Further Equipment Upgrade

We have just purchased a top of the range mixing console:

Peavey FX2 24 mixing console

Peavey FX2 24 mixing console

Used in conjunction with our Bose speakers and amplifiers, this new console will ensure we continue to provide the highest quality hi-fidelity sound.  Although larger than our previous mixing console, it replaces not only the old mixer, but also reverb & delay effects, compressor, graphic equaliser and cd player.  Part of our aim is to reduce the amount of equipment we have to carry whilst maintaining the highest possible quality sound.

Return of the Yeti!

A towering presence

A towering presence

We are delighted to say that we have a replacement for Paul as our bass player.  Tony has played with Yeti in another band and, when he heard of the vacancy, Yeti jumped at the chance of playing with Jurassic Rock.

Yeti is a vastly experienced musician.  He has played and sung with a wide range of bands and has taught guitar, bass, singing and music theory in a number of institutions.

Yeti brings a unique dynamic and at 6′ 4″, he is a towering presence.  Bob and Tony are pleased that Paul’s replacement will allow Jurassic Rock to continue as the region’s leading rock ‘n’ roll band.

2015

Author jurassictone    Category News     Tags

2015 had its ups and downs, but ended on a high note with an absolutely stonking gig at The Plough Inn on New Year’s Eve.  Kate and Kevin put a lot of work into the preparation and the crowd really entered into the spirit of our Sounds of the Sixites show.  Audience participation was tremendous, even if one over enthusiastic young lady constantly requested “Great Ball Of Fire” in spite of being told by everyone that a 50s tune, great as it is, doesn’t work in a concert of songs from the 60s!

The only tinge of sadness to the evening was that this was Paul’s last gig with Jurassic Rock, as he is now taking an indefinite sabbatical from his music career to help his wife with their new baby, due in February.  Good luck, Paul.

January will be spent auditioning replacement bass players before we start a new gig season afresh.

Happy 2016 to everyone.
