sun love life and tech!

Hola! just a quick check in to keep all you peeps updated on things – I just turned 47 which I had a great birthday thanks to my close family and my close friends here in Spain god bless you all and thank you.

Im fully booked now for the rest of the year and playing some awesome venues in a round malaga. I have been looking for a local drummer and bass player for members of a new band for next year which ill keep you updated on. Ive plenty of new songs which are great and still working on a album which ill finish for the end of the year and it’ll be available as the Wayne Ward album of 2019 collection. My beatle one show goes live over xmas so expect to se some pre shows…

here is some new tech – my new sennheiser mic which when connected ted to my new phonic desk with the tube output and built in vocal compression is sounding like never before. The Levinson blade super Strat comes to life through the tube desk.

We are currently in what we call the Inferno and suffering heat you would never imagine. So we have to keep in the shade and pick safe days for the beach or pool till it levels! So we got freddies hair chopped! …

 

we are in full drive with craft on the coast and adding new companies to the craft ale locator and adding new bars down the coast. Also we have moved our web server to a new host as we have seen tso host decay over the past year so now we have blazing fast websites and email with proper support! Also gigseek my music agency is rapid growth and we are looking for new acts all the time so feel free to pm me for more information on this.

I noticed my blogs are well spaced out nowadays!

its been a while since I blogged again! its funny I don’t get so much time to sit round in computers and laptops but its nice when I do! I mainly spend my time on my mobile advertising for my shows and beers sales! I tend to keep a way from the stress of computer repairs and websites although I do still dip in my toe occasionally! My season starts now and iv e just finished working with the SilverBeats which wasn’t bad! Im back working for my self now and working on a new project for a new band for next year featuring a Beatles hits that goes through the years I noticed people asking in the band if we do later stuff so my new project will feature hits right through the years very similar to my solo betake show BeatleOne which is a show which is a beatles story featuring music from the start to the end of The Beatles giving the audience the full Beatles experience. I got myself a nice John Lennon Rickenbacker which is great and I got a Vox ac15 which is amazing! plus I got the epiphany casino which is pretty damn crap but I’m going to work on this to make it to professional standard but what you expect for a 500 quid guitar!! Personally for myself im booked out all year and have some awesome venues lined up! Im so busy I created a music agency called GigSeek and have some great acts and events on the books already! As well as this Craft on the coast is going great and we have changed our bear over to Attik brewery which has been awesome as the beers sales have increased and we have great relationship with the brewery! and we like the beer! We are just adjusting the venue for our Monday meetings for our friends Called the Monday Club! we have had great times in the anca sol venue and the florin restaurant but we are looking now at a new venue in Torremolinos central once we are settled ill create a great blog for this! Ive had some great friends visit recently and love to thank them for taking the time to come and see me it means a lot. Ive got a nice review coming up for Granada beer festival this weekend which ill share the link here.. also I’ve got a nice review of iPhone / iPad apps coming up which you might find interesting …. also a lot of people ask me about working out here as a professional musician im working on a blog outlining what will make you successful and give you great tips for what’s good and bad here working as a musician in Spain.

hasta pronto

Id love to thank all my good friends who have been here for me lately and having such great times and keeping life happy and positive.. this past two years has been life changing getting a new start on life and escaping morecambe has been a miracle! peace love and hope to all the awesome people I know.

here is some of our new beers…

 

a random check in! Hola!

 

a random check in! Hola!

Just a random check in! just to keep people entertained whats going on in my life! Well im nicely settled in our house in spain now – We have been working hard to get work both in selling beer and playing music. Dont get me wrong its not all easy its taken till now to get all the business and documentation thats required so its been hard and now we are just growing nicely. All the things people told me i could do i basically did! the old one about getting into the health system and the biggest joke > your house might get knocked down and all this is just one big fat joke! listed if you want to move to another country for what ever reason you have just do it, make sure you have a trade and not just wanting to bum of the state and make sure you do your homework and in my case years of ground work! Luckily enough we have good business and met some friends you couldn’t buy in the UK! We have had the good people we love visit us and we have big respect for them coming out of there way to see how we live and enjoy our company. Were lucky we have a nice little car and a lovely scooter for when we do actually need wheels.. Life changes out here and you don’t want to be using transport if you can help it let alone having to watch mountains of rubbish on the old TV because its to cold to do anything! People say do you miss the UK you look like your enjoying yourself!? im like are you kissing its well down the pan and has been for years, nothing going on, scruffy and all that as well as the country has no spine and is being taken right under there nose! I didnt like watching that happen so i said good bye to it all, which is hard being a english man.

