadays everybody wants one or two lead players so it's hard finding a project. And putting together a cohesive project these days is like trying to heard cats.

That was awesome! You guys looked like you were having a shit-ton of fun up there! Also, can you teach me to sing harmonies like that? I usually sound like some sort of atonal farm-beast. You guys sound waaayyy cooler.

That's the last band I was in. Sorry, not live, but a couple pretty well made videos, I think. And original.
