OOTB 570 – 21st June – Gerrybhoy

gerrybhoyHello. This week’s featured act Gerrybhoy has been playing on the Edinburgh open mic scene for several years now, and has impressed us all with his beautiful, melodic, catchy and witty story songs. We think he is one of the finest songwriters in Edinburgh, and are very pleased that he accepted our invite to play at OOTB. If you haven’t heard him before (or especially if you have) here is a golden opportunity to hear him.

In his own words:

“Singerysongwritery type individual, a natural born weegieburger and lover of black country dogs. Over the recent past my focus has been on writing and recording songs for participation in web based songwriting activities, such as:

50/90, write 50 song in a ninety day period, completed once

FAWM, February Album Writing Month, write 14 songs, completed twice, I think?

NASOALMO, National Solo Album Writing Month, write 40 plus minutes of solo work, completed once.

I have over 100 original songs posted on Soundcloud with the help of some wonderfully talented collaborators.

To date I have considered myself as a bit of a virtual singer songwriter given my entire collection work is done in a studio and the audience web based.

Think it’s time to try out the real world, I don’t know where it’s going but I will know when I get there.”

Sign up time for all you performers out there is 7:15pm-7:30pm and shortly after OOTB starts at 8pm. Original material only and free entry as always.

Be there or be an angry rabbit stew and not a bouncing fluffy hare…

OOTB 😀

On Thursday 26th June, at 8pm, Out Of The Bedroom will be having an Annual General Meeting at The Kilderkin to discuss events and the future of OOTB.
This is in light of our secretary, Nyk Stoddart, having to stand down from his role after years of outstanding service, during which time he’s actually been doing the work of what, more ideally, would have been done by two people.
If you’re interested in being a member of the committee, we’re looking for someone to schedule meetings and take notes, as well as someone to book acts and do publicity, but outside this, we’re always looking for volunteers willing to help out with compering, sound and the setting up of equipment.
This meeting is an open invite, so anyone who wishes to join in the discussions and may be interested in contributing to the running of OOTB in a greater or lesser capacity will be most welcome.
I look forward to seeing you there,
Steve Osborne (Chairman of Out Of The Bedroom).
