Acoustic Night Numero Deux! 4 July

Posted in music, posts by Tim by Tim on July 11, 2009

Last Saturday was our second Acoustic Night – we had three performers. First up was Doug Gordon, a new performer full of charisma and smiles. He played mainly covers, and gave us a little preview of what Tony Farese will be playing tonight! Next were The Voltophonix, composed of Brandon and Tak. They play instrumental rock (and do it very well). Besides wowing us with the cool name, the two guitarists brought a laid-back, chill sound to the café. We were glad to have them and hopefully we’ll see them back again.

Last, but certainly not least, was Jeremy Hanlon (his father lent us the PA for our first show). Jeremy plays guitar and has been singing for quite awhile. He’s a student at Creativ Music, over by Park and Tilford. Jeremy has a great voice and character aplenty. He’s a good friend of mine and is, among other things, completely unable to cover a song without changing it. His cover of Britney Spear’s “One More Time” had the audience coincidentally roaring with laughter and tapping their feet. He also played “Kill the Zombies”, a song that has taken the internet by storm and was a fan favourite.

Most unfortunately, my camera’s battery wasn’t up to taking videos, so all I have are pictures. On the brighter side, Brandon and Tak brought along an audio-recorder for the show, so I have most of the show recorded and I’ll post the audio, along with the pictures, as soon as I can.

Speaking of music, don’t forget that we have another show tonight! Playing is Very Nice Treehouse, composed of Holly (our resident Kiwi) and her fiancé Scott, along with Tony Farese. The show runs 7-9, and we’re open till 10. See you there!

LOL,

Tim

PS – my camera’s battery is ready to go for tonight, so there will be video aplenty!
