Live music in 2021 - It's Zoom or nothing. Nice to see some old faces, have a bit of a chat and then play a couple of songs, which helps keep the rust at bay. My mission (I like missions) is to play just my own songs and see how long I can go without repeating any.
In 2021 I've played 17 live Zoom sessions

Zoom = see some faces, a change to the usual lockdown evening routine of food & TV and play a couple of songs. The new normal hey! For the second time, someone had left their mic on and was playing guitar (different song) over mine!!

  • Ghosts
  • Excuse me

A new Zoom night and some different faces. Made a bit of a hash of my last song, but ha ho, I can blame it on the vagaries of the Zoom sound!

  • On paper wings
  • Life's a race
My second outing as a Zoom MC. It's nice seeing and chatting to people on screen, but not sure about the variable sound quality of the musical performances. I may as well get used to it, as live music seems a long long way away.

  • Home
  • Wreckage
A new year and tough lockdown rules, so it's Zoom or nothing. Nice to see old faces and have a bit of a chat and then play a couple of songs, which helps keep the rust at bay. My 600th live performance since I started my open mic thing back on 30/01/13.
