Hi guys hope you I’ve had a great Christmas and an even better new year,
It was quite a quiet Christmas for me which mainly consisted of mince pies and learning songs from a new band called The Quik Beats. We have had 7 hours of rehearsals so far and I have learnt of 38 new songs – its starting to come together quite well actually. They are tight mod band who are trying to authentically recreate the scene playing songs from some of the greats like the who, Spencer Davis Group, the animals etc. Rehearsals are taking shape and each rehearsal I seem to have one more organ solo which can’t be bad.
It’s quiet on the Hammond front two, my Hammond is getting a good bashing with the quik and I have cancelled all of my other commitments bar my pre-existing conversations with ex green head man (however getting them both together in the same room at the same time is almost impossible!).
The quik a great bunch of guys and I look forward to playing with them live on stage immensely. Our first gig is in Kettering and you can get any information they want about us from our website www.thequikbeats.com .
More articles on their way but in the meantime if you have any suggestions or questions or would like to know anything in particular about Hammond organs or Leslie cabinet please drop me a line 🙂
See you soon,
