It has been a while. How are things? Leave a comment and let us know. We really love hearing about what you are up to.
It’s March 2014. On paper, that means “meteorological winter” is over for southeast Wisconsin. But when I stepped outside into 1 degree Fahrenheit air this morning, which froze my breath, I wasn’t convinced that Mother Nature got the memo. Maybe she lost a bet with Old Man WInter.
GUPPY EFFECT has been on a rather lengthy hiatus for restructuring and now it is time to let everyone know that we are working hard on some great rock-n-roll and are close to being able to unleash it upon the world soon. Isn’t that exciting? All we have to do is book some official shows, which is the hardest part, and honestly not our forte.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t still come see us live in an UNOFFICIAL capacity.
Every Sunday night from 8 to 10 PM, GUPPY EFFECT has been showcasing at the Funks Pub Open Jam/Stage in Fitchburg, WI, along with other great local musicians and bands. It is a great way for us to show our stuff and expose ourselves to a live audience. Normally exposing yourself in public is frowned upon, but when GUPPY EFFECT does it, faces melt and so hardly anyone notices.
We have been practicing weekly on Tuesdays, focusing on producing some top shelf rock-n-roll product – quality vs. quantity. We usually hone 3 to 5 songs to excellence at Tuesday band practice and then perform the best 3 or 4 of them at Funks. This keeps us in top rock-n-roll form and we can figure out the best way to present our songs in a live setting.
It’s super fun, and we would love it if you would stop out some Sunday night to check out the jams. There are usually several musicians or bands on hand. Some people jam with the house band, MUDROOM, and some people play solo stuff. Don’t be shy, it’s a great time.
Stay tuned and I am sure we will book a “real” show soon. But if you need your GUPPY EFFECT fix before that, Funks is the place.
