Hi fellow Justineer’s
Well I just got another 2.5 hour gig under my belt.
I did a sing-a-long event at an over 50’s Lifestyle Community.
They were really noisy as you will hear in the video but they did get into the singing.
So in continuing my recent theme of Aussie classic songs here is my cover from the gig of Russell Morris On The Wings Of An Eagle. You may not have heard it before but it was a major hit for him in 1972.
Audio is very average as it was recorded on my iPhone mic. Unfortunately it picked up a lot of the background noise, however, it will give you an idea of how my gig went.
Hi fellow Justineer’s
Hi Ron, I guess your gig has been great fun! It sounded just great, despite the background noises…that is how an acoustic guitar is supposed to sound!
Well done Ron. 2.5 hours, wow. That must have been quite some set list.
Great for you to have another gig done. 2.5 hours is a bit of a marathon! As sairfingers said that must have been an extensive set list. I see you are plugged in, turn the amp up!
Nice one Ron!
They sound like a fun crowd to perform to!

I did turn it up and was asked to turn it down lol.
I posted my set list in Gordon’s reply if you want to see it.
Thank you Ruaridh,
They were a great crowd. I did have some complaints but most very good feedback.
Nice one Ron. 2.5 hours, wow, how were the finger tips after that?
It was nice to hear some of the noisy crowd singing along in the chorus’s and I guess that the round of applause makes up for them being so noisy.
Thank you Stefan,
Yes the applause is always morale booster .
My fingers were great as my callouses are well formed .
What a great set list Ron. Only 2 or 3 that I’m not familiar with. I must be in your target audience.
Great to see people on here playing proper gigs! Well done for a 2.5h long set. This requires a fair bit of preparation and stamina!
Also, love your Youtube name!
Hi Ron, oh wow, 2,5 hours of entertaining a lively crowd sounds challenging .
Congratulations on mastering it so well .
Reading your setlist, I realized that there were only two songs, I’m able to play as well. It gave my some nice song ideas to work on .
And I’m really glad, you played your own song as well. It’s so beautiful .
Thank you so much Nicole.
