    Default Live Outdoor Music BIG GIG at Dammies

    Live Outdoor music BIG GIG
    SUNDAY 13th AUGUST
    St Georges Park - -The Dammies
    Start Noon end around 10 pm
    Proceed split between Caithness General Hospital and Thurso Town Improvements



    Apologies for the delays we had a wee last minute shuffle around on Monday due to bands going on holidays etc and luckily a band have stepped in
    THANK YOU ALL ON BEHALF OF THURSO TOWN IMPROVEMENTS FOR TAKING PART ITS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED

    The bands playing and i stress this is not a running order, in alaphabetical are the following and we exempeted noboy that relplied to us in the way we asked filling out the details we required

    Astronot - - - - Rock Pop Punk
    Blue X Man and the 68 Comeback - - - - -Blues influenced Rock & Roll ( Edinburgh based Band)
    Cyanide - - - - Melodic Popular Rock
    Duress - - - - - - Classic Rock, 70s 80s, Mainstream

    Estrella - - - - - - -Old School Rock / Classic Rock-
    Graham Maharg -original soul/pop rock with a hint of jazz and r and b
    Plastic Food - - - - Original Heavy Rock Material
    Timefish - - - Eightes covers - (Orkney Band)
    Whitenoize Punk , punk rock , metal, heavy metal ,

    NO OTHER BANDS CAN NOW BE ACCEPTED UNLESS SOME OTHER WITHDRAWS

    ADVERTISING is local press, Moray Firth Radio and Radio Scotland and hopefully a bit more im working on for a small tv ad - it may not come to pass as its very expensive
    You should start to see more about it in next week or so around town though

    FYI At the moment there will be a photographer Alan MacIvor taking photos
    THere will be Daren Manson recording a DVD for TTIA

    Interestingly there will also be a TV/Film company recording a proffesional DVD for one band but has also said they will also record the whole event so tell you r mates if they want to be in a DVD get there -Fame and Fortune beckons
    There is also a music reviewer from a large circulation Scottis Paper in residence

    Isacc Sutherland of qpQ will get back to you soon with a running order and a list of what techy equipment will be there that you dont need to bring
    Isaac Sutherland will call the shots on the day to keep the bands in order
    My job will to make sure you are around about near your time and are happy

    THe stage is two 40 foot "sided" lorries side by side so the stage size will be about 40 foot x 16foot

    Time change overs between bands coming off and on are critical to the whole event and everyone is expected to do NO MORE that 45 minutes worth of material

    Isaac will be on a separate podium away from the stage so he can hear the music properly and keep control

    The gig will start dead on NOON and if timed correctly will finish at TEN PM

    There will be a licensed marquee and BBqs etc and stall

    Any word on a poster or something so we can get the emails flying about?

    There is someone working on it at this very moment (Cheers Darren) so hopefully we will have something to bang out at the beginning of the week round town etc

    Had to contract that part out as i am no artist - -well not the drawing type anyway!!

    What will be the best way for people to pick it up?

    I could probably get it put on as a download for folk to take off the thurso.org site -
    maybe the good folk from Caithness.org will put it on too! I'll ask
    Or i can email it direct to people

    Cant think of any other electronc way thats quicker or more effective
    Anybody any other ideas

    Theres a load getting printed off aswell which we'll have out and about during the next week but if anyone can print them off at their work feel free to pile them out.
    We'll probably get Thurso obliterated wi them without any hassle but if anyone can get them round Castletown, Wick 'the sticks' etc it would be a bit handy and save me a fair bit of hassle

    A big pint to the person who gets them in the most prominent or daft place
    Get it on the telly and your a God among men!!
