Factory St Studio went on a field trip to The Albert Hall to see Joe Bonamassa. Joe said (in between extreme guitar solos) that one of his favourite songs was by Eric Clapton and he invited him on stage to play which was a real treat, after an outstanding performance he called Paul Jones up to play harmonica. Factory Street were waiting for Amy to be called up but he must have run out of time!
The studio is on track for being open in July. Ferdinando is doing a sterling job of angling the ceiling. The studio has been meticulously designed with no two surfaces opposite each other, separate floors for each booth, and with one of the largest live rooms in the area and quality gear the sound will be immense.
Performance and Vocal Techniques
Rev Chunky gave an inspirational session on the wider aspects of performance and vocal techniques. Around 20 people of all ages and backgrounds had a chance to talk, sing, laugh and share their experiences and Factory Street are all looking forward to seeing him again soon.
Blues Master Class
There was again a real mixture of people for this workshop with Alex Eden. People had a chance to play with different people, play lead guitar, bass and rhythm. There were blues tips, tricks, techniques discussed and everyone went away with new techniques to try.
