BLOG Entry - 2008 November (Monday 3rd Cup Day)

Fancy a nation having a public holiday for a horse race (Melbourne Cup)....well Im not complaining. I have been busily getting all my music stuff in order and also just got a new Apple iMac 24inch computer which is awesome. (Im hoping this will allow me to do even better mixing and video editing for future additions to this page).

​

On the music front Contraband has been signed by agent UPTEMPO so we are hoping to start to get some gigs from them shortly. Additionally we have a gig at Pugg Mahones next Saturday night (in Bendigo) which should be fun. We are also having a rehearsal on Friday to try out 4 new songs : “I kissed a girl”, “Love rears its ugly head”, “Big girls are beautiful”, “All summer long”. So I’ve been busily practicing those.

​

As far as other bands are concerned, I have resigned from Fighting For Friday due to a lack of available time on my part. Also one of the two Soul bands I was working on I have decided to resign from (for the same reason) and the other Soul band is taking a hiatus while a new guitarist is sorted. So all in all www.contraband.com.au is my main musical outlet and hopefully the agents will keep as very busy.

​

Till next time when I write about our Puggs gig...Peace
