The Whiskey Foundation at Clap Club, December 2015

Recommended Posts

Last year I went to three concerts of The Whiskey Foundation.

The first more by accident, I came for another band at a free concert evening and was totally surprised by the last act (and fighting with the broken AF of my newly acquired D750)...

In April and December I went there on purpose. The guys are great!

The sound often reminds me of the Doors even though it is new stuff written today.

For me the Munich Band of 2015.

Over the three concerts I could see how their stage presentation evolved. Initially the playlist was not built for a progression, but in the last concert they had that down perfectly.

And, the concert in December was performed at Clap Club, a demo or film studio from Arri, so the light was fabulous.

The December concert had an opening act by the street musicians the singer used to play with:

The Drummer, the beast:

One of the few moments where one could see the face of the bass player:

The keyboarder sounds a lot like Ray Manzarek:

Typically horrible concert lighting - you did extremely well considering that apparently mandatory situation. I really wonder at times why the so-called "lighting" guys have what appears to be a hatred for their job?

Or do they just get the transport guys to throw up a few spotlights anywhere while they're hauling the equipment in? ;)

 

I wouldn't mind adding that Hofner VT guitar to my collection, though, they're difficult to come by here with everyone being obsessed with the Hofner "Beatle Bass" instead. :)

Thanks!

I consider this light luxury compared to others I had to deal with so far.

Yes, high contrasts, but at least light ;-)

The two other times I shot this band at Muffathalle, they where mostly backlit. A real PITA.

cheers

My last live music coverage was exactly that - no light from the front, strong light from back of stage. I really wonder how the people who actually organise these events don't notice this sort of thing - what is the point of a live performance if you can't see the musicians properly?

      A few weeks back I stumbled across Alpin Drums, a percussion/performance group.
      When I booked the ticket I realized one of them was the percussionist from The Stimulators, a favourite band of mine.
      So expectations where very high but easily matched by the guys on stage.
       
      They where using everything from milk cans


      to rubber toys and plastic tubing


      and even swimming noodles

       
      The whole set is here.
       
      cheers

      On May 10th, we went to listen to Peter Schneider and 'Sir' Oliver Malley,
      two excellent guitarists playing blues together.
      I have heard Peter many times as the band leader of the "The Stimulators",
      so my expectations where high, but I was not disappointed.
      Oliver is definitely a stage person:


      Together they are a terrific team:

      Even the barkeeper is impressive:

      And they do mix excellent cocktails there, they even have really good espresso.
      A few more images can be seen here: here.
      Now I am waiting for their first CD.
      All images with 50/1.8 or a Sigma 24/1.8.
      cheers

      Recently I visited the Schrottgallerie the first time. It is an art gallery that often hosts concerts.
      That evening Boogielicious was on the "stage".
      Drums and piano playing Boogie with lots of energy.