Any way we have a new addition to the family… no we never bought a kid! ..meet fredo – out maltese

he is cool and such a lovely dog. but dont be fooled by this fur ball he is also known as the town nutter and wrecks balconies!!! This is him posing after his haircut in benalmadena!

Anyway ive been playing quite a lot of gigs out here and get quite established ive managed to cover from torremolinos right down to marbella so far! its been great added loads of new songs to my setup and ive just been added to a massive gig thats coming of in September in benalmadena auditorium  – look out for me on the coast i go out as GET BACK!! as per usual i do sixties / blues / beatles and rock and roll and getting quite well noticed! like any place they need something fresh and a lot of people like to see musicians loaded with guitars in there hands and also be able to use them!

Ive seen some dribble out here and ive seen some good but thats got to stay in my mind and thoughts you never seen this

I acquired a tc helicon harmony gt-x which i havent had time to use for the harmonies yet! but used the delays and revers and slap back delays which are awesome, ill get to use the harmony stuff soon im sure when i do my next acoustic session that includes using a PA! i also added a behringer 300 watt sub to my system (stage pass 600w) which has added a whole new dimension to the sound giving it that bottom end it requires !! BOOOOM!

Dont seem to do much with the computers much now – i dont see so many people using them out here but were in season so its to hot to be sat around key tapping see how this goes out of season im not that bothered to be honest i cant tell you the amount of idiots ive put up with over the past fifteen / twenty years with computers, real nutters! ha sad really but true.

So are there anythings i dont like about spain?

  • I was going to say it gets to hot but i cant really can i!? 
  • Mosquitos – i hate the bastards!
  • Cockroaches – im getting used to the oversized horrible things
  • People dont move out of the way when you walking down the street
  • People stand in the middle of the pavement blocking it chatting!

I cant complain the weather is stable (hot) the beach is good, the bars and beer and wine are just amazing, the places we travel to are simply amazing, all the people we have met are amazing, the gigs are amazing, the lifestyle is amazing its just amazing!! and its just festival after festival – music and more music !!!!!

Seeing the way the families are out here makes me wish i was born here! the children have great respect for there parents none of this favoritism going on just so laid back its nice to see what others have the privilege of enjoying and growing with there children and families properly like it should be. I give respect for this.

So if any of my UK people ever make malaga just pm me ill come and have that wine and a tapas or two.

Thank you for tuning in and reading about my life, don’t forget if people think you cant do something and they say you are in a bubble – just do it, if you want something bad enough you get it. 

Peace and love xx  Amor Malaga

malaga craft ale – 2017, craft on the coast starts to breathe…

craft on the coast starts to breathe…

Craft on the coast is a new company for 2017 based on the costa del sol, malaga. We are company thats specialises only in craft ales. The craft ales that we supply currently are craft ales created in malaga.

The website doesnt  contain any product information as we are just adding the first line of 3 monos craft ale. Please watch the website for updates or twitter feed.

Here is the new website!

As well as supplying craft ale ill also be reviewing some of the amazing craft ales available and created in malaga itself. Here are some of the carma range i tested in januray in torremolinos.

the carma range is quite extensive. ill be reviewing all these amazing ales. One of the craft ales that stood out was burro de sancho ill be taking a closer look at this range.

The top images are from the left a malaga px, the special edition this is one of the good ones, premium quality craft, well hopped and strong character. The middle ale la cuevena  is a different kettle of fish im not sure but i was told this was made from carrots? it wasnt transparent in the glass and to be honest id sat tasteless, weird tasting, reminded me some what of knettle wine i used to buy when i was a lad!. Far right, well what can i say monkey business made by the 3 monos brewing company in malaga. This is the one at 5.8% and bursting with caramel and fruit!
