In finally got back to playing music again! Don Poole and I have been the foundation of bass and drums since 1979, but have not played together in an “official” band for 25 years. Ken Dutchess has been playing music all of that time in a bunch of bands. We have been practicing about once per week, and finally had our first show at IndieGamesCon on Oct. 10th, 2007.
It was a blast. Probably had an audience of about 120 people plus 40 people watching an Internet stream on Ustream.tv. People really seemed to like us, but I think they were being a little kind. I listened to the video streams, and we weren’t bad. I’m just not sure about being “good”.
Below is an embedded version of the Ustream. In this song, we have a guest singer, Norb, and guitar player, Justin Mette. Sure, there are a few clunkers in there, but I’m sure it sounded better live 🙂
Here are some photos on my Flickr account. It shows our studio and some photos Magnus Blikstad took at IGC.
