Peter Schneider & 'Sir' Oliver Mally @ Bar Gabanyi

Recommended Posts

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

I like the 2nd shot most. Interesting how many guitarists have become lazy with these clip on tuners and not removing them while they are playing on stage. :)

Well, at least Oliver was quite often changing the complete tune of his guitar.

Interesting suggestion that the guitarist remove the tuner - I can't for the life of me see why that's necessary or that he'd even want to do that? I mean, it's always accessible should the guitar fall out of tune during a performance, as well as that you always know where it is. Electric guitars are a different story if they have a tuner plugged into the floor pedal array, but this is no good for an unamplified acoustic

 

Here's the headstock of my guitar as it is all the time - I've misplaced or lost enough tuners and capos over the years to make the discipline of always keeping them attached to the headstock of my main guitar (unless actually needed elsewhere) a simple enough and by now automatic task. The guitar fits into its hard shell case just fine with everything in place as well. This gave me an ideal opportunity to try the new focus stacking update on the X-T2 - 20 shots taken in just under 5 seconds, 50-140mm zoom at f/2.8, zoom @ 129mm, and totally unretouched stack in Zerene Stacker... worked like a charm. :)

It just looks tatty, in my opinion. I'm just as guilty of the practice, but then I don't play to any audiences. ;)

Guitars are for playing or listening to, not looking at... :)

I challenge you to decoupage all your guitars!

Declined - this would wreck the sound of the acoustic guitars in particular, which, as I said, is a guitar's sole reason for existing in the first place. :D 

 

My 2008 Larrivée LV-05 is one of the plainest guitars in visual appearance imaginable, but has a sound and playability that completely defies its Plain Jane looks. The finish is wafer-thin so as not to disturb the natural resonance of the wood, and the last thing I'd ever consider is to stick crap and extra varnish all over it - that I'll leave up to glam-rock bands whose music is derived from 3 chords cranked into full overdrive distortion and fully dependent on a wall of noise, pyrotechnic stage displays, fancy-dress and instruments decorated with stickers and assorted crap that would make a Redneck pick-up truck look basic and unadorned in comparison.

      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

      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.
