Well another week in the life of a busy touring take that tribute band… Last Friday Fake That were at ‘Sheffield City’ Hall doing a gig for the students celebrating their graduation ball, and to make it interesting we gave them the new show we had been working on for the past three weeks, and it looks like the hard work paid off, as it rocked the house… The students (or should we now say ‘Graduates’ were very up for it on the night, yes Sheffield is a buzzing and very cool city on a Friday night.
Saturday we were in Lancaster (up north again) at the ‘Grand Theatre’, and what a top night that was. They had put on a young female dance troupe as a support act, and boy they were good, it’s great to see young fresh talent getting a chance in a professional environment. Then it came to our turn and the audience went totally ballistic, I remember thinking (‘woo-hoo here we go’ …lol
I was doing the acts sound on the balcony along with the lighting guy, and at one point we both looked at each other and said ‘OMG the balcony is going to give way’… It was bad enough during the normal part of Fake That's set with all the girls bouncing around, screaming and singing, but when it came to the ‘Robbie’ section I thought ‘this is it now, we’re heading for the stalls’… But we survived, the balcony held up to the onslaught, and everyone had a very wild night, what a great venue, and a fantastic crowd!
Carl (The Manager)… more to come!!
