The Bigtime SuperCrew UNITE!
Yes friends! It’s that time of year again (in fact, it’s a little bit later than it normally is, but it looks like summer came late this year so it was totally intentional obviously). Time to start gearing up for the love-filled friend fest where we spend some time together enjoying the personalities, talents and beauty of those close and maybe not so close to us and Robb in the name of the big man himself.
We’ve spent some time laying down the ground work for this year’s event and are proud and excited to reveal that this year Robb’s Gig will be held DOWNSTAIRS AT THE ASSEMBLY INN in beautiful BATH, on Saturday November 12th 2011 at 6:30 PEE EMM! EEK! That’s ONLY FIVE WEEKS AWAY!
This year it’s all about inclusion and involvement! We’ve already lined up some awesome acts who will perform on the night in the spirit and legacy of everything, but we want to see everyone get up and do something. In the spirit of this ethos, we’ve put together what may be the most earth shattering backing band OF ALL TIME to perform tracks of your bidding. Myself, John Ryan and Pocket Chris have all lent their talents to the band and we’d like you to get up and perform with us. If there’s a track you’d like to perform with us, either original or existent, then email me at email@example.com and let’s get performing. Please let us know by 28th October if you’d like us to learn something and we’ll get our caps on (nb: not caps lock)
AND ALSO! If there’s anything at all you’d like to contribute to the night – be it art, be it comedy, be it film (we’ve got a screen behind the stage), or even BALLOON ANIMALLING, A SMALL DANCE INVOLVING ONE LEG, A JOKE YOU MADE UP, or ANY COMBINATION OR NONE OF THE ABOVE, then let’s do this! If you have absolutely anything you’d like to bring to the night again, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s talk! The night is not about competition, far from it, it’s about enjoying each other in whatever form that takes.
Bands, singers, songwriters, let’s do this! Email me if you want to play and we’ll get you on. We’ll have full backline (drums, amps, keys, mics and guitars if necessary) so you just need to turn up. Please let us know ahead of time if you’d like to get playing.
This year we’re looking at keeping it a bit lower key than in previous years (nb: but just as AWESOME), and we’ll be talking a lot about how 2012 is shaping up. Lots of chat has already been had about making 2012 the big one – charging for entry, having a lineup featuring some big-hitting bands, making it an overnight affair – we’re the people who are going to make this happen so let’s use the night to talk about it and see who’s up for contributing what in terms of organization, logistics and perhaps how we get a load of money to do it for absolutely nothing!
Back to this year, we’d love to see as many of you down there as possible and if you have any ideas for the night at all we’d love to hear them. We’ll hopefully be streaming the whole gig live over the net for any internationals or people otherwise engaged (or parented..!) who may not be able to make it, and of course the main thing is that everyone comes along and makes this year all that you guys have made it so far.
Let’s do this!!
Big love as always
Paul, John and Chris xx
