I would say it's "new" but a few of us have been working on getting it off the ground for almost 2 years now.  retard

We finally have all the right players, we're working the final mixes for an EP, have a set is locked down, and we're scheduled to perform our first shows in the coming months. I'm not sure which genre we would fit in. Rock, Prog, Alt...a bit of everything? It's been a real ride to get to this point, yet now it's time to get a bit of promotion going with social media. We've put a couple songs that are pretty close to their final mix online for listening...

So go listen!  nod

I just wanted to say thanks to those here checking our pages out...we get stats on were our views are refered from. paranoid  There was a wee bit more interest than I suspected, and I'm a bit shameless in trying to get an extra nibble or two....so this is also an AAR of sorts.

Atara finally had our first show at a small but fairly popular local venue and it went off well enough.

The venue had a small stage and we had too much gear. The stage created low end reverb like I've never heard before....it sounded like we were riding a locomotive through a mountain tunnel on stage, but thankfully the front of house sound was good and the patrons didn't get blasted through the back wall. Personally I had a few issues. I didn't eat well that day and didn't have a chance to get some bananas for the potassium...so add a bit of adrenaline and it was hand cramp city about 1/2 way through our set. It didn't shut me down, but boy it was tough to play with any finesse. I hope I didn't sound as stiff as I felt it did.

All that said, we really had the crowds attention and received great feedback through the set. The nicest part was that not a soul was sitting in the bar room during our set but were out front of the stage....awesome feeling considering very few had ever heard a single song of ours. The only ones I noticed walking out was the following band when we announced two songs left. The crowd was more attentive to this than anything I've ever been a part of before.

We received plenty of complements after the set from other bands on the bill, people we know (who we've kept the music mostly under wraps from), and complete strangers. It sure was nice to get the ego payoff after putting in so much work for the past two years. I'm not saying anyone was gushing, but just to have someone take the time to stop me and simply say that they enjoyed what we did is a good feeling.

I'm a happy bassist and things are looking up as we also were able to get a couple additional shows tentatively set up in the near future with at other regional venues.

Our next show is about a month away and we're hoping to get it on video I'll be able to share.  thumbsup
