Hey all!
There's a new game coming out on xBox called Sea of Thieves. It's basically an open world pirate game and my band Captain Hellfire & The Wretched Brethren have been commissioned to play live along with groups of players playing online this weekend. It will all be streamed on xBox's facebook and other social media channels.

It's all pretty exciting! I fly out to Sydney tomorrow morning. Then it's 3 solid 8 hour days in the studio. It will be the most skinny-string I've every played in a weekend I reckon!

Check out the promo video below & tune in over the weekend to see me rock acoustic 6-string. The bass player and his custom pirate bass are worth checking out too :D



I wasn't sure whether to put this in "announcements" or "off topics" coz this is the band I play the skinny-strings in... but to be fair there's 3 bass players in the band so I figured it's bass-related enough. The bass player, the accordion player & me (the guitarist) are all bass players at heart but it's hard to play in the same band together that way!! :p

Shiver me timbers ! This looks like a real blast Doug.. Was it rock, paper scissors to choose who plays bass ?

Haha. nah, Dylby is a good friend of mine & is the original bass player. I filled in for a a few gigs while he was on tour with another band. The guitarist departed shortly after he got back & i put my hand up for guitar duties coz it's a lot of fun. Pearl is another good friend of ours & plays multiple instruments so it was logical to get her in on accordion 😀

While you're in Sydney, being the age you are, you can check out any gigs rated Ahhrr.
