On The Road

I’ve done quit a few gigs with The Amygdaloids as their bass payer since joining them a few months ago, but a recent trip to Montreal was my first road gig. The band was asked to headline the World Congress on Brain, Emotions and Behavior which took place this year at the Palais des congrès de Montréal. All expenses were paid, so of course I flew up a day early and seen the sights and explored the city as best I could before the rest of the band flew in the following day. The second day we had rehearsal that evening and the following night was the main show. All time in-between was spent walking around Old Montreal. The gig itself went great and we were asked back to perform again the following year. The good news is that next year it’s being held in Brazil. Did I luck out joining this band at the right time or what? The whole trip was a lot of fun and I look forward to many more road gigs. I’ve posted some photos below.

I was asked to join New York Neuroscience rock band The Amygdaloids as their bass player recently. I had been telling some friends that I really missed playing the bass so when the opportunity arose I took it. We had our first gig last night and it went really well. Unlike Supersmall, it’s nice to be able to just turn up, plug in my instrument and play. No songwriting, scheduling gigs or being the front man-stress. I couldn’t ask for a better gig. Also, it’s fun.
