I wanted to write on our Clinic and Concert from last night. Though this was not our first concert it was our first clinic, and though there were some minor issues with the acoustics in the venue and the weather hurt the attendance the event was an overall success.
The event was held at my church Living Hope Community Church and we divided the clinic and concert only by an hour so those that attended the clinic could stay to attend the concert without having to wait that long.
The clinic opened with the musicians playing “The Chicken” a great tune with an awesome groove.
This clinic was divided into four sections (though due to time we only did three)
Production and Genre Recording Concepts: By Ever Rodriguez
Chord Structures and Arranging: By Camilo “Milo” Velandia
Locking Drums and Bass, and Importance of Chord Structure for bass players: By Ezra Carias
Praise Team Development and Tricks for Sax Players: By Luis Alas (Not Shown)
The clinics taught were received well by the attendees and brought on many questions. So I would rate it with a major success.
The concert went awesome; though we had some issues with the acoustics the sound company handled it with true professionalism. Though to compensate they had to boost the sound it did drown the bouncing tones.
P2L performed virtually flawlessly and had a great time of worship with those attending. It’s sometimes difficult to define a performance as a performer because of the perception we have on stage is different than that of crowd. All the feedback, even from some of our friends that can be harsh (cause of their honesty) was that the band was super tight and impeccable.
Now we need to concentrate on recording our album and I will also begin work on my solo album.
We need to give some special thanks to our sponsors;
- Sam Ash Music
- Peace Love World
- Living Hope Community Church
- Elite Sound Production
And personally I need to give a special thanks to my wife as she has been the pillar and support for me in this endeavor. She was the one that motivated me to start this group and has endured never ending rehearsals and frustrations. I thank God everyday for bringing her into my life.
Well I will be hitting the studio soon and I promise to keep you all updated.
