(Gay) Paris

A late addition to the Gecko 3 gigging programme saw the trio playing an emergency fill-in spot alongside the marvellous ‘Team Salt’ at Heriot Watt when ‘Found’ couldn’t make it.  A very enjoyable gig and nice to see some returning faces from our last trip out there.  We also very much enjoyed ripping it up acoustically at Donna Amplifico’s houseparty on last Saturday night.  Thanks to everyone who was dancing and to Donna’s neighbours for not complaining about the drumkit.
The first bit of really big news this month, though, is that Gecko 3 are gigging in Paris in less than a fortnight – playing alongside the ‘Jazzmooners’ which feature (on sax) our old friend and musical collaborator Steve ‘the ear’ Meeker – now resident in the French capital.  (It is a little known fact that the first gig ever played by Gecko 3 was done so in Henry’s Cellar Bar under the name of ‘The Meeker Connection’  becuase just dropping his name was enough to get us the gig.)
The second thing that is causing great excitement chez lizard right now is that we’ve been asked to support the fantastic ‘Quantic Soul Orchestra’ at the Bongo Club on Thursday December 7th.  We’ll pass on more details when we get them.
Finally, next month, after we’ve spent a week recording and honing our grooves for extra pleasure, you can also catch us at the Jazz Bar on Saturday December 16th and then kicking off 2007 with a bring-a-hangover party in the Jazz Bar on January 1st!
Be happy.
