2 Shades performed a 2-hour set at Costa Coffee this week. It was a low-key affair with minimal kit – just my Washburn electro-acoustic guitar – but a great opportunity to try out some new songs and some we hadn’t performed for a while.
It was also a chance to see how well my Fishman Loudbox Mini acoustic guitar amplifier’s vocal channel performed. It was excellent and using the TC Helicon harmony voice processor in stereo mode, an Electro Harmonix B9 Organ pedal, and a Boo Tremolo pedal, there was sufficient variety in sounds to support the eclectic 31 -song programme which included standards, pop songs and a couple of blues-orientated songs.
New to our set was Homeward Bound, When I Fall in Love, Mountains of Mourne, Sixteen Tons, and Here Comes the Rain Again.
An enjoyable afternoon which we shall be repeating.
