I thoroughly enjoyed my solo gig at the Nivara Lounge in Hamilton and, most importantly, seeing my friends who came to support me – thank you all! This was my first live outing of the Kemper Profiling Amp and the results are encouraging. (Kemper website). I think I will really enjoy taking my produced studio sound to live venues. In case you don’t know, Nivara Lounge is a vibrant, atmospheric music club catering to all sorts of musical tastes ranging from very loud punk, rock and dance to quieter jazz, folk and world music – all of it interesting and often experimental. Here is a video clip from the performance and some photos. The tune is Cissy Strut (The Meters), but I am using chord changes devised by John Scofield.
