I’ve found it. My new passion.
Yes, yes playing for tired people while they’re running..(the power of music and motivation)….
On Sunday 26th May I had been asked to perform a covers set of 90mins playing to the runners (of Rock n Roll Marathon Liverpool) as they passed by through Liverpool City centre. I got to perform the fab Stage X which was a Stage Bus (a converted double decker bus) that caught runners just coming in from their 4mile windy, rainy stint down the prom.
I had some good fun choosing a set list for this. With the job of motivating people when they’re tired, making them smile and hopefully join in singing…, I DID play Eye of the Tiger and yes, people sang along…more please!
When the Event Manager, the Sound Engineers (and the sound) and the nearby deli/eatery (thank you Delifonseca Dockside!) were all amazing to deal with, I consider it a great gig 🙂
I hope to see you next year!
