I recently had a gig with Fern at 'La Raza' in Cambridge. Mark McGivern saw us playing at Relevant Records in Cambridge and asked if we're available to play at one of his nights - at La Raza!
There, half way through the set, Fern did her normal plug - "I have CD's and cards - Sam has some cards too! So if anyone is in need of a percussionist..." then suddenly 3 people in the crowd all perked up.
There was "I am actually!" and "Ooo - yeah me too!" - and then Mark came up and said he knew a band who was looking for someone just like me. Their name...
A week later, Mark put me in touch with Russell Murder & Anna Ballads (not their real surnames - that would be too perfect), and we arranged our first practice!
With a hop, skip and a few timing issues, we were sounding like a proper band! And we all loved it!
After just 2 practices we had our first gig - which was today (30/04/17) in Cambridge, and it went brilliantly! I can't wait to do more gigs with these 2 awesome people! :D
