The strangest gig I ever did
In my late teens, I was in a number of bands - often 2 or 3 at the same time! Bass players were in sort supply...
One of the bands played a lot of gigs in a variety of places, but the strangest was an L shaped pub in Dover.
I will try to describe the set up.
The bar was along the right side of the upright.
The people filled the rest of the upright area.
The stage was on the upper part of the horizontal area.
Attached to the wall along the lower part of the horizontal area was a massive mirror.
The result was that the audience did not watch us, they watched our REFLECTIONS in the mirror. This was a very strange experience, especially at the end of a song where there would be a load of applause and cheering from people we could not directly see, just dim reflections in the mirror.
This was also the gig where 2 band members suddenly had to dash off to the toilet, leaving me and the singer on the stage. The result was a jazzy jam song - "Andy and Jim have gone to the toilet"...
