Cheers, I appreciate that! We have spent a fair bit of time on sounds, tones, etc, which meant when it came to mixing the recording, it was very straight forward. Only took a few passes of the song to dial some compression and EQ and reverb in and I was done.
Yeah, the PFE tour extensively and put on a great show. I'm also in a PF tribute show (www.eclipseband.co.nz
) that has done some seriously epic shows, and we have no trouble selling 400 tickets to any given show. Have done a few big outdoor shows and have sold 2000+ tickets before.
If I was to work out what I get paid per hour for all the work I do to make that happen it's probably not a great wage, but it's incredibly fun.
Once I arrived at a show at Black Barn about an hour before the gates were open to find a crowd of maybe 200 people waiting to get in. It was an amazing feeling to know they were coming to enjoy our show. You could not buy that feeling for any money
