Had a great gig in Bunbury last weekend for the Equity Music festival. Some great youth bands on show and a classy wrap up from seasoned professionals … The Times.
Third party Audio provided a full PA, lights and FOH mix for the night. We set up the JBL system with 4 subs and 2 mid/hi boxes to cover the 250 sized venue. The lights and fog set the stage for a great looking and sounding night.
First up was a young Bunbury band called Winter’s Savoiur who had a great mix of rock with spashings of almost techno grunge. They have a great stage presence, especially the wild antics of keyboard player Jorel. Check them out at https://www.facebook.com/winterssaviour/info. What a great way to kick off the night.
Second up was a fantastic duo called Maybe. Wow … what a surprise. These girls have a great and unique concept. Acoustic guitar, stomp box and great vocals. What a great segue between rock bands.
Save It For The Weekend showed their experience and put on a rockin’ set of originals and SIFTW blended covers. These guys show potential to do great things. They had the crowd rocking. They are soon to get back into The Shack to record their debut single. Backed up with live performances like this … they have the potential to do great things.
Wrapping up was the classy and experienced The Times. Massive vocals from Nerida and Jeanette who is a pleasure to mix live and in the studio. Joe had the Marshall cranking and Tony’s Hammond on the Door’s classic Light My Fire gets the chills running up your spine. These guys are real pros and a great time is guaranteed whenever they hit the stage.
The most important part of the night was the fundraising for 3 great special Olympians who are raising money to compete in Melbourne. This was a special night and a pleasure for Third Party Audio to be a part of it.
