Live Music at Thomas Tripp Pub Christchurch

I always Launch a new song at Thomas Tripp gigs

 

It is not exactly a tradition but it always seems to work out that way; then again, I seem to have a new acoustic song or two added to the set list at every gig. The gig list is always 2 pages long and changes for every gig, with a few favourite singer songwriter pieces that are a great warm up, quite a few difficult fingerstyle ones to challenge me, a few blues numbers and even a few ad lib songs lately; odd how the audience have reacted so well to those ad lib songs, hmm!

 

Well, I am back at The Thomas Tripp again on Wednesday 12 November. It is always a really great night, with lots of familiar people coming out for my music, with the occasional teasing and friendly heckling that accompanies years of coming to my gigs.

Tim Heywood’s Music Blog – Pete Christie Live @ The Thomas Tripp Christchurch

February 12th, 2011

After a fun Pete Christie music event at The Thomas Tripp, Tim Heywood, one of the hardest working Bournemouth ‘gigster’/ reviewer / Hope FM radio presenter / judge at DUMA / musician / had time to focus on his informative Local Music Scene blog.

(worth reading if you were at a gig, or especially, if you missed a gig)


Mr Christie wows the Tripp

After doing a bit of delivery running around, I land at the gig that I started with. Pete is on form mainly just playing his guitar unaccompanied by the normally ever-present loop pedal.

Even so he is entertaining not just with the songs, but the overall presence – looking around for people to pick on, yet always making himself the butt of the joke, throwing in stories and anecdotes to boot.

I won’t mention some of the outrageous items Pete’s done tonight – those that are also here will know what I’m referring to – however as ever he finishes with an increasingly extended Easy Come Easy Go, using the loop pedal to full multi-voice effect.

If one hasn’t had a chance to experience Mr Christie in one of these up close and personal gigs, please make a point of doing so real soon.

He is playing at Mr Kyps soon, and is totally able to fill that stage with sound and quips, however it is with the close, visible audience that I enjoy Pete the most.
