With the Guitar thread going on elsewhere I thought it might be a good time to bring up something that Emmett and I have been talking about - getting a Carpe band together at the RTT if there is enough interest. There seem to be lots of carpedians who play guitar or bass and so I expect there are others musically inclined who knock a tune out of other instruments or sing (and even drummers!). Any skill level or style will do. The pub that the hostel is attached to has a stage with PA and Maurice, the owner, has said we can use them. If the weather is good I was hoping to sort out a barbeque so we could have an open air gig too. Emmett and I can probably get enough instruments together (guitars, basses, drums, keyboards amps and what ever else you might need - let us know) so you don't need to strap your harp or double bass on the tank and bring it over - I expect most of you will bring your own organs. So, if enough people are up for it, we could sort a line up, suggest some tunes (so we can all practice!) and have a really good laugh as well as providing ample opportunity for non playing members to take the p*ss out of us!

So tell us what you think of the idea.

P.S. Just to get my excuse in early, regardless of what you may have read (Pict!!!!), I have not played with a band since 1986 and the most I do now is to tune and test the instruments I make - and that with difficulty!

4) Seriously, it's a good idea - but no "Irish Rover" please! Instrumentals? - easy Kerry polkas or slides?

5) I'm still a learner, far less a public player, led alone been in a band!!!

sounds a great idea

if we don't have to carry instruments even better.

not sure about songlist, but a round-the-room, add-a-verse session of "Well I woke up this morning, Got the TDM blues...etc etc" would be good !

count me in!

Ronnie Drew was a 'Dub' (from Dublin oddly enuf....) but he lived in my home town of Greystones, i drank in the same pub as him fer years and often seen him 'steamed up' in the Burnaby Bar and singing his gruff melodic tunes.
