Worst gig in a long time...

So we played in the finals, last Friday. And we were quite confident, because we had a blast the week before. But everything went wrong. A sound engineer who was too late, (he walked in, when we were almost finished!) cables that went loose, mics that were not working, etc.

For me, it was the worst gig in a very long time. I can't even remember the last time things went that bad. But on the upside: we won a trophy for the third place and 25 euros which we can spend in a music store. Ah well... next time better.

Against All Odds to play in Til Trofee finals

Our first show with Evelien was a success. A lot of our friends that came to see us were head banging and everyone seemed to enjoy our performance. Although we did not win from the other band Glorybox, we are still going to the finals because they are unable make it.
That officially makes us the underdog for the battle, but a really small chance is better than nothing at all. And besides, music is not a competition; it's not about winning, but about playing a gig.
Jans brother Richard filmed our entire show, last friday. You can watch the videos on the Against All Odds website.

Wilma leaves Bootleg

Sad news yesterday. Wilma decided to leave my cover band Bootleg because she didn't agree on the direction the band was going. Too bad, because she really has a great voice. We will keep on going with only four of us, but are all a little bit shocked by the sudden decision. Good luck with whatever you'll be doing, Wilma!
