Re: Matala beach festival again

May be the last time this festival happens sadly as the newly elected council are very anti festival which is pretty stupid as last year it generated six million euros income for the area.We are going to make the most of it we open the proceedings at five o'clock which is pretty good and we get an hour to play.I think the reason for the new council's feelings is the money generated by the event doesn't go into the council coffers, a bit narrow minded as the area needs tourism to survive and the sixty thousand that came last year is a hell of a lot by any standard.Any way enough ranting let's play some rock n roll.

Re: Matala beach festival again

Hard too look and sound like the Beatles! I went too your website you have some good tunes there. Badeye recently posted some youtube  videos of Elvin Bishop,I think you could do his songs well. Travling shoes, Fooled around and fell in love,etc. just my opinion. Ya they are from the 70's but kinda blues/rock. Guys got some wild lookin eye's.

Re: Matala beach festival again

Ok I'll check him out dino it's good to find some different material to suit my voice.the thing with tribute bands is you've got to be as good as the act you pretend to be and sadly these guys couldn't do the voices ,I'm probably the only English guy who doesn't like the Beatles but l can appreciate a good cover .the Santana tribute that followed us on Friday were fantastic so it shows that it can be done.maybe I'm just being to picky about tribute acts and shouldn't criticize as there is obviously a demand for this stuff

Re: Matala beach festival again

I think you could do his songs good.do you check out badeyes Friday's blues post it is has around 750 posts on it. If you are looking for rock you might be close too the Rascals  (or Young rascals) Felix cavillari ( Good Loving, ) check out there youtube. I like the Beatles but mostly George Harrison. I think my favorite singers/songwriter is Van Morrison, Power Voice! not anyone I have seen can do him!

Re: Matala beach festival again

Makes sense now I hate walking or standing on hot sand. Your co singer the girl looks pretty but she looks tall, I thought most greek people were short. Good you hsd some fun drinking it up.

Re: Matala beach festival again

Elpida is Australian Greek we have played together for a number of years she has a range of about 3 octaves and can sing almost any style .the local choir rate her as a star the maestro George papadakis who organises and trains them has worked on Broadway musicals in the past.I wish she had more time for what we do but we have to share her and get her to sing when she can for us.

Re: Matala beach festival again

Grah1,  Some folks would take that as a standing invitation, and I'd personally love getting back into that part of the world for a visit..... How's the Council feel about West Coast Hippies camping on their beaches?   That is IF they decide to give it a go next year.

Take Care;
Doug

Re: Matala beach festival again

Doug for the last four years the camp site has been free for the festival  or you can get a room in one of the many small hotels for around 30 euros a night if you pre book , food at the festival is also cheap and good  souvlaki pita with fries about 2-50 ,street pasta about same and the raki flows like water.
