Backstage Tap & Grill, March 12th, 2005
137 Ave & 126th St, Edmonton, AB
The Backstage Tap & Grill was a total success last night, the band came out rockin and put on our best show ever. The stage, lighting and drum riser gave us plenty of room to move around and the guys in the band took full advantage of it, running from side to side and lining up for the Detroit solo with Glen on the drum riser. The stage is very comfortable and the sound from the in house system is amazing not to mention the club itself, which boasts excellent service, food and has a professional atmosphere.
The band opened up the night with "Further Again" from Staggered Crossing and continued to pick up the pace as the night rocked on. Our original went over really well, it was the first time we actually played "Left Behind" live and we nailed it. We heard nothing but good comments from everyone in the audience, the owners (Gerald & Dave) and bar manager (Michael). I would have to say there were about 250 who turned out to witness the Badseed experience, with "Pornstars" on special the shooters were going down smooth all night long and I was told the club did well in sales which is "Most Excellent".
I have a huge list of people to thank so here goes, Gerald, Dave & Michael: Thanks for giving us the chance. Gary the soundman, without you it wouldn't have been possible. Wicked Job! To all the waitresses, Tina & Don the DJ: Awesome service, super speed on getting the tequila's to the band and wicked tunes in between sets.
