From Mt Maunganui New Zealand we are Shagg Performance...
A few years ago (2003) a twist of fate started in a drunkin night of mayhem and carnage. Much alcohol had been consumed when a tragic event which left our now lead guitarist in surgery getting pins and bolts put in his left leg.
Now with nothing to do for months he decided to buy a new guitar. With the experience he gathered early in life at school the jamming was instant. With a bunch of mates that had stuck together for years but had no musical skills it wasn't long until one of them spoke up and said "can I yell down the mic for you and maybe sing" Yep! We were always keen on having a jam with other people, but never found others that had the same ambition or shared the same dream of being able to live of music.
What was the next step? The next step was to talk two of our mates into playing the bass and drums. At this stage we were challening our friends to show initiative behind our $200 drum kit. Renee started playing on the drums who just happened to have piano experience and good musical knowledge. We had a drummer.
The next was our bass player. He purchased his bass which by coincidence happed to be a five string. This suited the guitarist as seven string guitars were his choice. There was only one problem he was off on his big OE. Left with no bassist the jamming slowed for a few months until one day out of the blue he just turned up out of no where wanting to share a part of the dream.
A week later we sat down and organized to practice Tuesday and Thursday nights. This was going to be a band that only ever played original music that was writen about true life experiences. We organized a bank account and started buying what we needed. We have completed 16 demo songs with more in the pipe line and been playing quite frequently at local bars and gigs. We have also purchased a full PA so we are not restricted to playing certain gigs.
SP is a band that is into having fun and living life and we'll be in a town near you soon!!!!
