Brewing up a storm

The Marketing-tings play Trowse Ski club.

Last night the third Novemberfest, Virgin Money’s annual brew-your-own beer competition, took place in the beautiful, traditional surroundings of Trowse Ski Club (no, really). This year the live music was supplied by Marketing’s finest band, The Marketing-tings, for whom I play bass guitar and sing falsetto (often at the same time – that’s talent for you). Me and my band mates, Jenny (vocals), James (lead guitar), Rich (Rhythm Guitar) and Simon (Drums) whipped up a dancehall frenzy that made we wonder if we were going to create on avalanche outside (if it’s possible to create an avalanche on a dry ski slope). It seemed to go really well, with much clapping, whoopin’ and a-hollerin’ from the audience at the end.

UPDATE: My colleague Ellie sent me a selection of pics of the Marketing-tings in full flight. From left: James, Jenny, Simon (on the drums behind Jenny) and my good self. Not pictured: Rich on guitar on the extreme left (so extreme he’s out of the picture). Oh, and here’s the set list (below).

Fantastic gig Steve and co! Awesome sounds – all those rehearsals paid off! And I’m not just saying that coz I’m tapping your lead singer! :)
