I'm still listening to ^that show, pulling apart what went wrong on the frets and with lyrics and harmonies and stuff. Sorry if the loud patrons are a little annoying, but damn that recording ain't half bad despite.

Here's a song written primarily by Colleen, if I'm not mistaken, performed by Justin Colleen & I a couple years back in RI.

...I regret to report that I severly botched the "Fearless" lyrics. It was our first time playing it, and I was mistaken about having a handle on them words. I studied up & know 'em now FWIW! Also, it's really about set one IMO ... we were feeling really smooth and good. :D

Bold titles are original. Weirder titles are mine, normaler ones are Justin and/or Colleen's.

6/14 11 am solo gig @ car show in NK RI

Wrote out setlist, inspired by band gig two days prior. Went heavy on originals. Followed pre-written setlist to the tee once onstage.

Goin Up To NH Maybe Goin up to VT
Lazybones (*Mercer/Carmichael)
Song of Hopeful Encouragement

I count fifteen tunes, six originals - 40%. Not bad I guess. Felt like a courageous ratio at the time.

Hosemasterflex Performs! (free show DL 6/17/15)

Postby hosemasterflex » Sun Jun 28, 2015 3:44 am

Played a mid-week bar gig in Jamaica Plain, Boston. I think it was Thursday, right? 6/17 was Wednesday: it was Wednesday.

We did all originals at this gig (we're getting cocky!), until the encore where we had this weird moment of only being able to think of two songs we know. I wonder if there's something to that; whatever. We did Scarlet cuz we do a lot of harmonies.

It wasn't our greatest show, but it was okay ... mainly it was crazy because we did all originals. The Tavern show a few posts ago was a better listen IMO. Let me know if anyone wants that recording, that one's cool.

At the Midway, out of 19 songs performed, we did one cover (Dead), five of my songs*, and thirteen songs by Justin &/or Colleen. Justin and I switch between guitar & bass throughout the show these days. I'm on bass for seven tunes, guitar on 12 I think it is.

Thanks, that recording really came out good, eh? I almost played it right too. People are laughing like it was profitable or something, what a fun listen. Makes me want to practice it again.

The Grass Gypsys 3/17/16 Boston

Postby hosemasterflex » Sun Apr 10, 2016 3:18 am

So on St Patrick's Day, we played a single long set @ The Milky Way, and this show has a few nice things goin for it. One, the sound is really really good, the recording's sweet, drums were mic'd up and there was a proper soundman. Two, the crowd was great. Three, our original drummer filled in for John who was away, and that guy is just a special kind of drummer that I love to hear play.

So I'm sharing this one, hope you enjoy, lots of Irish stuff. Original songs are notated with *Kevin Silvia or **Justin/Colleen Kleya:

Original songs are notated with *Kevin Silvia or **Justin/Colleen Kleya, says it in there somewhere. You must have had obstructed view during that part, or had a talker in your row, I'm sure. Doesn't explain the shouting, but I can't carry the entire weight of it all now, can I.
