Steven explained an All Day Gig, like the one at the
He said: “It’s a great chance to try out new sounds and test audience reaction, so we’re really happy we’re going to be there. The audience is always honest, which really helps when choosing our next single, because you can really see if people like it or not.
“A person in the audience at a gig is completely different to someone listening in a studio, and that’s what you want, an honest reaction to the music. So we always like to play new stuff as well as our more established sounds at gigs. It helps keep things fresh and the audience at the All Day Gig can expect to hear some of our new tracks.”
Steven explained that playing some of the band’s more established tracks can help capture the audience’s attention at the beginning of a gig.
“’No More’ really seems to get the audience’s adrenalin going and ‘God Only Knows’ (both of which feature on the band’s debut album) is also another firm favourite. It’s really important to draw the crowd in and get them involved from the start because then it really builds.”
Preparations are now well under way for the All Day Gig according to Steven, who admitted gathering all six of the band members together on the same night for extra rehearsals can be a challenge in itself.
He said: “Some of us are in uni and some of us work and there’s been a few on holiday, so pulling everyone together at the same time can be difficult. But we all know our parts really well, so when we do all come together in the end, it always sounds good.
“And although rehearsals are important, I think you can really hear when a band has over rehearsed because it can sound clinical. We like to keep a real honesty about our music, it’s great to get on stage and have that real ‘live’ vibe going on.”
Meanwhile, swapping jeans for suits helps the band get into the swing ahead of a gig.
“As soon as we slip into our suits, we get into character,” said Steven: “Cheesy absolutely goes for it on stage and the rest of us really vibe off him. John and Andy are the quieter ones, so it’s a good mix. There’s a good chemistry when we’re all together, there’s a good energy.”
And for anyone who’s still unfamiliar with Gia’s dulcet tones, Steven describes what audiences can expect.
He said: “Our music is modern, melodic rock, with some dance elements to it. But it’s a mix, because then Amy floats in with piano tunes, so there are different sounds. The audience can expect a surprise when they listen to us.”
And Steven explained that the band have been basking in some of the success they’ve earned since the album launch.
“I’ve got a friend in Airdrie who told me a work colleague came in wearing a Gia t-shirt. That news literally made my day. We’ve also seen a lot more people come into the studio to buy our CD or vinyl. It’s exciting and we’re looking forward to the future.”
