Something completely different...Russ's 40th
I found out after taking the booking that Russ was into his Metal and Rock. Not exactly what I'm used to playing but I was up for the challenge...a fast track self administered course in the more popular side of Metal was required! His lovely other half and his son guided me with a few of Russ' favorites and the rest I picked up from the interweb. What I thought might be a difficult gig turned out to be quite the opposite. A gnarly brew of heavy tracks from Black Sabbath, ACDC, Metallica, Limp Biscuit sat beside more popular bands like Kings of Leon and Foo Fighters. It worked really well and the night was a success and I was very pleased with the feedback I received...
"Simon went the extra mile... It was my surprise 40th, and I have an atypical taste in music: my son and my wife (the devious people) supplied him with a playlist and Simon went as far as to download the music! He helped make it a night I will never forget! Aside from that, I have been to several events where he has supplied the entertainment and I have always been impressed by the level of his professionalism and expertise. I can't recommend him highly enough. Friendly, efficient, accommodating, top notch equipment and understands his customers' needs."
