Australia Day Pass the Mike

On the evening before Australia day I got a message from Lacey that she wanted to get a few Australian Second Life performers together to play at her place (in Second Life) with a definitely Australian Theme.

So it ended up with four of us doing a "pass the mike" for four hours! The participants were:

I have to say I have not had so much fun performing in a long time (and I generally have fun performing). The format that we went for was simply three songs and then pass the stream to the next performer (well I did one set with two, but "The Band Played Waltzing Mathilda" runs about 8 minutes). For the most part we played a lot of Australian music, I did a few I wouldn't normally (what is Australia Day without Slim Dusty's "Pub with no Beer" ?).

Apparently for the four hours we had about 30 people listening constantly. We all had a fantastic time. I love this format!

Video from kameleonz in Second Life - "Hot Cappucino"

Two Weeks ago I was playing in a new place called Kameleonz in Second Life. Before I went up I had a request from Fabios that he would like to take a video of me playing. I requested that he only record one of my originals as I don't have the rights to allow for something else to be videoed (in spite of lots of people on youtube doing it).

The result is the clip below of me playing my own "Hot Cappuccino".
