It’s been a hot minute since we did write anything on this blog. You could call it neglect or laziness.. None of the above. It’s the everyday life of finding time. We try to get as much info in on every blog we do here. But we’ll try hard to bring everything here for you in news and what’s going on in our world of this journey in the Disco band land of ours.
The Elektrik Company had a successful year, we had good share of shows and awesome private events that we’ve done! As we come to near the close of 2012 and renew the year I think we had a great successful run! We are hoping for much more exposure in the new year and for more people to discover how much fun this band really is to see live! We hope to try achieve that in 2013 and beyond! But we need your help! help spread the word out and tell your friends and family about this band. Come out and see a show when we play next! The energy of this band is infectious, the only way to experience it is to really see it! Pictures can’t describe it.
There was a many of firsts for us this year. Landed a gig at our first Casino show at the Resorts World was a blast! And the experience of playing a casino was so much fun! Hope we get to play there again soon and often. Huge screens filled the backdrop and playing on top of a bar! that was the most unique setup I’ve seen for any gig ever played. It works well as we played and music filled the open air drowning out the ring rings of the slots. And slew of people walking by checking us and having a drink or two. The strange thing is you don’t know if they are watching the Big screen or us or both. One funny thing of note, as usual Jerome the entertainer that he is, always loves jumping on bars and he did so again , against my objections to it. I think he may be the first to ever tried that on that casino bar.. I just hope the management was okay or else that will be the last time we play there! Anyhow, the casino experience is definitely a fit for this band! Casino’s out there, give us a call!
Few private shows were played this year , and landed few gigs at Drom in the east village. We love love DRom, very classy and nice spot, but we hope we can pull in banging turnout for that place. We have to say, we sounded the best sound wise in that club. But hoping we can push something big in there! it’s a work in progress, but I think we can do it! Drafting up a plan!
Now that December is upon us and looks like we capped it off to nice ending of shows. We just recently played a quick appearance at the Canal room NYC with our family of tribute bands of from Fun Music Artists for the Hurricane Sandy Relief benefit. A night of different decades from 70′s to today representing. What a great night for all the bands to come together! Even for a Wednesday the energy was there with the sparse crowd. Yes it is hard to go out on a school night, but for this type of show was so worth it and a great help for the victims of Hurricane Sandy storm. Hope we can do something like this again in some other sort of capacity or another.
We are also looking forward to one more private show this weekend to cap off 2012. And to us , this is such a treat! To play at Studio 54 or once was the 54 basement turned to cabaret club called 54 below. It should be a wild time and also nostalgic! like a Christmas gift opened on Christmas day , this is it. Will blog on the happenings if anything crazy might go on from this event.
What? E Company not ringing in the New Year? Well not yet at least, but I think when we do it’ll be huge! We hope to get one in the future to ring in the New Years! Hopefully someone out there that is reading this can prep and hire us for their next New Years Party?? wink wink!
Boogie on people! Hope your year was great and here’s to a prosperous and healthy 2013! And of course Happy Holidays to all!
